Blog Profiles: Motorcycle Travel Blogs
Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. This week’s roundup features a few motorcycle travel blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.
My family consists of a bunch of big motorcycle buffs.
In the ‘70s, my dad used to ride his motorcycle cross-country. I’ve always wanted to do that, but I can barely ride a bicycle properly (I also can in no way afford a motorcycle).
Other than a faint memory I have from when I was younger and rode motorcycles with my father, I know virtually nothing about them and thought it would be interesting to see what the motorcycle nomad might have to say about the world. These motorcycle travel blogs are worth a read.
1. Motorcycle Diaries
This blog began travelling the roads of Europe in 2008. They offer interactive features to help you plan your next motorcycle (or car) journey, showing what may be the most scenic route for you to take as you journey to reach your destination.
The blog has grown to feature adventures taken all around the world, and also has some general motorcycle interest pieces.

Safia Miletus is a traveler on a budget with a plan “to live on the road as long as she can.” Her blog showcases a love for seeing the world and making the most of life, all the while saving a hefty amount along the way.
I liked this blog a lot because Safia comes across as someone with a bright personality who really just wants to share her happiness with the world. In certain ways, this gave her blog a self-help vibe, which I honestly found refreshing and enjoyable.

3. A Redleg’s Rides
This blog received an award for the top 100 motorcycle blogs and it deserves it.
I love this blog because it reads like a proper journal and Dom Chang kind of reminds me of some of the members of my family. He posts a lot of beautiful pictures of sunsets (just like a lot of my family does on Facebook).
As a side note, this blog also features some motorcycle maintenance, and, as someone who can’t understand how anything works, but loves watching people work on stuff, I loved it.
Posts I thought were interesting: Tech Day: Top End Removal for a BMW Airhead, Uraling to Castlewood Canyon State Park

RoadRUNNER is actually a magazine that features a blog-style portion on their website. Like the websites mentioned above, it shows different journeys taken across the world. It also provides information about new products coming out and up-and-coming events.
I particularly enjoy the Bucket List Roads portion of their blog posts, which is the Michelin Star of roads – places to travel and experience before you die.
