Three Lochs Run – MotoGoLoco Classics

15th December 2014 by  in MotoGoLoco Classic Motorcycle Routes

A triangular shaped setting out from the Southern Scottish town of Moffat, the Three Lochs Run is a short (at 45 ish miles), but absolute beauty of a ride. You’ll take in St. Mary’s Loch… Talla Linnfoots Loch… As well as Meggethead (used in World War II as a training ground for the “Dam Busters” famous Bouncing  [Read full post…]

Winter sports

15th December 2014 by  in The Dex Files

I’ve never been a particularly sporty bloke. You might have guessed that from the fact that I’m short and work in IT… Yes, I was always one of the last ones picked for teams in PE. One thing I do like though is skiing. I love watching it on the telly. I always used to  [Read full post…]

Jacket fixed it

15th December 2014 by  in The Dex Files

New heated jacket arrived: warmth restored in both hands, with my old gloves. So I can send the new pair back (and get a refund on them). Damn good job, too. I have to go to Cardiff tomorrow and riding there with one hand hot, one hand cold, would have been a nightmare.


13th December 2014 by  in The Dex Files

Got the new heated gloves. Left hand remains resolutely cold. Called the supplier. The problem may be with the connection in the jacket. This is a more expensive problem (though at least I’ll be able to send the gloves back and get a refund, if that’s the case). I’ll know for sure in a few  [Read full post…]

There’s always the Honda

12th December 2014 by  in The Dex Files

Thinking about alternatives to that (lovely) new Beemer, of course, there is the V4 adventure bike: Honda’s CrossTourer. Lovely, powerful, smooth engine. Nice build quality (well, it’s a Honda). I’ve not considered it seriously before. Maybe I should. But the trouble is that it is – and I say this as a man who likes that  [Read full post…]

New bikes

11th December 2014 by  in The Dex Files

Did you go to the NEC? I completely missed it this year. To be honest, I haven’t been for a few years as the London Motorcycle Show’s much handier for me, even if it is a lot smaller. But I have found all the coverage of new bikes pretty interesting. Again, I’m distressed to find  [Read full post…]

Semi-heated kit

11th December 2014 by  in The Dex Files

One of my heated gloves has packed up (yes, don’t worry, I found the wire without having to mug any old ladies). But only one hand is heating up. I’ve had this before and it was something dodgy in the gloves. Unfortunately, I’ve had this set so long they’re well out of warranty. So I’ll  [Read full post…]

The Cat and Fiddle Road – MotoGoLoco Classics

9th December 2014 by  in MotoGoLoco Classic Motorcycle Routes

The Peak District’s most famous of biking roads – the Cat and Fiddle. The (in)famous A537 road between Macclesfield and Buxton, passing the Cat and Fiddle inn at the summit (hence the name) is often referred to as Britain’s Most Dangerous Road, the fact remains that it is a fantastic, albeit challenging ride. The road starts in Buxton  [Read full post…]
