PC's Adventures in Pictures

[[[Where PC's been MAP LINKS AT BOTTOM OF THIS POST]]]

This is my first thread.

I wanted a place to post the pictures I take while I am out riding.

I guess first of all I should say that PC stands for Pacific Coast.
The Honda variety.
Also known as a PC800.

Here is mine.


And the back.


I love the trunk.
I call it my Little Red Truck.
With that and the GIVI you can put a lot of stuff in there.

Most of my riding is done through the Garden State Tag-O-Rama and the South Jersey TOR.

I got my motorcycle license June 13, 2008.
It was a Friday too.

The pictures above were taken when I brought the bike home July 2, 2008.
It had 38,808 miles on it and now I have just over 50,000.
I am the 5th owner and it appeared to be well taken care of.

I guess that is enough back story for now.
I'll post stuff as I go along.

--------------------------------------------
What the initials PC do not stand for:
politically correct
personal computer
photo chop (even though that could be the case, as you wiil see )

--------------------------------------------
PC.....
38,808 miles on 7/2/2008 when I purchased it as the fifth owner.
55,555 miles on 5/10/2010
56,618 miles the Odometer/Speedometer stopped ticking
60,553 miles on 8/22/2010 I put on my first set of tires, Dunlop, making 21,745 miles on the tires that came with the bike.
62,555 miles on 1/29/2011 I put in the new Odometer/Speedometer.
New front brakes 9/29/2011
76,555 miles on 7/27/2012 new tires, Dunlop. Making 16,000 miles for second set of tires.
90,079 miles on 11/19/2013 new Micheline tires. Making 13,524 miles for third set of tires.
90,079 miles on 11/19/2013 new Rear Breaks. Not sure if old ones are original or not, but I would assume so.
91,003 miles on 1/18/2014 when I picked up Triumph.

--------------------------------------------
TT.....
12 miles - put down payment 1/4/2014, 6 of the 12 miles are my test ride !
12 miles - Picked bike up 1/18/2014, Friday. Put 150 miles on that day.

--------------------------------------------

I have added a map just in case anyone wants to check these places out.
They are listed alphabetically by the first word.
Locations on the map will be at the end of the post with an @ after it.
Nothing fancy with the names. If it says "Ben Franklin @" look under "B".

Stops from 2009 thru 2011 have just an @ sign after them.
Stops from 2012 and afterwards will have the last two digits from the year after them like @12 is from stops made in 2012.

It appears my map info has gotten too big to keep in the signature line and I have too many stops for one map.
So here are the links for my maps.

Welcome, PC. The bike looks very similar to the DN that Honda brought out recently. It basically has the same motor.

Very comfortable.

I'm no expert of course, but to me it rides very nice.

The fire tower in the picture is on Apple Pie Hill in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
Apple Pie Hill is the second highest point in Southern New Jersey at a whopping 209 feet.

I'll bet when you think of New Jersey you don't think of trees do you?
But here is a view from the top.


And it looks like this from all four sides of the tower.

The Pine Barrens / Pinelands cover 1.1 million acres.
As you ride through the area all you see for the most part are Pitch Pine and Post Oak trees.
There is a lot more around of course, but you have to look for it.

Here is a view down from the tower to my bike.


Ahhhhhh !!!!!!! New Jersey !!!
That's more like it !

Hello Vermin,

I am honored that you would respond to my thread.

I have read your two trip threads here.
Great stuff !

I often think about you when I get to a situation that is questionable and I think "If Cack can make it, I can too.".

Hey PC Rider. My brother inlaw has a black PC. He's had it since the mid 90's and he loves it. When he got it all of our kids were little and they called it the Bat Bike. He's also talked two of his friends into getting them.

I didn't realize the DN had the same motor.
I love not having to do any valve adjustments too !
Just gas it up and go.
And check the oil once in a while.

The DN however has hardly any carrying capacity from what I read.
I'm not sure they even have any carrying cases for it.

The PC800 has a lot of room.

Yeah, I didn't think so !
Unless it was one of those high tech spy cover-ups !


Thank you for clarifying that for me, I appreciate it.

Their web-site has their location in Riverside and the location I was at is across the creek in Delanco.

I've been perusing this thread. Pretty cool stuff, I also love your bike. I almost picked one up in 03 but passed on it. Now I'm kicking myself as it would have been the ideal bike for the kind of riding I enjoy.

Sorry Domromer.
Life has been a little busy to find time to respond here.

I thank you for reading my ventures.
There is a lot of interesting stuff in New Jersey.
And I still have a big list of things I have yet to see.

The PC is a pretty nice bike.
I can not see myself using anything else with all the stuff I do with this one.

I have more stuff to post and update the last things I posted so I am getting to some of that now.
