You mean "Feed your Restlessness" ? Talk about a Crap Ad Campaign advancing a Crap show.

In the beginning of the first episode, they are riding Honda 100cc dirt bikes at some a school. Anyone remember the name of the school, or have more info on it?

It's likely cornerspin.

www.cornerspin.com

They also spent some time at TNT motorsports with Ike De Jager.

Hope this helps.

I've been to CornerSpin, and that certainly doesn't look like the same facility to me. If there were table jumps and such, Aaron sure didn't mention it and I had a quite lovely discussion about the build and future plans.

I had the episodes on kind of as "background" noise while working away one day. My younger son (dirt rider) sat down during episode 3, and after five minutes said, "Other than the Neale guy, these clowns don't know how to ride. How did they get picked for the show?"

The TV got turned off after that.

Yeah.... I'm sure the other show that used average riders on adventure motorcycles to highlight a needy orphanage in Peru was wayyyyyy better.

Pffft. If only everything could be as good as what you and I could produce, eh, Yossarian?

Great show...anything with two wheels is better than watching cars going around in left turn after left turn!

Pissed you guys are so off base

What a bunch of whiners. So let me get this straight. Reading most of these comments, the conclusion from this august group of "riders" is apparently that a dedicated motorcyclist with three decades of experience in the saddle and a strong streak of altruism, who finds a way to connect a desire to help fund an orphanage with motorcycling, is worthy only of derision and fault-finding because he didn't do it exactly the way you would. Wow, I wish i lived in your world. I think the show is excellent. The fact it used inexperienced riders makes it better because it shows non-riders what it actually means to saddle up and ride South America. That there's some contrived drama is probably unavoidable; TV caters to the lowest common denominator because most TV watchers are pathetically devoid of any capacity to appreciate real life, so they have to be juiced like a drug addict. Think Orange County Choppers; what a joke. This show was nothing like that. You should be applauding this show, not panning it. Instead of dishing out shit and rejecting a show that could help put a positive spin on motorcycling you guys seem convinced that if it doesn't exactly, precisely meet your expectations it should be wildly canned. No wonder motorcycling keeps drifting farther and farther from the mainstream.

You're right, we have no basis to judge whether we think something is good or bad.

Pass the bowl of pus, please, I'm hungry.

Oh please, it was nothing more than an infomercial for BMW for goD's sake.
