Pulled the Trigger!

After 2.5 years without a bike, I'm FINALLY back in the saddle. Got a '97 PC800 with 12k miles on it. Local bike out of Vista, CA. I'm the third owner.

It ain't no BMW, that's for sure. But neither is cost or reliability an issue, either.

Re: Pulled the Trigger!

I've always considered the PC800, "The Baby LT" ... but that's just my two cents. Have fun and enjoy. Congrats on the purchase.
Don't expect too my love from these parts ... but then again ... when did that matter anyway?

Thanks, guys. I'm very happy with it. The most important thing being the LOW cost of ownership. After having to do some major financial retooling, $22k+ BMW's with $3-4k FD rebuilds are out of the question.

I'll always dream of my GT. But that was another life, now.
