    North Coast 500

    Hi folks

    Me and a mate are thinking of doing the North Coast 500 around June next year and wondered if anyone here had done it and had any recommendations on accommodation? Should we book accommodation in advance or wing it and take a chance on finding accommodation as we go? And does anyone have any personal recommendation re hotels, b&b's etc.
    Also be interested in people's thoughts about good routes to take as side trips off the main NC500.

    And I'll be listening closely, as I'll be doing it with my gal and another couple in August. We'll have camping gear also, to ease the financial pain, should the weather allow.

    No, we're shipping them. $2500 return; can't rent anything for 6 weeks for that amount, and it will be cool to have our own bikes... Buddy's is a 'Wing, mine an F6B with an added tour trunk for the trip.
