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.

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…

Jim battles the elements

23rd October 2013 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, Riding TIps

Travelling back to Yorkshire from my overnight stay in Moffat at the Buccleuch Arms, (why is it that I’ve never yet managed to leave the Bucc’ on time?! – I always find myself chatting to someone / having another cup of coffee / jet-washing the bike / meeting another rider, and setting off hours after  [Read full post…]
