Love watching her on her trips. She bought a used 2013 Honda CRF 250L.
Fixed that for ya G-D. That knot on the back of your head will heal soon. The coffee cup can be replaced too.Her videos are a pleasure to watch on several levels. Excellent editing and I particularly enjoy the drone footage. With her geology background they're also educational.
("But dear, I'm just watching this lovely young adventurous, blue eyed blonde, with a sexy accent woman for the geology lessons...")
As a new rider, the Royal Enfield Himalayan is a great starter bike. At 411cc's it has good power but will not wheely when you crank on the throttle in 3rd gear.I've been watching her show too.
She decided to start riding an adventure bike while on vacation in SE Asia.
She had never ridden a motorcycle before!.
Light at 400 pounds in compare to most other larger cc ADV bikes out there.dogwater, Noraly had a Ducati Monster prior to buying the Himalayan (Basanti) she rode through Asia (season 1).
Dave, the Himalayan is not a light bike. They're 400+lbs. They're much like the Burgman 400. A bit heavy. Some say, under powered. Fast? Nope not at all. Will it do what you ask of it? Yep.
Good to know DJ, I will start watching her vids when possible and NOT skip the ads.Not sure if most know how YouTube pays out for video bloggers. Google owns YouTube and also AdSense. It is AdSense that pays for Advertisement views.
For every view that you get and the viewer does not skip the advertisement, you get up to $0.03 but if they skip the Ad after the 5 seconds, you get $0.007.
So take one of Itchey's vids with 109,000 views, she may get at most $3,000 if every one watched the Ad's. But most will skip the Ad so more like she gets less than $900 for her time and expenses.
She is buying about 10 Gig's of data from her cell provider for EVERY video.
And her overhead is also not cheap from Episode #1 thru the series, the flight to locations, buying the bike and outfitting it, petrol and maintenance and lodging. She pays tolls and entrance fees to visit locations. She pays the host country taxes and fees too.
So, please do not hit that "You can skip the ad in 5 seconds" but just mute it for the 15 seconds so she gets more money.
She could sell links to items and then every time someone buys something she could get up to $5. But she does not do links.
Thanks for introducing her Dave; just watched her power thru the Sani pass S05,E14. Impressive! And I'm happy to be reminded that a small bike can often do things better than a big one. It would be much harder wrestling a big loaded BMW enduro along that route.Love watching her on her trips. She bought a used 2013 Honda CRF 250L.
Last year another women rider did Sani Pass before the heavy monsoon rains. She did it on a BMW F800GS Adventure bike and was loaded down. But the road way was in much better condition back then. When Kinga did it there was dirt between the rocks holding then in place. Noraly's trip was loose rocks and potholes to climb out of.Thanks for introducing her Dave; just watched her power thru the Sani pass S05,E14. Impressive!

In the review below the (6 foot tall) rider's comments at 14 minutes are interesting. He seems to like it , overall. One of the more "thought thru" reviews.And I'm happy to be reminded that a small bike can often do things better than a big one. It would be much harder wrestling a big loaded BMW
Dave_J said there maybe a twin cylinder Himalayan in the works. A Suzi DR650 twin would be nice for the pavement between trails.I have a friend here in UK who has put 14000 miles on his, in just over a year. Fuel consumption is unbelievable, even to this B400 owner.
If it is the existing 650 twin, then it will be a wide lump!there maybe a twin cylinder Himalayan in the works
