Over the years, some favourites have been added. Some channels are no longer current (because perhaps the journey has come to an end) and some are only interesting from time to time. Some are pure information, others just inspiration. Here a great story, there hard facts. Not all YT channels are professional, but they don't have to be. Once you've been infected with the travel bug, you can overlook such trivialities. We mark motorbike channels with a small 🏍 in front of the link!
A really crazy guy is with a scooter (!) on a long, great journey. In the process he tells his Truth of the Journey (English) in a completely bonkers way. We kept shaking our heads at his creative conversions. And who wants to know what happens when you holds his tongue to frozen metal in sub-zero temperatures.... yes he did indeed test it 🙂

Männertours, the channel for creative screwdrivers (and child-heads!). Several guys go on a tour every year. On incredibly old junk bikes. We always wonder how they get through the TÜV with their rust buckets. And by the way, we are happy that our bike is still brand new.

A Polish Australian woman has been travelling the world on a motorbike for years. Alone. And takes us with her from country to country. Simply Wow!

Lea Reck is on the move after her circumnavigation of the world - alone on a motorbike - and after writing her Book actually falls in love again: apparently with her drone. She takes us along on all her journeys, sometimes to Africa, sometimes criss-crossing Scandinavia. Beautiful shots, exciting countries, not much touring, more "off the beaten paths"!
You can also travel the world on a moped! Here is the proof. Maggie shows her experiences in a highly professional and entertaining way on YouTube.

Valle on Tour
His BMW GS in very special colours is his trademark. He organises group motorcycle tours and makes films about the countries he visits. Very professionally done, a real business. It's fun to accompany him virtually on his trips. If you still like to tinker and modify your GS with all kinds of gadgets, you can also watch the non-travel videos.

Ruti also only recently started his very first motorbike journey. Bought a motorbike and set off without much basic knowledge. In March '20, he got stuck in Morocco for a few months. But for some time now he has been on the road again. He tells his stories in a sympathetic, simple and authentic way.

A Bärner couple, Xenia and Martin, travelled around the world on two motorbikes for almost 3 years. In spring 2020, they came home, and shortly before we left, we visited them and were able to benefit from their many experiences.

Sami is new to our list. He is travelling with his partner on two motorbikes all the way to Mongolia. That was the plan. But things turned out differently. Iran was the end of the road for the time being. But the two of them, who show better pictures with every video, don't let themselves be dissuaded that easily and start again a year later. This time channel.

She started over and wanted to go to Mongolia with an old AfricaTwin. But worldwide circumstances got in the way. You can see her preparations and small trips to Europe on her website.

A family with two wonderful, lively mini-sons travel through South America in an off-road camper. We don't know what fascinates us more: the landscape, the family or all the experiences. Very beautiful shots!

We had accompanied this couple especially through Europe, North and South America in their Defender. Very entertaining. Since 2020 (and the Corona era), vehicle conversions are more the topic.

Silke and Jan have been on the road for years. Stranded with a broken motorbike in Iran. Travelling on through the winter in Mongolia with a Bulli. Driving through Bulgaria in an Ural VW Passat. So if anyone has something to tell, it's these two. Sometimes you ask yourself, really, what have they done to deserve all these challenges (new German for problem!)? In addition to the YT channel, there is a very informative website and also the book Eisreise. The two of them (and again I ask myself with a smile, are they still normal?) ride motorbikes to the North Cape in winter! Simply crazy! And great.

Life with Sandy & Benni
This couple was actually the beginning of our idea to travel longer. When we saw how little you can go out into the world with, it was clear to us: we can do that too. Maybe not really a travel channel anymore, but for us the initial spark.

Also one of the first YT channels in our list. A couple travelled meeega-slow for months with a small camper van. In the meantime, their journey is over, but it was the same for them: they set off. And we were very excited about that.

I have another tip: Itchy Boots is also very interesting.
Hi Beatrice, thank you! Let's take a look and add to our list!
Kind regards "over there"!
Heike & Gerd
I like C.E.J. Adventure Documentary (if only because of the dialect 🙂 ).
Hello Udo, thank you for your tip. Now you've made us curious about the dialect.
Kind regards - Heike
