South, to a castle

Easter Sunday, haven’t been a good run all year, so decide to head south. I haven’t ventured south much on the bike, except for a run down to Stranraer. Started from McDonalds at the Bellfield Interchange, (eh! had a coffee, honest) Got onto the A76 and followed it all the way to Dumfries, for a single road, it wasn’t too bad. had some corners and passed through some interesting places. Would have went to the see the Crawick Multiverse, but it was shut. So headed south of Dumfries to Caerlaverock Castle, a twin tower, 17th century medieval stronghold, surrounded by a moat. very nice and different to typical castles in Scotland.

Street Bob Launch

I went to the launch of the Harley Davidson Street Bob Special edition at West Coast Harley on Friday. The bike is 2013 street bob that has a 1,690cc engine, also it’s been given a great paint job, blackout engine and red rims, this gives it a great, old style chopper look. The bike comes in at £11,445, the original Dyna Street Bob start at £10,495 and even though the dark blue model is in the show-room and web site, i prefer the black colour model. I also went for the competition, you get a cool free pin badge with a number on the back that could win you a trip to Milwaukee for the 110th anniversary celebrations, or a runners up prise to Rome for the European leg. Even if I don’t win, it’s still a free pin badge.
