Only if you can convince half-a-million people to subscribe.  :001:

Looking at her numbers, she's gotten over 3 million views over the last month. Advertisers pay millions of dollars for a TV show getting the same number of views, so a $5,000 Rally Raid kit is really a great deal in terms of ad spending. Especially considering that such a high percentage of her viewers are motorcyclists, while the demographics of TV watchers are much more diluted and hard to target. All this to say, traditional TV is dead meat.

I don't have a problem with product placement when the originator has already built up a following through their own endeavors, but what grips my s**t are these primped boys and girls of questionable talent and intellect reviewing crap and making millions in the process. I know I'm an old fart and the world has changed drastically over the last decade, but when a 13 year old girl has a net worth of $3million for talking sh*te about make-up for 10 minutes, twice a week, it begs a question. I work with young children (specifically 10 & 11 year olds) and when we talk about what they'd like to do or be when they're older they'll often say "a You Tuber" or "I want to be famous". Famous for what?, I ask; "Don't know...just famous". Think were fast creating a generation of vainglorious narcissists.  :151:

I get what you saying and before lock down I went to a careers events with my work for similar aged kids as when they posed a similar question asking how they thought they'd make money when they were old only a few suggested getting a job  :027: the majority said sell their bodies, sell drugs, steal stuff to sell on ebay :005: what is happening to kids today!! :087:

Well she didn't have to go that far , but she has named her bike "RONIN" a very fitting name IMHO.

She admitted that the folks from MOSKO  hooked her up with a similar package as her bike in Peru .
I like those mirrors she uses, but am told they are very pricey .

Can't wait to see what the new video's will cover.
 I hope it's not the usual drivel of churches, cathedrals , castles . Maybe some of those out of the way , rarely seen places in Europe that I fell in love with many moons ago.

Back in my Army day's in the 60's I traveled a lot in Europe and then later on in business I was lucky enough to live there as a civilian. I have family in Germany from my first marriage , so I am a bit biased towards the out of the way places.

They work out economical if you break a few OEM mirrors by dropping your bike a few times! Suspect they're probably quite a bit cheaper in the USA than in Europe too.

Bought some for my CRF250 Rally a while back and they're so easy to adjust 👍
