I agree that there isn't a lot of adventure when all your gear is in a caravan of trucks. I did like the parts when they were separated from the trucks. Charley's tantrum was more because they promised bikes then visited them and retracted their offer because they didn't think they would make it. That IS pretty crappy. However, I don't feel sorry for them since they did get 3 brand new BMW enduro bikes.Saw LWR and now watching LWD. I'ts only semi interesting. All the support they have makes the trip less adventurous for my liking; the only part I found interesting was them having to find a way through Siberia's Road of Bones. Ewan's liberal anti hunting, anti gun speeches were crocks of shit.
After reading so many ADVRider ride reports, a trip is much more fun when you have more uncertainty and have to rely on yourself and maybe a couple of riding partners. Plus, Charlie having a temper tantrum because KTM wouldn't give them FREE bikes was annoying. KTM isn't even that great of a bike, from what I've heard from several former KTM owners.
