Torill J. Knutsen and Arvid Løvik's
Honda Pacific Coast 800 Pages

The site is mostly about trips and longer tours We have enjoyed on Our
1989 models Honda Pacific Coast 800's
in Norway and abroad.

It's part cruiser, part luxotourer, part sport bike and part scooter, and unlike anything you've ridden before.

We was searching for a "new" bike when I came over a ad. on the American AAAA Motorcycle Exchange site on Internet in late May 1998. The Honda Pacific Coast 800, complete with a 1993 Bushtec Turbo trailer, was for sale in San Francisco, Ca.. I called the seller and the deal was done.This bike was built in June/ 89 and has No. 3493.This bike was sold in January 2003 because Torill wanted a lighter bike. See further down on this page.
A few days later I found another beautiful PC 800 with low mileage for sale in Washington State. This was also bought.This bike was built in March/89 and has No.1849. The seller arranged for the bike to be crated and freighted by car to Oakland, Ca. Here both PC 800's met up and was shipped by boat to Bremen, Germany.
Two months later, August 4th, a friend and I picked them up there and rode them home to Stavanger, Norway.

April 2006. Both of Our PC 800's are now sold....but I'm looking forward to find a 1990 RED one to match the Bushtec trailer a.s.a.p !!!!

May 2006. I found a nice standard 1990 PC 800 for sale in Holland! Flew in to Amsterdam and bought it...More pictures will it's time for modifying and some updating on the bike :-)
And it's starting to get how I want it to be.

From Lysebotn the road first passes through a 1,100 metre tunnel before continuing up to the mountain through a series of 27 hairpin bends. At the top of the ascent (640 metres) lies the Øygardstøl panorama restaurant. The incline on the road are up to 10%. Here are some pictures of this infamous road: 1 and 2 and link to Vidar's movie on U-tube: Lysebotn road
