Aloha, good to meet ya, bra. Used to live in Kailua myself for a few years, while stationed out at K-Bay. You'll like it here, especially the touring and 50+ forums based on what you wrote. Can't help you on a good west coast winter tour though...my suggestion would be Arizona - not exactly beachfront.
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
