Motorcycle writers and other links




Blogs are not in vogue now but for all the talk about everything shifting to video when people seek detailed content rather than entertainment magazine sites and forums are still turned to.

Inspiration and information for my travels comes from reading ride reports on blogs or forums foremost. I trust what is being written by fellow moto bloggers whilst I consider most things on YouTube or Facebook will somehow be advertising.

Still a good place to ask for advice but be aware they also attract trolls and idiots like moths to a lamp.
Some of the best ride reports I have read were on the ADV Forum. Recently ride reports are getting contrived, like Instagram, but here are three favourites.

The ride reports below take a long time to read,this however is easy to enjoy in one sitting with fabulous images. It starts off as a bit of a lark but develops into a dangerous edge of the seat story. If you only read one ride report on a forum, make it this one.

Sheldon is from my home region and after a horrific car accident where he literally died he decides with his 2nd life to see how far he might ride a motorbike. This report takes a long time to hit its stride and I needed to scroll past the aussie ‘ocker’ writing at times however it builds into an incredible journey visiting every continent on earth – yes even Antarctica.

This is a five year round the world ride which ran at similar time to Sheldon’s above so I was enjoying to read both each week. Part one is a visit to the major wine growing areas of the world then part two shifts gears as Ed’s travel gets more adventurous.

I don’t come across much video blogging that I can watch. Boring POV footage or contrived arty cinematography.
Try some of what is published by the people below.



Everything on Facebook is fleeting by design and often lacking in content but it is the place we all hang out even if we say we will stop.

I previously enjoyed following Rhys Lawleys youngest RTW rider and now this young bloke posts the most enthusiast selfies on his ride in Iran and Pakistan.

I didn’t find his dear george stuff amusing however elsewhere he writes some very entertaining things in what has become a ocean of press releases from the motorcycle magazines.

Peter has taken his FJR all over Australia and Europe and has one in the USA now which I hope he will be posting about soon.

Facebook groups are a cross between a page and a forum. There is a great bunch of people at the Black Dog Adventure Club which has a focus on riding and travelling in SE Asia.

NB. Not endorsing what any of these people publish, just suggesting you may find something of interest.


Hey go right ahead and post something here. I'd love to hear from you and your comments will be published soon as I review them - this is just to stop spam otherwise I end up with 50 'cheap viagra' advertisements posted here.
