Scotland's NC500 MAY 2019 road trip.


Recommended Posts

 Just a little something from my local rag, I live on the NC500 route and the local plod are always on the lookout.This has only come about because of the horrendous driving of some of the people doing this route, I do like to use my Zed to its smiles per miles potential  but the speed some clowns come through the village were I live and other villages on the route is fkn stupid to say the least. However that said there are many many miles of isolated road were any Zed driver can have loads of fun not all at high speed I do most weeks, hell I have fun visiting one of my sons and never go over 35mph :drive1.  I will now step down from my soap box, apologies if required:D  https://www.northern-times.co.uk/News/P ... 092018.htm

Just a FYI, but I assume the members coming up from the south who haven't done it before, you'll need 5 (five days) to do this. The Thursday to travel up to Perth / Edinburgh area meeting point for the kick off on the Friday morning.

Tempted to join along.

 

What sort of plans would be on for the Monday? Just wondering if us down south need the Tuesday too to drive back :D.

Last time the guys from London and south drove all the way home on the Monday. I try to plan the route so we are as far south of the NC500 as possible to accommodate them. You need to think about your homeward bound journey, possibly taking a overnight stop on route home on the Monday night or you can hard core it and do it on the Monday. Entirely up to yourself as to what way you want to work it. Same applies for the start on the Friday, but most southern members drove up on the Thursday and stayed over for a refreshed start on the Friday morning.
