We were taken be the Ducati and R6 ownership by the doctor, and her obvious inability to ride a motorcycle. Toy gathering? The three riders had a difficult time on CR150R bikes, light and gutless, yet were put on bikes weighing three times, having 4 times more power, in a foreign country on difficult terrain, with too short of training. Ths show is NOTHING like Long Way Round or Down. I expect the "show" won't let them get seriously hurt, but it really needed three experienced riders, and let the benefits of Peru shine through.
Don't forget the 'nutritionist' who is accompanying them....dear fucking Lord
I also find out at the end they aren't actually riding to Peru, they are flying there - fuck me what's the point.
I'm sure Neale Bayly is cringing inside because of the shit he has to do to make some dough.
