Honda Pacific Coast PC800 links and information

This page contains a collection of links and information organized in a way that makes sense to me. I did this for my own benefit and organized it as such.  This is not a complete or exhaustive list, just a way for me to organize some information.

 If there is a topic that you’d like me to add, a write-up of a procedure that you’d like me to link to, or anything else that I should be doing on this page, drop me a note in the comments below or send me a message through the “Contact” link above.

NOTE NOTE NOTE: The absolute best place to go for answers to your questions is the IPCRC.  It is without a doubt the best online community dedicated to a specific motorcycle (our beloved PC800s!) that I have ever heard of or been a part of.  Without all of the wonderful people on the IPCRC, 99.999% of the information on this page wouldn’t be available and I probably wouldn’t have bought a PC800.

 If you own a PC800 and want to be part of a great community, consider signing up for the IPCRC, saying hello, asking a question, and answering one or two questions, too.  It is well worth your while!

NOTE NOTE NOTE . Leland Sheppard recently moved servers for his host of websites.  If you get a 404 error on some of the links on this page, check THIS list of pages that he recently moved.  Also please let me know what isn’t working on my page here so that I can go in and fix them.

Why Do We Love Our PC800s?

This question gets asked with some frequency.  Each of us has our own, special reason for loving the PC800 from the stylish, futuristic looks to the trunk that can easily hold two cases of beer plus ice.  As I run across answers to this question and answers to why people are seeking out PC800s with increasing frequency, I will post them in this section.

The Saab of motorcycles. I think the title says it all. Even someone who used to work for Saab in Great Brittan thinks this is accurate.

The IPCRC. As I stated in the note up above, this group is the best motorcycle-specific (and probably the best general motorcycle) community I have ever been a part of or even heard of.  If you have a PC or when you buy one, pop on over to the IPCRC to say hello.

 In a pinch, someone will come and help you.

Light Sport Tourer. Our bikes are light compared to a Goldwing.  Plus smaller riders can flat foot a PC much easier than other sport touring bikes.  And then there’s the anti-Harley factor.

Just Because. Some people buy a PC just because…  Just because of a lot of reasons!

Why One PC800 isn’t Enough. Leland owns a total of four PC’s.  And he has very good reasons for owning each of them!

 I wonder how each of those PCs feels knowing the love affair he has with the others.

An in-depth analysis of the PC800. Everything you ever wanted to know about why the PC800 is awesome.

The Prius of Motorcycles. One IPCRCer sees the PC as the Prius of motorcycles.  He also likes the ample trunk room.

Because they are Amazing. This IPCRCer loves the versatility and the PC’s abilities at high speeds.

Even the Brits Like it. This review from when the PC was being imported into the UK on the gray market shows that even the Limeys like the PC800.

It’s Disgracefully Practical. The musician David Wilcox finds the PC800 an embarrassingly practical bike to ride.  You might also look up his song “Eye of the Hurricane” as it is motorcycle-related.

It whispers “tater tot tater tot tater tot”. No Harley “potato potato” to worry about with a PC800.

It has Room for Groceries. And so much more!

A Comparison of the Kawasaki Concourse and the Honda Pacific Coast. A rider with many thousands of miles on both bikes weighs the pros and cons, and finds in favor of the PC800.

Famous People Like the PC800. Or at least one adult film star seems to.  He has a custom orange and white PC800.
