Bike Security

19th November 2014 by  in The Dex Files

One thing that did occur to me. When we went to Switzerland for the big annual trip, we didn’t take any big chains with us. One of the chaps we usually ride with – who didn’t come this year – is a policeman and, like all long-serving coppers, he’s predisposed to see villains round every  [Read full post...]

Hartside Pass – Recommended Motorcycle Route

18th November 2014 by  in Classic Motorcycle Routes

Certainly one of the most famous motorcycling roads in Northern England, Hartside Pass is an iconic twisty route between Penrith & Alston, with stunning views from the Hartside top cafe.

Chains

17th November 2014 by  in The Dex Files

The one thing that bugged me on our European trip was the chain on the SM-T. Absolutely nothing wrong with it, but I couldn’t bring myself to neglect it – even when I’m on holiday, I look after the bike. So I had to take chain lube, which I applied every night. I even adjusted  [Read full post...]

Back to the grindstone

13th November 2014 by  in The Dex Files

The worst thing about going away for a week is the carnage that greets you when you come back to the office. Being self-employed, I can’t even leave stuff for colleagues to do – not the way you do when you’re in a big company. Still, I’m just about back on top of it now.  [Read full post...]

Arguably one of the most stunningly beautiful landscapes through which to ride a motorcycle. Jawdropping mountain scenery as you wind and twist through the glens between Crianlarich and Fort William. The views across Loch Leven as you pass through Ballachullish are worth slowing down for, as is the sea loch on the approach to Fort  [Read full post...]

The best lunch in France

12th November 2014 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, The Dex Files

On our way back to the UK, swinging wide through France in a pendulous arc that led to a final-night’s stop in Reims, we broke our damp journey at a roadside café in the middle of nowhere. It didn’t look terribly swanky – there was a lorry parked on the verge outside, a battered Citroen  [Read full post...]
