    Riding the NC500 around the Scottish highlands...

    Midges are not usually a problem in May. Once you get into Scotland there are lots of great roads you could use to avoid motorways and the A9.

    How LOW can you go????

    I lowered the rear of my NC700X by 40mm using links and the front by 12mm by lowering the forks through the yoke. Fitted a side stand from a NC700S I picked up on an auction site. I can still use the original centre stand OK and I've found no issues with the handling or suspension.
