    I started down that same road and could tell it was about to start getting expensive. Luckily, I stopped before i got to tires and suspension and bought a used KLR off of Craigslist.

    It cost less than all the mods needed to make the NC as dirt-worthy as possible. I got a 2nd bike now that is more capable than my NC could ever be. I couldn't be happier and have what I think is the ideal combo of rides.

    2 bikes to love for the win
    I even bought a 19" front wheel and did months of research on the conversion !!
    I realized one day that no matter how much $$$$ I threw at it it was never going to be the bike I needed.

    Just got my KLR Monday and already see why they sell so many...great all around bike. I really like it.

    I'm still married to my NC...just seeing a KLR on the side.
