Neale Bayly Rides kinda sucks

I find this show kind of annoying. Seems like a more commercial version of Long Way Round. Over produced, staged, fake, whiney, not what I expected or hoped for.

Yeah I just watched it too. The woman was kinda hot, in a cougar-ish way. Annoying though. Maybe it was the Rallye 3 outfit. I wish I had someone to follow me around & pick up my GS when I dropped it.

I also did not like the lead guy doing psych stuff on his riders. WTF, why is it his job to get that one guy out of himself and engage the natives more? Maybe I don;t understand what this is about, I was just surfing channels and saw GS's cranking though scenery.

That desert stretch looked tough though.

Seems to be in the 'Reality' crap TV of late, don't think I'll bother watching again.

I didn't realize it but you're right. I expected a legit show about GS's and technical riding, it is just an MTV reality show on GS's.

Not the greatest show, but these riders were brought on for possible adoptions, so that's good. It also sheads light on poverty. Either way, I'd rather watch a bad motorcycle show than a good MTV show with a bunch of bitchy twenty somethings who think they know it all.

If there's anything worse than a reality TV show it is a reality TV show that tries to guilt trip me into being more socially conscious about whatever, esp via manipulating my love of bikes. No thanks. YMMV.

I may watch it again with the sound off.

Yep.

I watched the first episode, realized it was "reality" tv with manufactured drama and decided not to go any further.

I'll just stick with reading ride reports.

Mainly a long info-mercial for BMW GS bikes and riding gear, but I did like the actual BMW bike commercials. Had not seen them before.

I couldn't agree more. The "drama" strikes me as pretty pathetic. I won't be watching any more either

Hey, the bills have to be paid and these people are not die hard off roaders. cut them some slack. All I am seeing is a couple of GS's tearing it up in Peru wishing I was one of them. Good enough for me.

Watching it now. Fuck me what a turd. Typical yuppie fucking wannabe's who see everything as a competition. Type A where the A stands for asshole. The chick in particular was fucking useless.

If I only had to watch Yank TV I'd fucking shoot my tv set too.
