For many people Facebook, YouTube and Instagram has replaced blogging. However social media as of writing remains a search engine Bermuda Triangle and anything not recent disappears. Some fantastic rides that were only posted to Facebook are now forgotten and all the wonderful images and stories lost. I think it’s a shame because my touring was initially inspired by interesting rides on blogs, not from the ‘look at me’ stuff on social media or the crappy GoPro videos that fill YouTube.
Other motorcycle travel bloggers that have inspired some of my rides:
Orsons Travel Blog (alas this once terrific site has been abandoned)
Forum ride reports are also inspirational and ADV forum has many good ones, here is a couple I enjoyed.
Facebook group recommendation:
Black Dog Adventure Club – A bunch of guys who organise low cost bike tours in Asia.
Rental shops I can recommend:
Another motorcycle forum I that has inspired some of my riding:
Best roads guide for Europe
Worldwide sights and road depository for riders
Motorcycle bloggers I read.
Unfortunately my list keeps shrinking, as people stop updating blogs or let domains lapse but there are no doubt many other good rider blogs I have not come across. If you keep a active riding blog then send me your link.
