Hello, my name is Warren. Daydreamer, lover of spicy food and wine snob.
Motorcycle Paradise is a blog for people who like travelling by two wheels.

Originally I started a 'home page' late 90's about nice riding roads teaching myself HTML, scanning paper photos and using a dial up modem. I called it Motorcycle Paradise after a motorcycle editor used the term to describe my favourite riding area. Since then much has changed. Now we have numerous resources on where to ride and this blog is my travel journal.

Why not video? I am asked this by everyone I meet. Well actually I was a video enthusiast prior, spending 10 years shooting analogue and digital. However video tends to force you to make things to entertain others and thus I never enjoyed later viewing of what I produced. Photos remain a wonderful way to record memories for later viewing. They also lend themselves well to capturing landscapes I ride through. Unlike video photos allow me to focus on what I like, not shooting and editing to entertain others.

Feel free to contact me. When not riding I try to base myself in Japan or Philippines and am happy to advise on riding either. I do get a lot of spam so if I have not replied your message may have been filtered by mistake, try social media instead. Marketing people - if you are interested in engaging me that's great but note I do not post anything not written by myself, no fake endorsements.

You may find references here to ‘Iron Chef’. Previously this site was hosted on Blogger. Google used to prompt you to create an alias for Blogger and at the time the crazy TV show was a hit in Australia. Fate led me to later meet the real Iron Chef 坂井 宏行 Sakai Hiroyuki, but that's another story...
