It found it kinda slow, too. Pretty sure the rank and file ADVrider isn't the target audience. Most folks here are already tuned into the two-wheel travel vibe and have a decent set of overland skills. If it gets more folks involved in motorcycling (or at least a more positive opinion of it) I think it'll be a success. At this point I'd support almost any motorcycle travel show.
I am worried it'll give easy fuel for the Ewan/Charlie Hater Club™ since this trip comes with the support crew needed to produce a prime time professional quality mini-series and had a fairly rigid time constraint. But what can you do?
