I don't know if it comes out in the show or not, but she was riding through Peru with a torn rotator cuff to go along with the foot injury. She's tough.
Agreed, simply having the show is a plus, despite it's obvious marketing advantages to BMW.
On as side note, how hard would it have been to fit those bikes with knobbies...or even dual sport tires? My god I would NOT have taken those roads on those tires on those bikes voluntarily. They appeared to be trail attacks?
I think that's why they picked noobs, most seasoned riders would have pulled those tires off in a heartbeat.
