Why buy a PC800
Written by moipc90 on 6/9/2010 at 03:54 pm

The question is not so much "why buy a PC800?" but rather, "why buy anything
else?"
As a relatively small ei.short rider I was looking for a touring motorcycle, all
were too big and heavy for me to be comfortable with. I did not want to have to
do a lot of maintenance either mechanically and esthetically, I don't want to
spend 3 hours polishing chrome after every ride. I want storage, comfort, quite
and STYLE, fugly is in the eye of the beholder, I for one think they look
fantastic, ho and I'm thrifty, so I was not looking to spend a fortune. The
only reasonable solution is the PC800.
Now, not everyone can own one of these marvels, one must be self assured enough
to dare to be different! If you cannot be your own person you are doomed to ride
a "Hardly". I for one do not feel that I have to justify my choice to anyone,
which is not a problem as most people don't know what kind of bike I'm riding
and what to make of it anyway. If you think PCs are rare in the US, try riding
one in Canada, they are very few and far between, indeed!
There is no other motorcycle before or since that can even compare to the PC, it
is in a league of its own.

      You have summed that up perfectly and have probably explained why I love the PC800 so much. I worked for Saab Great Britain for 10 years prior to my retirement 3 years ago. I still drive a Saab(as well as my Chrysler300C), so I can clearl

    Well, in my case, I didn't actually *buy* her... Ride was given to me after I repaired her after my accident with her. I just love her, and I don't get to take her out much... :( It's complicated. She needs a paint job, and that'll ha
