Some of my rides were inspired by people who shared their travel on blogs or forums. People now post to Facebook but Google does not index social media so those items are soon lost.

A blog whilst out of vogue is a lasting record people can continue to find and enjoy for years. Here are a few I found interesting, couple of which are dormant but still inspirational.

Moto Bloggers


Many motorcycle forums were sadly abandoned when Facebook Groups arrived however the ones that remain are superb libraries of information compared to groups where info soon is lost.

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 small friendly motorcycle forum that has inspired some of my riding in SE Asia.

Golden Triangle Rider some information for riding SE Asia.


MC Commute

I don’t watch much video, so many bike review channels are just some guy on a short ride test from shop. I watch MC Commute since Adam took over the role as I find his reviews insightful.


Similarly I rarely choose video when seeking product reviews as most channels are about affiliate sales or are click bait. FortNine is a shop – don’t forget that – but there is some informative content.


Motorcycle Diaries – a fantastic resource for best roads in Europe

Motorrad Strassen – focus on German best motorcycle routes
