Several years back, I used to spend quite a bit of time on Social Media. I was an early adopter of Twitter and spent a ridiculous amount of time chatting with friends through the service. I resisted Facebook for a long time but that eventually followed Twitter and I was signed up and participating. Instagram followed a little while later.
Between the three services, notifications on my phone were getting out of hand. When Twitter shifted to more noise than meaningful updates, I deleted the app and walked away. In an effort to cut back on the Facebook Noise, I began cleaning house (I had a lot of “friends” through my cigars website and while they were nice people – there was simply too much to manage). Instagram was the one account that I’d managed to keep under control, mostly because I wasn’t as deeply invested in the platform.
Over the years I’ve been keeping up with my Instagram account – but its been very much a personal feed. I’ll share photos of a cigar I’m smoking, a bourbon I’m enjoying (usually along with the cigar), a photo of my dog while out hiking, or something amusing my kids were doing. It’s been a hodgepodge of updates that cover a wide variety of topics. Great for friends, not so much for a blog that I want to see gain a bit of traction in the motorcycle community.
In an effort to keep with the Niche of Motorcycles (and my blog content in general) I decided to go ahead and create a brand new Instagram Account for WaltInPA. To be quite honest, starting from zero is both a little exciting and a little depressing. At times I feel like I’m talking to an empty room but I realize community comes with time, effort, and being genuine.

One of the real pleasures in life is the ability to hop on my motorcycle and ride. Often I'm not quite sure where I'm going, but I almost always wear a backpack. Neither my 2022 Yamaha MT-09 SP nor...

One of my favorite things about the WaltInPA Discord Server is that we meet for Motorcycle Group Rides several times throughout the riding season. Sometimes these rides are short spur-of-the-moment...
