If you ever want a side car for it let me know..... have a complete setup that I took off the morning before she wrecked the Helix. It is a "home made" unit built by a gentleman that is an airplane conservator the Air Force Museum. Pretty sweet setup.



What a blast that would be! Do you have any pics? (not that I could afford it, as I think it probably costs more than the Helix itself...) :lol: Unfortunately my "wants" are limited by my pocketbook - otherwise I would live in a warehouse filled with bikes, with a small house built into one end...

Oldone - look on your local Craigslist. They have been building Helix since 1986 (?). You can usually find them pretty cheap if you have patience.

I highly recommend most any scooter if you like riding around with a s*** eating grin plastered on your face. It's like being a kid again!

That Burgie is very nice. The side bags are almost overkill as the trunks on those things are ENORMOUS. Enough room for 2 FF helmets and then some.


PacRat,

I changed photos a bit ago and I think that helped matters as far as those trunks looking so large. I should've noticed that before posting that first photo. Sorry about that.

If I had gun mounts, I wouldn't need to take the alternate route of water.

I saw a Honda ST700 today. Wife like the looks... maybe in a few years I'll find an ST 1100 used that I could play on.... but I have a sneeky feeling this PC800 is my last bike. I'll just keep her running another decade.

A Goldwing. I wanted a wing when I bought the PC but I didn't think it wise to start riding on a behemoth. I am seriously considering trying to pick up a mid to late 90's one this winter.

statistics say you were right. Starting on a BIG bike is like learning to shoot with a .44 mag. You'll be better for having started with less CCs under you...or on top of you. <G>

Like FP - I can't afford any new bike right now but that 2012 Kawasaki Concours looks durn good.

All the add on things I would want are factory.

Heated Grips, TPS, The best of both Digital & Analog Gauges, Removable Bags, Keyless Entry,
Electrically Adjustable Wind Shield, .... That sucker looks pretty slick to me.

But when you think that most of us only have a few thousand invested in our PCs it don't make
no sense (yeah I know - but the moment required a double neg) to drop $20K on a new one
unless you got it layin' around. I think I have about $4K in everything (including tools I don't
know how to use & a Schuberth Helmet!)

And that SackaHockie Concours ain't got the body lines of a PC!

There. I feel better now.

I owned a 2003 Honda Silver Wing scooter with a 52kg matching Givi trunk. The scoot was a blast. Two weeks before making my move to Arizona, a fellow asked me what I was going to do with the bike. I told him I was loading it onto the moving van and taking it with me. He asked me what I wanted for it and I told him. About 3 days before finishing loading the truck he called me and said he had the money. 30 minutes later it was his scooter. After getting to AZ., I then started looking for another Silver wing or a PC. The PC came along first, so that is how I now get around. I really liked my Silver Wing. My feet and legs did not get wet when it rained, and it got great gas mileage, too.
