For many people social media has replaced blogging however the content posted to Facebook is mostly forgotten in days then is lost as it doesn’t show on Google search. Some inspiring rides that were only posted there have all but disappeared.
This is why I think it’s great having a blog or posting to a forum. Quite a few of my rides were inspired by other people, for example the Vietnam Coracle’s site has been huge help but if his info had been put on Facebook I never would have found it. And old ride reports remain a source of my inspiration, actually much more than any of the recent POV videos being spammed to Horizons page.
A few bloggers that have inspired some of my rides:
Orsons Travel Blog (alas this once great blog is currently abandoned)
A smaller motorcycle forum that has inspired some of my riding:
ADV Rider 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.
Rental shops I can recommend:
The best motorcycle road guide for Europe:
Motorcycle bloggers I read.
Fuzzy Galore (Mysteriously now region locked)
Alas my blog list keeps shrinking as people quit or become Youtubers.
