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.

Female Solo Ride Around The World

A perpetual learner of the world driven by an insatiable curiosity. Undaunted of what lies beyond the comfort zone for raw experiences, I am always setting new travel goals. Travelling has allowed me to witness the beauties and tragedies of this world which were transformative to my outlooks. What I eventually discovered is the gap between our perspectives and reality on the ground in places beyond the borders. Through storytelling, I hope to forge connection, especially in a time when humanity is overshadowed by dooming media portrayal of the outside world.

One woman motorcycle rider and her adventures
AboutTrip reports and motorcycle related events, focused in the north of Thailand. (Although in recent years I have ridden into Laos & Cambodia. See: Trip Reports & Border Crossing Guides).
(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 for Smiles – From my old ride region a five year RTW journey
- Around the world in 800 days – Part one of perhaps the biggest ride on ADV forum
- Angola, its not like they said – the best ride report I have ever read. If you only read one, choose this.
- Pakistan on a GS 150 – incredible scenery and a great ride report
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.
