    I'm going to check out a bike in Alabama next week. The only problem is that I have absolutely no way to get it back to W Mich if I buy it. Its too freaking cold to ride it home. :vardy...I'm going to check it out on my way back from Florida and its not going to be out of the way so I have nothing to lose. I might have to rent a storage building for a few months and fly back in the spring? Are there any Michigan tranplants living in N Bamy with extra garage space? Its been kind of quiet here so I thought I would share this tidbit with you guys.:lol3

    I'm no Alabama slammer, but for what you would pay for storage, you might consider renting a one-way U-Haul trailer. If you like the bike, get the trailer. Once home, drop it off at your nearest U-Haul depot. Then you can spend all winter gawking at the new bike in your garage.

    Yeah, thought about that. Maybe I'll get there and it will be a piece of junk? It's a fifthteen year old low mile bike. Maybe I should detour through Georgia and just resist the temptation of having another bike. It would make a nice Xmas present to myself.

    Need to know what the bike is before offering an opinion.

    1997 model of something....that was a pretty good year for motorcycles as I recall. Heck, the bike I ride the most these days is a 15 year old dirt bike... '97 XR600R. And I KNOW I put more miles on that thing this summer than anything else in the garage. Sad fact.

    It's a Pacific Coast identical to my other one. You remember don't you? I had to pry you off of it. The bammy bike has 7 K on the clock.

    ANother PC?? Dude, you can ride that back up here, come on, man up there, tiger!! Hell, should be able to fit a small furnace in the trunk of that thing to keep you warm.

    so you would have 2 identical PCs? i know its apples and oranges but i had 2 HD electragluides once and it didnt make any sense whatsoever. sold one after a year or so. i have heard the PC is a cult bike, owners are fanatical. you must be in the cult to want 2.:huh or would you sell one?

    And 70s and 80s and 90s. The Pacific Coast is a great bike unless your an adrenaline junkie or trying to pick up chicks..:sweeti:babe:icy...I'm on my third one in seven years. I've put about 25 K on each one and then move on when another low mile one comes along. They don't go cheap either. This one is going for a pretty penny but whats a guy to do?

    Goat is probably going to turn this one into a full- on dual sport. Knob tires,MX bars with barkbusters. Stickers from all over the world. Body bump rails all the way around, rotopax, external tool kit tubes:clap. Ever see him ride the one he has on dirt? He rides really well.

    i figure a PC does a lot of what a gold wing does with 500lbs/$10,000 off. you say its not really fast. ...its not slow is it? :ear

    No way man. You know what those plastic pieces cost? If you can find replacement parts? Freaking mirrors are over $200...each. I did some backroading in Colorado a few years ago and that plastic pig just about killed me. My hard core dirt days are over, thats why I got the DR. It will cruise down the road at 70 all day long and still do good on two tracks.
