I left all my bikes back home in Virginia, because I was living in Denver in an apartment and there was no place to keep the bike except on the street. So I bought the most maintenance-free bike I could find, a 1990 Honda PC800 "Pacific Coast".
Fay and I had a big time in Colorado with our PC800 when she came out to visit. Rode all over the Rocky Mountains with it.
That day was around Leadville (at 10,000 feet elevation) and down to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, which is the most impressive geological formation I've ever seen, including the Grand Canyon.
It was a nice, maintenance free bike which ran exactly the same, thanks to the Honda CV carburetors, whether it was at 5200 feet in Denver, 7500 feet in Idaho Springs, or 14,200 feet at the top of Mt. Evans, the highest motor road on the continent. Some fuel injected bikes won’t even compensate for all that …
I never had to do a thing to it except check the tires and put fuel in it. Belt drive, 6-speed, quiet V-twin engine that pulled us up hill and down dale, the suspension handled our 400 pound combined weight easily, and it had lots of room, and lots of storage space.
Collectors like them these days, the price has gone up a bit, but it did us well.
