Why buy a PC800
Written by mikeyb_houtex on 6/10/2010 at 12:40 am

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 happen this winter. She also needs a top
case with lights, and that'll happen soon enough. She's a very comfortable
motorcycle in all respects for me, with the 1.5" risers. The sole exception is
the windscreen, I now wish I'd have gotten a +6. But a minor issue, I just duck
under or wear snipped earplugs.

She's not got all the tricks that a Gold Wing has, (CB, Radio, Intercom), but
I'm working on it. I almost got the CB figured out, actually...

When the PC800 first came out, and I first saw them, I said "well, that's a
motorcycle I'd like to have." I thought they were gorgeous, streamlined, and
that trunk was a quirky cool feature. And in that Pearl White, they looked like
little children of the Starship Enterprise.

I never thought I'd actually wind up with one. Boy am I glad I have her.

So, in summation, the answer I got for you is this:

Because.

Mike
'95 PC800, "Ride"

    It is like the Saab 900 of motorcycles. Very practical. Unique. Comfortable. Solid. Great MPGs. Bulletproof. And fugly to boot... A trunk that will hold two cases of beer is something to be admired. --- In

      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

      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 d
