    New Member, planning a RTW trip with the NC700X

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Koen and I'm from the Netherlands. I ride a 2014 NCX and I want to take it around the world starting early 2019.
    For this trip I'm looking for tips and tricks to modify the bike so it will be more of an adventure/off-road bike.

    Thanks in advance and hope to see you on the road!

    How large is your modification budget?

    I'm planning a less ambitious USA to Costa Rica trip for next year. Very interested in what you come up with.

    If I was you, Iíd sell the NC700X and get something else like a cb500x rally raid or something more off road capable rather than modifying the NC700X. You still have lots of time so your not in a rush. My biggest concern is having fuel anxiety in remote places. Yeah I know you can carry fuel but thatís more things to carry. Good luck, be interested in seeing what you come up with.

    Check out "everywhereman.me" for a similar set up and trip. Not much off road though.

    If you're planning to camp it would seem the amount of gear needed would limit off-pavement capability to gravel and dirt roads.

    Welcome to the ride Koen, Your NCx is plenty capable for your planned ride IMHO... Pack what you need, pack lite, enjoy the time/ride, take lots of pictures, start a Ride Report so the rest of us can come along and above all else man have some serious FUN!! There are so very many of us fellow NC riders around that if you ever need something while on your trip, we/they'll be all too happy to help or assist you in any way!! And a Hearty Welcome from North IDAHO..!! :{)

    There were a couple of brothers that did the South America trip a few years ago on NC's. Seemed to go well
