How do you guys feel about MotoVlogging?

Just curious if you guys do it, or know somebody who does it?

Also what are your thoughts on it?

Just curious how the motorcycle community views motovloggers.

Trying to learn as much about bikes as possible.

My impression is that the only people needed to sustain motovloggers are the motovlogging community.

I could watch one if it were well done. I've never found one that is.

YammieNoob did a decent job of editing, cutting out a lot of the 'ummm' and silence and rambling, keeping mostly the content. This is a good idea, makes the video tighter.

However, almost no one that does this is particularly thoughtful or well reasoned. Like, if I want to hear an expert talk, I'll listen to a podcast. A guy on a motorcycle is probably not at the top of his game in terms of producing content. He's paying attention to the road even if he's smart, so he's not going to be super witty or sharp.

And if the guy doing the vlogging is dumb as a brick, or is a squid, I don't want to see what he does or care what he has to say.

On top of that, the videos aren't particularly exciting or engaging. Like, woo, car taillights.

Now, if someone rode a lot, recorded their riding, and did voiceover to illustrate techniques being used, hazards to avoid, something that happened on a ride and how to anticipate next time, etc, that could be interesting.

Horribly boring honestly, and most of the dudes doing it are the worst lol. I had a bunch of youtube goons get mad at me because I told one guy parking his bike on the sidewalk was retarded.

I still don't get it. Do any of you guys park on the fuckin sidewalk?

@capitalcrew In many European countries this is completely normal, but sadly not here in the UK.

I've done a few, they've all been removed. I did meet my best man and all my groomsmen through motovlogging though. I know of a bunch of people who do it well; thoughtful or funny commentary, well edited, interesting bikes/locations etc. I find most of my favourite stuff is bits and pieced on the bike, mixed with off the bike walkarounds, interviews etc as they have much higher production quality and can be well thought out rather than bashed out in one while concentrating.

Most of them I can't stand, but each to their own.

Well in the US it is unnecessary and retarded lol. If you're in a city where there isn't a lot of parking that's fine. If you're in a strip mall with a ton of available parking you're just an ass. It's more likely to get messed with on the damn side walk IMO, and now it's in the way. I've never found it necessary, and I shake my head every time I see it. People are walking there, they don't need your bike in the way. If you wouldn't park your car there why do you feel the need to put your motorcycle there?

Never if it's just the sidewalk, like walking width. But at the grocery store where it's like a car lane wide, over near the edge of the awning, yeah. At the movie theater where there's like an aircraft carrier size of sidewalk off to the side of the entrance? Yeah.

I understand that some people like it.

Personally I find nothing of value listening to a person ramble on while riding in traffic. What is the point?

@capitalcrew I agree it's not reasonable where there is parking and tiny sidewalks. If there is room though, or lack of parking, or sometimes just to be drier or safer. I've seen bikes knocked over in parking spaces as cars pull in without noticing a bike is there and not stoping in time. I've also seen other bikes squeeze into the space with someone else and kick the other bike while getting off etc.

It's all situational, but with the room to use a sidewalk, and adequate reason not to park in the street (or not have parking available or ridiculously priced then I'll take the sidewalk every time.

I dunno. I've just never seen a point. That's what insurance is for. I park my 45k dollar truck out there I think my 12k dollar motorcycle will be alright. If someone knocks it over and totals it I get a check and can buy it back dirt cheap for a sweet new track bike lol

The same people that thought GoogleGlass was a cool idea. Especially in the urinals...

No, it's all lame. I thought about getting into MotoVlogging, but my idea as to do the vlogs during some of my races, but then I saw Marcel Irnie (and probably others as well) had already done it and all of a sudden my idea seemed less appealing so I didn't pursue it anymore
