What is motovlogging? Well, to put it simply it's when you strap a camera to yourself or your motorcycle and you film your ride. Motovlogging is becoming really popular on youtube, and there are a few riders out there that have hundreds of thousands of subscribers. For some it is even a full time job.
I think motovlogs are great because it gives you a peak into the motorcycle community. Plus, you can live vicariously through some of these riders by watching their videos. Some of them aren't the safest riders out there, but everyone on this list is very entertaining.
Here is my list for the top 12 motovloggers to watch in 2015. In no particular order:
The classic extrovert on a motorcycle. Walterrific rides around and creates his own adventures. He doesn't find adventures, he CREATES them!
I frequently find myself laughing out loud during his videos. They are quick cuts and always interesting. He rides a Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R in his current videos, but like most motovloggers that is subject to change. In fact in his previous seasons he filmed himself riding a Ninja 650r and a Ninja 250r.
"Do it with dan. Do it with dan. DO IT WITH DAN!?! Do it with dan?" The award for the best intro has to go to DoItWithDan. It makes me smile every time, especially in his latest videos where the police officer says it as a question.
Another one of those motovloggers that uses a motorcycle as his medium to create adventures. Very opinionated, good hearted, and a bit of a hooligan. He has a wide variety of videos on his channel, from his 'cooking with dan' short lived series, to fan mail, and car videos.
An adorable girl (she would probably hate me saying that) from New Zealand. She rides a classic 2002 Suzuki GSX 250 which is currently painted a flat green color. She has a spunky personality and for some reason I can't get enough of her videos. Although I’m a sucker for accents.
She also 'flogs', or Face Vlogs which is a bit unique in the motovlogging genera. One of the few girl riders out there and very entertaining to boot. Give her a look!
Want to see some horrible drivers with amusing commentary? Then Snowcatxx87 is your man. This guy is ballsy and has an axe to grind when it comes to traffic violations. There is even a video where he pulls over a cop for driving incorrectly!
While I don’t recommend you be as aggressive as he is when it comes to traffic vigilante justice, it is fun to live vicariously through his videos. He actually does things that I only think in my mind!
You like wheelies? You like super motos? You like watching someone be a hooligan? Then you will definitely like JTGS.
A motovlogger from the south, whenever I watch his videos I can’t help but want to run out and buy a WR450SM. One of my favorite motovloggers by far.
I really like the motorcycle reviews that ARidersLife does. They are simple, informative, and talk about stuff that real riders are interested in. Plus he also reviews smaller displacement motorcycles.
Beyond reviews, his channel is also a snapshot of his life. From learning to wheelie on a bicycle to offroad riding and street riding. Definitely a motovlogger to watch!
One of the most popular motovloggers out there. His unique style of staying relatively silent during his commute and just filming the various shenanigans that happen around him is very entertaining. Watching his commute in London and what he deals with when it comes to pedestrians makes me glad the population where I live is much lower! Some of those pedestrians are idiots and do unsafe things.
He recently got a BMW motorcycle in addition to his Husqavarna Nuda 900. Both of those bike’s sound absolutely amazing, although I have to say I am partial to the Nuda’s V-twin rumble.
He’s also incredibly friendly. One of my favorite videos is when he gets off his motorcycle to help an old man that had fallen.
Ham rides an SV650 and is another motovlogger from down under. His videos are low key, relaxing, and he has a good sense of humor. I could really picture myself getting to know Ham in real life. He seems like the type of guy you could have a beer with.
His channel features motorcycle reviews, group rides, and a few crashes.
LeadPin has a very unique voice and motovlogging style. I kind of imagine he is what The Joker from Batman would be like if he was a motorcycle rider from Australia. Silly, a little bit crazy, and a whole lot of fun.
He also shares a lot of his life, even some really personal stuff. The videos where he talks about his relationships are my favorite. He keeps it real and he definitely wears his heart on his sleeve.
Oh Tom, what a gentleman! One of the motovloggers that goes off road and on longer adventure rides. He is no stranger to the city though, and has an absolutely gorgeous BMW motorcycle that he rides when he isn’t traveling across the Australian desert.
Chase (not his real name!) is one of the motovloggers that gets major points for creating tons of content consistently. He is releasing multiple videos per week and really treats his channel like a business. Part of that is because YouTube is now his full time gig.
Chase recently started doing motorcycle reviews. I don’t care too much for his reviewing style, but they are still pretty entertaining.
He also has a super cute girlfriend who runs a channel at Mrs.C2W. She is just learning to ride a motorcycle and has a great sense of humor. Both of them are really fun to watch!
My own MotoVlogging attempts. I don’t post videos too often, but I would be remiss if I didn’t at least add myself to this list! You think I might be biased?
Are there some motovloggers you like watching? Post the links below and I may add them to the 2016 round of motovlog awards!
My brother also motovlogs in Boise. In fact, a lot of the time I'm borrowing his Triumph Speed Triple to do my motovlogs! Give him a look if you want to see some fun motovlogs paired with orchestral music.
