For many people social media has replaced blogging however the content posted to Facebook is lost within days and doesn’t show on Google search.
It’s a shame because my touring was initially inspired by interesting rides on blogs which remain one of the best sources of information for motorcycle touring whilst social media is mostly ‘look at me’ images and crap Gopro videos.
Some people are still blogging and some still posting rides to forums the better posts continue to be an inspiration.
Bloggers that have inspired some of my rides:
Orsons Travel Blog (alas this site now 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.
Facebook group recommendation:
Black Dog Adventure Club – A bunch of guys who organise low cost bike tours in SE Asia.
Rental shops I can recommend:
The best road guide for Europe
Motorcycle bloggers I read.
Unfortunately my blog list keeps shrinking as people stop updating their pages.
