I was about to post in Day Trippin again, but I figured that I should chronicle my tinkering and riding in one place rather than over many threads, given none of the day trips are that interesting. I go on all sorts of long (500+ miles) and short rides (200+ miles) with my dog, Maddie. We ride on a PCX 125 that I've heavily modified to be very accommodating of long-distance touring. I'm also the unofficial guru of the Honda PCX -- I run the Honda PCX forums at http://www.hondapcx.org, so PM me or ask if you have any questions about the PCX. Me, Maddie, and our PCX: My PCX is a 2011 125cc MKI PCX. There are 4 versions of the PCX, mine is the oldest. The oldest model is arguably the most easily moddable version, given no one was expecting Honda to release so many versions. It's also the most prevalent model overseas, due to the HUGE initial sales in Asia. With the current modifications, my PCX maxes out at 73mph GPS and sustains power for highway cruising at 60-65mph. I do bog down up STEEP inclines, and sometimes can only maintain about 45mph when climbing mountains. I still get roughly 80mpg, sometimes as much as 95mpg if I stay off the highway. Modifications to the PCX so far: - 170cc Big Bore Kit (how-to coming soon) (Takegawa kit) - Steeper counter gear (Kitaco) - Steeper final gear and pinion (Yuminashi) - High speed variator (Takegawa) - Reinforced belt - Airbox snorkel mod - LED floodlights - Stebel Nautilus horn - Givi windshield - 12v outlet - Custom rear rack - Misc cosmetic (rear fender removal, trim pieces, etc) Modifications planned: - Aftermarket camshaft - Lowering rear shocks (stock rebound is too low, and lower height = better aerodynamics) There seemed to be some interest in my ride reports in the minimalist touring threads and the dog thread, so here's my existing ride reports: - Weekend trip on the Silverwing, 1000+ mile weekend: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=909379 - Overnight camping trip in Vogel: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=728968 - Trip through NC / TN: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=970438 I'll be posting day trips of us riding around the Southeast and me tinkering with the PCX shortly, stay tuned.
