There are tons of great resources out there for new motorcycle riders (Windburned Eyes being one of them). While any site that tries to present helpful information to riders is alright in my book, not all blogs and websites are the same. I have a few that I stick to, though I do visit plenty of other sites as well
I try to read at least a few articles every day or watch a video or two. This keeps me thinking about how I could become a better rider and what information I need to pass on to new riders through this site. While my research goes far beyond five sources (I also utilize big magazines like Motorcyclist and Cycle World, among others), these are the websites I find myself coming back to again and again.
This definitely isn't an exhaustive list. There are plenty of other great websites and blogs out there, but this list is a good place to start.
RideApart has some of the best practical information out there for motorcyclist of all skill and experience levels. You'll also find really solid reviews, news and lifestyle coverage. While most the content is perfect for all riders, there is a slight focus on the West Coast, specifically California. This isn't bad, but if you're a Midwestern person (like me) some information doesn't pertain to you.
If you want to see some of the coolest custom builds out there, this is the website to do it at. Bike EXIF showcases awesome builds, does gear reviews, posts helpful guides and much more. While there is tons of interesting info on this site for riders of all experience levels, the true strength of the site is the photography and the beautiful custom builds. I typically come to the site for some motorcycle eye candy and end up popping around to a gear review or a guide for a bit.
Zen Motorcyclist has a bit of everything, the focus of the site is on the enjoyment of motorcycling and how it can impact your life, but there are gear reviews, book features and so much more. If I want to read something interesting but am not really sure what I'm looking for, I come here. Bud, the guy who runs the site, seems like an awesome person and he has a very straightforward and honest way of writing.
I came across Lanesplitter through Jalopnik (one of the best automotive blogs out there). Lanesplitter is funny, sometimes mildly offensive and really informative (it's Jalopnik for bikes). I love it. If you want good information on motorcycling and weird news stories, this is the place to come. It's very entertaining.
The Kneeslider is another kickass resource. Here, you can find articles on bikes, news about the industry, a badass list of helpful motorcycle-related books, search for your next bike and search for parts. The site looks good and it's easy to use.
