New Bike - - -

Hopefully I will be picking up another motorcycle this week before I leave for vacation. I have been looking for the right Honda Pacific Coast since March, and I finally have a couple that are what I want.
So possibly this weekend will be the magic hour.
I know not everyone likes this motorcycle, but I have loved them since they were first sold in the US (1989). I guess it is kinda like the KLR, some love em, some hate em.
Just thought I would share.

Here is a picture of one (not the one I am looking at, just a Generic).

While I've always made fun of them with names, (Pathetic Coast, Rolling Refrigerator) I've also admired them.. They've got a excellent, proven engine, plenty of power, and that storage trunk is second to none!!

They were a bike before their time, and because they were viewed as goofy, they never took off like they should have.. Now they're a cult bike, with an extra cool factor because of it..

If you snag one, we'd love to hear your feelings on the bike!!
