Website of the day: The Modern Motorcycle Diaries

You have by now, almost certainly at least heard about Alex Chacón, even if you don’t know his name. He’s the fella that’s been travelling the world taking “epic” selfies, as the social media masses would have us believe.

But, as with most things in life, there’s a lot more to they story.

Yes, Alex has taken some extraordinary shots of himself in breathtaking locations. But his bigger achievement is that fact that he is probably the foremost motorcycle adventurer of the age. There’s not too many places on Earth he hasn’t ridden a bike, and as you can imagine, he has some incredible stories to tell, and some astonishing pictures to share.

His homepage is at modernmotodiaries.com and this is where you can find out all about his rides and the huge sums of money he’s raised for charity on his travels.

An extraordinary person and a fascinating site.
