Stuart & Jo Dowell’s Scottish Weekender

30th June 2015 by  in Accommodation Reviews, Competition Winners

Amazingly I won a weekend away courtesy of James at MotoGoLoco so I decided to make it into a long weekend taking Jo (wife) on my KTM 990. We departed the East Midlands and hit the A1, then took in a couple of diversions for lunch in Helmsley. Many memories of FarmYard parties past… slightly  [Read full post…]

Nicely done up

16th June 2015 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, The Dex Files

It’s been a while since I’ve stopped in Moffat. As normal, we were staying in the Buccleuch Arms – the garages for the bikes make it our preferred stop every time. They’ve done up the dining room over the winter: very nice. The new Beef Rib is a very welcome addition to the menu, too…

6th March 2015 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel

Choosing to run in my brand new bike by heading off to Scotland at the end of February was necessary in terms of putting 600 miles on the clock prior to its first service, but the weather was predictably foul – rain, sleet, hail, snow and gusty side winds.

Back to Base

1st April 2013 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel

This week I headed back to Motorcycling Mecca (the Buccleuch Arms in Moffat) to catch up with the crew. Four hundred miles up the A34, M40 and M6 aren’t exactly the most fun one can have on a bike, but it’s always good to see the boys again and catch up. The hospitality of the  [Read full post…]
