Quite a few of my rides were inspired by people who took the time to share their travels on blogs or forums. Now social media has replaced blogging but Google cannot archive Facebook so everything posted there is lost in a few days.

Moto Bloggers and other informative sites

(The list continues to shrink as blogs are abandoned, or region locked or pay walled)


Motorcycle forums were almost forgotten when Facebook Groups arrived however now people are becoming aware of Groups shortcomings and lamenting the loss of forums. Fortunately some of the best did not close and you can still enjoy their vast libraries of information.

ADV Rider – this forum is so big many of the best ride reports are buried under the more contrived. Here are a couple I found interesting and inspiring. 

Ride Asia – a smaller motorcycle forum that has inspired some of my riding in SE Asia

Golden Triangle Rider is also a good source of information when riding SE Asia


I don’t watch any of GoPro videos being spammed to Facebook by every person and their dog. But I sometimes watched the guys from South Africa on The Bike Show and I like MC Commute since Adam took over the role and in the wasteland that is current motorcycle press FortNine has some good content even if I often dislike the distinctly Canadian presentation.
