Noddy’s knuckle rap

8th January 2019 by  in The Dex Files

I got told off by Noddy for talking about Brexit. He’s a leaver because he wants to take back control. I’m still not sure what he wants to take control of or how Brexit’s meant to do that. But anyway. He pointed out that I’m meant to be talking about bikes, not politics. So I’d  [Read full post…]

Ever had the feeling you’ve been cheated?

7th January 2019 by  in The Dex Files

I normally steer clear of politics, but… Brexit. Really? I’ve just been looking at getting away for an early break on the first weekend in April and everyone’s telling me to wait. There’ll be too much confusion after Brexit day on March 29. Never mind that now I’m going to have to pay to go  [Read full post…]

Coming, ready or not…

5th January 2019 by  in The Dex Files

I’ve had two days laying around feeling sorry for myself. That’s enough. The bike’s coming out this afternoon. I think it might be kill or cure, but I don’t care. I need to get out of the house and I need to get back on two wheels. Just a short blast to Rykas or maybe  [Read full post…]

Sniff sniff

3rd January 2019 by  in The Dex Files

I’ve finally succumbed to the lurgy that’s been doing the rounds. Both my lads were ill over Christmas (so we were happy to pack them off to their respective girlfriends’ on Boxing Day), The Fair Lady Scully promptly came down with it. Half the blokes at our New Year’s Eve drinks were sneezing. Now it’s  [Read full post…]

New Year’s revolution

1st January 2019 by  in Daily Digest

I’m not making any New Year’s resolutions. But I have decided to change what I do and how I do it. I did pretty well with my ride-5000-miles-every-two-months thing last year (not every two months, I admit, but more often than not). So this year I’m going to aim to hit that properly. And I’m  [Read full post…]

And what did you get?

28th December 2018 by  in Daily Digest

Sorry – rude of me to talk about my Christmas present and not ask if you got what you wanted. Did you get something for the bike? Tickets to a GP next year? A new bit of kit? My other bike-related presents were generally a bit… bought by non-bikers. A couple of T-shirts with motorcycle  [Read full post…]

Navigating changes

27th December 2018 by  in Daily Digest

Sometimes I get thrown when things change unexpectedly. It’s probably my age. It means I can struggle to adapt to things that are better, just because they’re new. Which is a roundabout way of saying my primary Christmas present was a new sat nav – the latest BMW one that integrates with the S1000XR properly.  [Read full post…]

Have a great Christmas

24th December 2018 by  in The Dex Files

Just a quick note to say: thanks for reading. Have a great Christmas – and here’s hoping you get the present you really want. Even if it’s just a dry Boxing Day and a few hours out on the bike to clear your head. See you in the New Year

That’s better

23rd December 2018 by  in Daily Digest

Nothing worse than being ill over Christmas. My friend the hack is notorious for always being sick over the holiday period – and I’ve always mocked him for it. This year I thought it might be me… I’ve been layed low by a hideous flu-like killer disease that kept me off work for a few  [Read full post…]

If I hear… one more time…

13th December 2018 by  in The Dex Files

Everyone has a song they hate. And they call come out at Christmas. Which one makes your blood boil? For me it’s bloody “I wish it could be Christmas every day” by Wizzard. If I have to hear that one more time, I might just kill someone. I think I’ve already heard it about 70  [Read full post…]
