This is the second PC800 I have owned the first one was a 1998 model which toured europe with ease but I sold it due to lack of funds ( bad move !!), so I have bought another , I have had many bikes in the passed but no are as easy to live with as the PC800 , easy to ride, easy to work on (panels not a problem once you know how to remove them , just service ride and enjoy , the only problem I have had is exhausts , they are very quick to rot , I have had my collector re-skinned and it is...

I have owned a 1990 model for a year. I had to strip it and put it all back together as the previous owner had not used it for years. I found it simple to work in ( once you learned the panel removal order) but spares expensive, especially exhaust parts. The exhaust is made of the thinnest mild steel and rots as you watch it !!!! The collector amd mufffler is around £400 when you include gaskets and sheilds. Not up to the usual Honda Standard quality All other parts are excellent, and easy... (read more)

This is my second Pacific Coast (96/98). I have been through many bikes in the past 10 years(cruisers,sport tourers,nakeds, adventure touring...etc). I have found myself using a motorcycle as primary transportation now that I am not building anything. I have a beautiful Dual Sport (DRZ400) that works famously however when I do have a small project that requires tools, well lets face it,the PC800 TRUNK stands alone. Also the efficiency and low maintance again can not be challenged by any... (read more)

The bike was first produced by Honda in 1989. I have the first model produced and it is still going strong. The boot is amazing and you wonder why Honda have not reproduced this on other tourers. the overall handling is superb with clean line and balance. (read more)

I'm the owner of a lovely 1989 in Pearl white with wood veneer dash and many extras. The sheer comfort and quality of build with more than adequate performance when needed. I don't enjoy having to remove body panels when jobs need to be done which I must say is extreemly rare as this bike goes on and on with no complaining. (read more)

I have owned my Honda Pacific Coast since 1991, would not be without it, have toured the whole of Europe, completed 600+ miles in a day.
No problem! If you are not in a rush, 55 ish will return 78mpg.
On european roads?
This I belive is the most underated motorcycle Honda have made. (read more)

Owned a Honda Goldwing and a 700 Honda Silverwing, but I'm more impressed with the PC800 than the others. The weight has a lot to do with it, because with the Goldie you have to struggle to get it out of the garage, but the PC you just roll it out, simple. (read more)

The Honda Pacific Coast 800 only bike I've seen with built-in saddle bags/ "trunk". It will easily carry two computer bags plus your lunch! or four bags of groceries.
Comfortable low center of Gravity makes it exceptionally easy to handle at all speeds. Very fast for only 800cc.
Some people report as much as 60+ mpg, but usually get 45 - 50.
Body panels cover everything, like a Goldwing. Very easy to keep clean and polish. Also keeps all working parts inside remarkably clean as well.... (read more)

Honda Pacific Coast 800 -Tremendous reliability, all the capacity of a 'Wing, but at 2/3 the weight. Comfortable for the long haul or the short trip. Enthusiastic and friendly support group (IPCRC). Looks like nothing else out there, but most PC'ers don't care what anybody else thinks, anyway.
From the perspective of a long-time owner:

This is the best commuter motorcycle ever. It's low center of gravity, outstanding storage space, good fuel economy, and ease of maintenance make it as useful as a Goldwing (almost), but much easier to ride. The only part of your body exposed in cold weather is your feet, and I've ridden my PC at temperatures below 40 and been reasonably comfortable.
There are some super-scooters (Burgman, Majesty) that approach this level of utility and comfort, but the PC800 provides a superior riding... (read more)

Overall I rate this motorcycle very highly indeed. It will perform if asked to and keeps the rider isolated from rutted road surfaces. It handles far better with Metzler Marathon tyres as against the old Dunlops that came with it and gives good fuel economy if you don't thrash it. I agree about the hassle of removing the plastic bodywork, however, once done it gives you confidence to explore. I think this bike is an engineering marvel and look forward to many a happy years riding it. (read more)

What a dream of bike to own. Trouble-free, a great commuter and tourer. I rode the Honda Pacific Coast to Alaska twice (11,000 miles round trip). All I've ever had to do is change the oil/filter, rear shaft fluid, air filter and a set of plugs. Oh, one carb sync check but it was still spot-on. Yes, they look unique, but I hate looking like all the other clones anyhow! Too bad Honda stopped making them, they are just now becoming more sought after and appreciated. (read more)

If you think id like a deauville but the panniers are too small or its a bit much for two up, or i,d have a pan european if it had a smaller engine then the Honda Pacific Coast 800 is definitely well worth a test ride. I sold mine to buy a sports tourer and always wish I,d stayed with the Honda pc. (read more)
