Baron Von Rumbled

Baron Von Grumbles true identity revealed on forums

Baron Von Grumble

HE'S virtually a household name for motorcyclists, with over 100,000 subscribers on YouTube - but the true identity of the vlogger known as Baron Von Grumble has remained a mystery.

Until now.

BVG's distinctive voice was recognised by fans when he appeared in October on a daytime TV programme using his real name, to discuss a matter unrelated to his alter ego.

He has subsequently been unmasked on more than one motorcycle forum, with users posting his picture as well as a link to his professional profile on LinkedIn.

On of BVG's best-known helmet camera videos sees him drop a GSX-R1000 in a watery ditch while inexplicably attempting to take it green-laning. He has also interviewed racers at the TT, including Guy Martin, while always keeping his own face out of shot.

BVG told Visordown: 'The whole thing is like a fun sort of game.'

He added: 'Most people in the industry know who I am anyway.'

Even though the information is already out there for anyone to find, BVG has asked us not to report his true identity. We're nice here at Visordown, so we won't.

Unless you really want to know.

Is it better to maintain the mystery? Do you even care? Let us know with your comments below.
