I'm actually enjoying the show. Yeah, we as the ADV community aren't exactly the target audience, because let's face it, there aren't enough of us to make it worthwhile to cover a show like this. I think many of us would actually enjoy a show on a shoe string budget that didn't seem so "produced" and showed many of the true obstacles you run into on a trip, but that type of show would never "make it to TV".
There are definitely parts of the show I just have to look by, but for the most part I'm enjoying just being able to watch Adventure motorcycles riding on TV both at the BMW training center and now Peru. It is fun watching Neale rip it on that R1200GS once in a while too.
I'm sure its not easy or cheap to bring a show like this TV and as we get more of them and more people start watching them, we might get better shows that fit more in "our" line of thinking.
