I tend to wonder about the ADVrider vs HU thing. I like both sites and find them both very interesting in different ways. If I need immediate help on my g/s I go to ADV, but info on travel I use HU. In some ways the ADV site is more engaging and active. The biggest thing is that they are not at all monitized which is huge in my book, they only have one small voluntary contribution link at the bottom.

To each their own though, the Grants provide a valuable service and the videos are cool and worth in IMHO.

There are sections in ADVrider where there are some real idiots and I have been burnt before there. However ADVriders have also saved my ass too.

Like every place there are good eggs and bad.

I would love to hear more on the subject however
