Beverley to Malton (B1248) – MotoGoLoco Classics

5th February 2015 by  in MotoGoLoco Classic Motorcycle Routes

Hugely popular (and well policed – you’ve been warned) twisty B-Road goodness in the beautiful mass of land between Hull and the North York Moors. Short, at just over 25 miles but packed with enjoyment – just long enough for a lunchtime or after-work run to blow off the cobwebs. Route Map & GPS Files  [Read full post…]

Buttertubs Pass – MotoGoLoco Classics

9th November 2014 by  in MotoGoLoco Classic Motorcycle Routes

Buttertubs Pass links up Hawes and Thwaite in quite some style.

Can’t decide between a trip to the Lake District or Yorkshire Dales? Good news – now you don’t have to.

No decision yet

5th June 2014 by  in The Dex Files

Well, we’ve ruled out Scotland for our upcoming trip. One of the guys coming with us bought a Harley last year and says he can’t do the big miles needed to get up to Scotland on a three-day trip. Frankly, I’m not sure he’ll make it to Yorkshire without moaning constantly. Even Wales might be stretching  [Read full post…]

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…]
