If you go to this Facebook "Reels" link below, you will see why those living on the route of the NC500 get VERY hacked off with some of those "doing" the run.  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( This is the main street (A9) as it passes through Golspie in Sutherland.


Good health, Bill

Such a shame that the NC500 has become a 'thing' with a name and is publicised in such a way that it seems to attract all the boy racers. After all, the roads have always been there, but the fact that it attracts people like this puts me off riding them again.

One of the benefits of being ancient is that I was able to ride these roads (and many others) before the instagram and tiktok generations latched on and ruined them. There are of course also disadvantages......
