short scotland trip, part two …

After staying overnight in Moffat I decided that I would head up the A701, it;s the road that runs out of Moffat in the direction of Edinburgh. By any measure it’s a fine road and is known as the Beef Tub. To be more precise the area that the A701 runs though is known as […]

short scotland trip, part one …

This week I had a couple of days spare and decided it was an ideal opportunity to have a ride up to Moffat in Scotland. The weather looked decent enough and the prospect of doing a couple of my favorite UK roads on the BMW was just too much to resist. I headed off from […]

Ordered the Puig New Generation Fly Screens for my RnineT this week … I’ll post up in due course with fitting and post fitting pictures. And yes I know in advance that it’s more likely a case of form over function.

a fine day to be on a moto guzzi …

Warm sunshine, blue sky and a few hours to spare made for an ideal recipe to roll the Moto Guzzi V7 out of the garage yesterday and to head out for a coffee. Other afternoon commitments meant that I didn’t have a full day – but I was happy enough with the few hours I […]

Anyone that reads my Blog will know that I’m always happy to say when I’ve had great service or found somewhere decent and this week was no exception to the excellent service that I always get when I call into MW Motorcycles. This particular visit was for the annual MoT for my Moto Guzzi V7 […]

RnineT – a work of art?

I was out yesterday, no where special just a 100 or so miles pottering around the back roads of Cheshire. The weather was glorious and I was glad I had left home at around 07:00am before it got too warm, mind you I feel almost guilty using the words ‘too warm’ after the long and […]

sunny morning

Lovely day in the North West yesterday. Could this actually be the start of the long overdue summer weather … it was too much to resist, so did an 80 mile round trip for a coffee.
