A motovlog is a type of video log recorded by a person while riding a motorcycle. The word is a neologism and portmanteau derived from "motorcycle", "video" and "log".

A person who creates motovlogs is known as a motovlogger,[1][2] and the action of making motovlogs is called motovlogging.[2][3] Most motovloggers upload their videos on YouTube, and the network of motovloggers here is known as the motovlog community.[citation needed]

History[edit]

It is uncertain when the first motovlog was created, but one of the earliest motovlog channels on YouTube is M13, which became active in 2006.[2]

YouTube[edit]

There are many channels on YouTube dedicated to motovlogging. Many motovloggers do not show their face or the license plate of their motorcycle in videos. The British motovlogger, BaronVonGrumble, stated in an interview that anonymity exists to make the videos more mysterious and exciting to watch.[4]

Sometimes, motovloggers capture traffic accidents while riding with the camera running.[5] There are also videos of motovloggers helping out randomly encountered people.[1][6]
