My road is forever new…
Hello, I’m Warren, the writer and photographer of Motorcycle Paradise, a free independent resource for motorcycle travelers.
There is no sponsored content here whatsoever. No paid reviews, no pay walls restricting what you can access. I finance all my rides and gear myself. No one tells me what to write. I may not be a skilled writer but in a world of AI generated fake travel blogs and YouTube reviews that simply quote press releases a site like this full of real honest experiences is very rare.
I started Motorcycle Paradise blog proper in 2006, however it’s roots go back to 1995. It was originally a “home page” (as personal web sites were once called) back when WWW was in it’s infancy with just a few megabytes of storage. It moved a few times and never became anything much until landing on Google’s Blogger platform in 2006. Now it is a WordPress site with over 35GB of motorcycling information.
The site has grown considerably since I quit my career in 2013 to ride the world, choosing to measure my success by my own values not by what friends or society thinks. What seemed to many the dumbest thing I could do turned out to be the best decision I’ve ever made. 2022 I was diagnosed with cancer. You never know how long you might have left to do what you have dreamed about.
The good news is I have had successful surgery and so far remain clear. I have resumed riding motorcycles and am continuing at ticking off my bucket list.
I’m aware that everything now is Youtube. I used to shoot video, actually for a decade. However the few photos I took became precious memories while the video was never viewed again. Primarily this site is a personal travel diary and as such I’ve no interest in making YouTube videos, which frankly have become attention seeking spam, contrived and boring.
Blogging whilst out of vogue remains a fantastic way to record travel. It also gives total control over your content and ensures you never lose access to your content – something that happens with free platforms far too often. This site serves as my photo album and I like to view it on my 4K monitor thus it is designed primarily for viewing on a PC or Tablet even though many people arrive here now via their phone.
Thanks for visiting.
