You know what I do when I need to take a quick break from writing about motorcycles? I sit back and scroll through Instagram pics of motorcycles. Chances are, you do the same, so here are some accounts you should make sure you’re following.
Just when I thought I’d compiled the most inclusive list of all the best Instagram accounts to share, someone sent me the work of @kaycee_landsaw. This guy takes some of the most beautiful pictures I’ve ever seen, and always manages to catch the action perfectly. If you like his stuff, give his website a look. I spent waaaaaay too long on there this morning and am going to find his email address so I can ask for pics for my desktop background.
@dangerboydeegan is nine years old and rips harder than you. He’s also the son of Motocross rider, Metal Mullisha founder, and trophy truck racer Brian Deegan. I came across his account on the popular page one day and spent the better part of an hour watching videos of him do things I can’t even do on a dirtbike. Haiden actually seems like a cool little kid too, and he puts a ton of his personality in his posts. This kid is going to be a legend.
Finally, we have the boys from the Daft Punk of motorcycling: @croig.co. To be completely honest, I have no idea who or what the hell Croig is, just that I’m really into it and that I want a t shirt. They’re currently on a tour of the east coast, they designed a bike with Triumph that you can win, and they post the awesomest of shit. Follow these guys, because I’m going to try and get them out to the West Coast and into some Lanesplitter content.

Shameless plug: follow me @seanmacd to keep up with the bikes we’re riding, the gear we’re using, and whatever shenanigans we’re getting in to. If you know of an account that is as incredible as the ones above and deserves a share, tag me on the IG. You sportbike dudes need to step your game up; too many of your accounts look the same, are just stolen from someone else’s feed, or are edited to look like dogshit. Do better.
