Hello, my name is Warren, daydreamer, lover of spicy food and wine snob.
Motorcycle Paradise is a travel blog for people interested in riding other parts of the world.

This all started in the late 90's, there were no ADV forums, motorcycle touring or Best Roads sites. I built a 'home page' then as Google Blogger launched moved to that. A journalist described the region I was riding as a Motorcycle Paradise which seemed a good name at the time. Now self hosted using a wordpress theme with additions by myself. I’m not a professional writer nor wordsmith, poor grammar and editing abound.

Besides riding I dabble in photography. I spent about 10-12 years prior on video but found myself producing contrived things to please others that I never wanted to watch myself. It's odd perhaps to return to still photography now we have drones and everyone is a Youtuber. But it comes back to if I am producing something for others or for my own enjoyment and I am past caring about what other people like.

I'm based in Japan where I have toured all 48 prefectures. Always happy to help anyone but note I get A LOT of messages, many are spam. So if I have not replied I am not being rude, your message may have just ended up in spam folder. If you are interested in engaging me to review or attend some event then cool - but I do not post anything not written by myself and not interested in token pocket money offer to show ads.

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...
