1989 Honda PC800 Pacific Coast from United States of America
Not a beginner bike, but it looks like one
Nothing has gone wrong, only falling over.
I wanted to add my comments that it's not a really good beginner cycle, and it's not a scooter. I have owned many bikes, and though I would love to love this bike, my opinion has changed as I have ridden a lot more bikes.
There is something that is so unbalanced with this bike when stopped that it makes owning it a scary experience. You will go down. I don't care how big or how long you have been riding, the PC will bite you in the ass. It corners just OK.
The hassle of getting to your engine and the plastic tabs is a horror...
If you're serious about a PC, look at an ST instead. Now looking back at it, I'm glad I sold it. Won't get another.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 1990 Honda PC800. I agree that the handling can be strange, but some of this can be attributed to incorrect tire pressure. You need to have at least 38 PSI in the front and 40 in the rear. Counter steering helps (push the bar) for the direction you want to turn. The bike IS heavy, but not as unmanageable as the reviewer suggests.
