So where would YOU go – part II

19th October 2017 by  in The Dex Files

Thinking about where to go for dream rides, where would you go that you haven’t been before? For me, it’d have to be New Zealand. I’ve seen lots of pics and it looks amazing (apart from the infestation of orcs, obviously). I’m told the riding is brilliant. I’d love to go and ride over there. Within  [Read full post…]

Cracking weekend ride

16th October 2017 by  in The Dex Files

Hello Blog readers I hope you all had a good weekend on two wheels. I certainly had a cracking one. Met the boys on Saturday for the standard slightly-longer-than-is-sensible breakfast run down to Loomies. While most of them turned and headed for home after we’d taken on bacon, Hogsback Harry and I decided to keep  [Read full post…]

Delayed gratification

13th October 2017 by  in The Dex Files

I’ve been thinking about changing the 1400GTR for a while now. Not because I don’t like it (I do) or because there’s anything wrong with it (there isn’t). In fact, in many ways I’ve pretty much just got it set up how I like it, with the sat nav and the luggage and the heated  [Read full post…]

I ain’t superstitious

But I’m having a day at home in the office, not riding my bike. If you’re out there today, just be careful – okay?

Where would YOU go?

11th October 2017 by  in The Dex Files

After yesterday’s post, I got thinking. Where would I most like to go back to, to ride some more. Portugal’s definitely top of my list. I really enjoyed the food, the weather and, especially, the roads. Miles of great corners, hardly any other traffic. Perfect. Obviously, northern Spain‘s a close second – but you ride  [Read full post…]

Busy, busy

10th October 2017 by  in The Dex Files

I hate to sound like I’m getting old, but I think I’m still getting over the Portugal trip. Even after a quiet weekend, I’m still pretty much exhausted. I was supposed to put a post up yesterday, but I was too busy and too tired to think straight. Actually, that’s not true. I was too  [Read full post…]

His and hers

10th October 2017 by  in The Dex Files

This struck me when riding with Number One Son on his Versys 1000 and his girlfriend, Little Miss Sunshine, on her new Ninja 650. They’ve done that thing couples sometimes do – got the his-and-hers versions. You do see that a lot, don’t you? Hubby on the Panigale, missus on the mid-capacity Monster. Or more  [Read full post…]

So much for my quiet weekend

9th October 2017 by  in The Dex Files

About my last post. Not getting the bike out over the weekend. Yeah… I’d pretty much just posted that when I heard the sound of bikes arriving. It was the full clan: Number One Son and Little Miss Sunshine on their Kawasakis – Versys 1000 for him, Ninja 650 for her – followed by Number  [Read full post…]

I’m NOT going on a trip

7th October 2017 by  in The Dex Files

I’ve been away a fair bit recently. There was the weekend in Croyde with The Fair Lady Scully as well as the probably-too-long boys’ trip to Portugal. So today I’m NOT going on a trip. My friend The Hack invited me to go up for a beer festival, but I’m just (whisper it) too tired.  [Read full post…]

Portugal: our best bits

6th October 2017 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, The Dex Files

I got together with the boys (apart from Big Ears, who was working) for a beer last night. We picked out our favourite bits of the Portugal trip. They might help you if you’re thinking of going (and if you’re not, you should…) 1 The Sera da Estrela In a trip packed with amazing roads,  [Read full post…]
