Ride NC 500 Nov 2020
« on: November 11, 2020, 10:05:24 AM »
Bored and nothing to do I looked at the weather map for the Highlands and the route NC500 picked my dates and went:

Peterborough to Inverness about 480 Miles - Over night Travel lodge
Inverness to Lochinver - Overnight B&B - About 230 Miles
Lockinver to Inverness - Over night Travel lodge - About 270 Miles
Inverness to Peterborough - Left at 08:00 filled up at Perth then Scotch Corner - arrived home at 16:30

During the whole trip I saw one other bike 1250 GS two up
Roads were clear
Roads were dry
Look out for gravel on the corners / leaf's / look at your sat nav ref tightness of bends / some blind hills / ride to conditions
Saw no police
Petrol is not an issue
Sat Nav 6  worked fine for the whole trip

Some photos posted in gallery  :152:

Brave man - NC500 in November- Brrr! Bet you didn't suffer too many hold-ups with the tourists! Pictures look great.
