After further review, opting for the OEM rear carrier and saddlebag mounts would be my best option. That would do the trick.

Thanks for all the feedback!

Thanks J....I hope they do make an more ADV inspiring model but it's anyone's guess really if they will.

All the best and ride safe.

Because the NC700 comes with a 17" front wheel I think TKC 80's are the only fitment at this time. Front is 120/70-17 rear is 160/70-17.

Don't you have to put a TKC rear on the front anyways.
Why couldn't you do the same with any other 17 rear?

Think the Pirelli MT-60 dual sport front would also fit:

I didn't realize that. Thanks.
I am doing a trip in July from Wisconsin to Colorado. Riding there and then a week of riding and camping of the bike. I definitely need different tires than the stock ones, but were thinking the TKC's may be to knobby for the ride out.

Shinko makes a 120/17 front/rear 705,but only problem is that it's a tube type BUT most people run it tubless with no issues.
I will be running TKC's front and rear on both our bikes from Seattle to Deadhorse and back in June.

Would the tkc fit under my stock front fender or would it need to be modified.

Pirelli Scorpion Trail Dual Sport tires also come in the sizes for the NC.

I have a set of TKC's and like them for road riding. I have used the Pirelli on my old 919 and really liked them for that bike. I have a set of Shinko's that have not been mounted for my XR650L and may never get mounted now that I have the NC.

Any input yet on some of this mix of ADV tires?
