Cool! I keep seeing one in Oahu, Hawai'i, just off the freeway near the airport that I've been wanting to check out too.

That's actually a dealership.

Owned by Joe Nicolai of JN Automotive 'fame' - he's a big wheel-Dealer (multiple car dealerships) and has owned the distribution rights for Harley Davidson in the state of Hawaii and a good deal of the Pacific - ( Guam, etc ) for a long time. But yes, it's a big new building that one could easily think was more than a Retail + + Pirate-costume store.

He does have a collection of bikes that you can see from in the upper-floor office windows (notably some old race bikes and an Aprilia Moto 6.5) when you drive West on H-1 through Mapunapuna, - and a couple in the large showroom.

Worth checking out (because it's free, but they usually don't let people upstairs) but bring your earplugs and sunglasses (so much chrome.....).

They are the Kawasaki & Piaggio dealer too, but the 'Factory support' of the Italian line is pretty much what you'd expect from guys that could barely keep Buells running, so fair warning when you start lusting for the RSV4s.

There is a nice one in San Diego next to the air museum. It has a lot of old Indian motorcycles there. I can't remember the name of it but it is attached to the car museum. I well try to let u know what its called after I look it up.
