NC 500

Post by Sgr74 » Sat Jun 09, 2018 4:53 pm

Just home from doing the NC 500 over 5 days. Great weather, great roads, didn’t see another zed. Not one. 935 miles of sunshine and no zeds. Where is everyone?

Great trip. Completed it with her indoors a couple of weeks ago, if we got that weather all the time would we ever leave this country

Well if it was Friday I was parked on the M5/M6 for far too many hours. If it was Saturday then I was returning via Snowdonia and the Brekons. :driving: :D Nice pics what a great way to spend 5 days with your Zed. 8) :thumbsup:

Bucket list material! Are the roads as empty as people say? I'd love to do it in the Zed and on the motorbicycle. It's 550 miles just to the start from me!

Roads were not busy at all. Mainly camper vans bit mist of them played ball with the passing places on the single tracks. Rest of roads have great visibility. 1385 miles start to finish for me but we'll worth it.
