Many more great blogs out there I am still discovering and will add as I think of it.

Some of my riding was inspired by Sarawak Adventure Rider and Orson’s travel blog, the later is no longer being maintained so read it before the photos are broken.


Forums

Some of the most epic ride reports I have read were on the ADV Forum.

Three favourites from there are:


Ride for Smiles 

Sheldon is from my former home riding region and after a horrific car accident where he literally died and came back he decides with a 2nd chance at life to see how far he might ride a motorbike. Gingerly at first this report takes a while to hit its stride and you need to scroll past the ‘too aussie’ banter however it really take shape once he meets a beautiful Polish girl and turns into one amazing journey.


Around the world in 800 days / Ed-Venn-Ture the next 800 days

This is also 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. It starts out with wine and hotels but then shifts gear to a very different type of journey as Ed evolves and continuously pushes boundaries sleeping rough in dangerous places as well as some romance in what is a grand journey.  


Angola, its not like they said

The ride reports above take months to read, this one is easy to enjoy in one sitting. Starts off as a bit of a lark but develops into a seriously dangerous edge of the seat story. If you only read one ride report on a forum make it this one.


Video

I don’t come across too much video blogging that I can watch for long, making enjoyable video is not as simple as just buying a GoPro. However below are both entertaining.

Facebook

I follow a guy that I used to find abrasive and overbearing on Australian motorcycle forums, he still can be but is also perhaps the last person writing intelligent and thought provoking articles related to motorcycling. A beacon in a sea of press releases masquerading as original writing being published by puppets. 

Boris Mihailovic


Lots of intrepid riders come and go on Facebook, always nice to follow someone on their adventure. This young bloke is currently riding around the world, besides superb photos the guys enthusiasm and energy leaps off the page!

Ben King on the road


Not active at present but you can take a look back at the great rides Pete has done on his FJR including a lap of Oz and Europe in depth.

Other sites I frequent


Motorcycle Diaries – excellent best roads listing for Europe which has many road trip stories from riders to get you motivated to ride there.


Instagram

A lot of riders are active on Instagram now days posting excellent photos but obviously few words however it can lead you to find many interesting people.

You can see who I am following via my profile motorcycle.paradise but I have only started to explore it.
