    A buddy just sent me the link to your video. Not sure if I saw it a year ago when I started researching PC800s, but now that I have an 89 of my own I am surprised there was no mention of the wind-up-your-pants-legs effect nor the limited space between peg and shifter for heavier riding boots. You are are absolutely correct that it is more like driving than riding and I have to remind myself that I am on a motorcycle and to keep an eye on the tachometer because the engine is too quiet to use sound to determine shift points. Still, of the three road bikes I own, the PC is the one i most often hear quietly calling my name from the garage.

    Former owner, here. I had '98 until 2019. It was the last year of production, and only 500 were made; the '97 and '98 eschewed the rather silly front wheel and fork fairings for a sport fender with naked discs. It was easily the best motorcycle I ever owned, and the most– well– endearing, because it was so frigging reliable. It just ran and ran, and brought home the groceries– literally. If it had fuel injection, it would have been perfect. Our young reviewer is, naturally, unimpressed with the PC's performance, but in the real world it holds its own against traffic easily. 52hp doesn't sound like much against 600 lbs., but trust me, you don't need more than that to stay out of trouble. And the bike is plenty nimble for what you want it for. I would still have it now if I rode enough to keep myself out of missed-shift hell. I'm on an Aprilia Mana to make that irrelevant… but may switch to a Honds DN-01 as these old joint need more room to stretch out. Everyone should take a ride on a Pacific Coast… and don't forget the cold bubbly for afterwards– just bring it along.

    What he doesn't mention is that many of these designs details were used first on the 1982 CX500 Turbo and 1983 CX650 Turbo. If you look at one of those bikes you will
    see many similarities. The Turbo series of Honda bikes were a nice blending of sport and touring. The PC800 was an attempt to reach a market of people that didn't want
    the huge Gold Wing or Aspencade. Mostly it was designed to target women who were tired of sitting in the back.

    I think it failed since you are still exposed to the weather, still have next to no storage space and you’re not protected by a massive cage, strapped in with deformation zones in front of and behind you
