This. I find most of them down right irritating and full of them selves. Inflated egos for the wonderful youtubes. I have only seen one or two that offer any real substance about riding but they arnt very popular on youtube. The big ones like Do It With Dan, Chase On Two Wheels, 6 ft honda... for the most part the content they publish is useless and watching people rage about shitty drivers on the road while trying to convince all of us how good they are is uninteresting.

The crazy thing is that the vast majority of us are mostly against motovloggers (at least for the sake of argument we mostly are) yet some of these guys have a million subscribers and make more money than I have made my whole life.

If it isn't the people who ride daily watching and following all of their videos then who is it? the people who wish they could ride?

I just find the whole concept quite crazy.


Oh... and as far as the sidewalk goes, I prefer a parking spot haha

Yeah that's some bullshit isn't it? It amazes me how they can have so many views, yet if I post a video from an actual race, that's a hell of a lot more entertaining to watch (at least in my opinion), I'll be lucky to get 100-200 views. Yet these guys are getting hundreds of thousands if not millions in some cases.

And to answer your question...yes. I think a lot of those viewers are people who don't actually ride and they just want to. I'll be honest I used to watch motovlogs several years ago....and that was just before I got my first bike and in those first few months after I got it, thinking that I would learn stuff from watching those videos. But after a while I realize the content is usually crap, most are not very good riders, there wasn't much to learn, and I could learn more from other sources. So basically I watched them when I was a wannabe rider and a newbie rider who knew basically nothing about bikes.

I have often wondered this myself. I can literally count on one hand the number of people I have met that ride past a basic level, track, and race that actually are supportive of them. I imagine their main watchers are people that are just getting into motorcycles or fan bois that are too strapped for cash to buy a GSXR, sorry PS. I mean the last time I watched one I was literally dumb founded at the end because I couldnt list one thing I took away from the video that was useful or interesting at all but I was reminded to like and subscribe. I feel like most of them just circle jerk each other over how many subs they have as it equates to money and somehow they think this makes them a credible source of information for all things bikes which disgust me. There are a few people on this forum that truly deserve that kind of success while pushing actual, factual stuff about motorcycles.

That being said, PS and PG need to stop being introverted assholes and start motto vlogging with guest appearances from RJ2112, SBK, Felix, and JD41 hahahaha.

I request The Outfields - I don't wanna lose your love tonight. Please do this for me. I attached the video to minimize the amount of time you spend looking for the song resulting in an increase in the amount of time you spend practicing.

The sad part is that I am old, and grew up in the 80's. My head is FULL of lyrics to nearly every 80's song imaginable, which is why I can't remember things like my wifes birthday.

I know every single word to that song without looking at the video :-p

...I just wanna use your love, toniiiiight.

Well, not yours specifically. It's the song. Really.

Slo, I'm not here to question the feeling you have for me that are clearly growing; radiance beyond all previous limits. All of your desires abolished by the plenitude of their satisfaction.

I told the guys at work you were gonna do this and they seemed pretty excited about subscribing and watching.

You, sir, are on to something. Take your track time and just sing the whole time, mic in the helmet and your gymballed gopro for video, layer them, and upload.

No planning, no cost, just sweet sweet coin.

Never ride faster than you can stop

I find most of the vloggers who ride on the street boring, they short shift into fifth or sixth and just cruise and talk shit, but I find myself watching the enduro and off road vloggers a lot more. Enduro Kex, joey mac420 and Vroom Vroom Dana are all pretty funny and with enduro you never know what's next so it's pretty interesting.

SBK we need more than one Marcel Irnie, you shouldn't let that discourage, in fact that should push you to do one even more!

Haha, that would likely be pretty funny. The stuff that I say when riding on the track would be hilarious.

"She's got eyes of the bluest skies, as if they SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT thought of rain.

I'd hate to look OSHIT I'M GONNA DIE into those eyes and GET ON THE GAS YOU FUCKING PUSSY see an ounce of pain"

It would be like listening to tourettes guy.
