Look carefully and they have done a few practice runs before the camera shoot, even rocks on track look like they have been deliberately placed there------!

What? I don't think they were on virgin earth. They were following a trail and any shots from the front meant that the cameraman went on ahead. You don't think they were where they said they were? On a back stage Hollywood lot?

I have run some trails like that in New Mexico. I thought I was going to have to walk out of there. Good thing I was on a KLX250S.

Please keep politics out of your comments. Thank you.
Nothing personal, just an observation, pointing out some things that jar with someone who used to examine documents for a living.

Always found that exaggerated hand movements when talking is a sign that everything is not kosher, either.

I thought the vid was entertaining too , in the same as these farcical Utube how to vids are, good for a laugh but I just don't take them seriously.

You obviously do , but then some folks vote for Trump , everyone is entitled to the choice their intellect leads them too!

I like the video (even clicked the "like"), watched it to the end, found the guys funny and was SURE from about 50% thru it that they are sponsored. Now, I have no clue by whom but cui bono. On the other hand I have done YT vids for over a decade and if I learned anything it is that you do not get subs by being negative about anything and even YT itself will de-monetise you if you are. It matters not who you are or what you are negative about. I have given up on the idea of ever making money with being factual about anything, I chose to do the vids I wanted to and forgo the cash.
Not everybody does that and few are lucky enough to not have to report too many mishaps (Itchyboots) so although what you use is of questionable quality you drew the ACE card and got away with a good piece.
I got shot badly when I reported initially on the many frame breaks I had personally seen and photographed (most of them) - it mattered not that I had proof. Nobody ever got shot for saying that something he barely knows and drove for a short weekend it a fantastic piece of tech. such is the world. I would not bring Trump into this though.

First, not sure what US politics has to do with an Australian's view of a video, other than to show us that you actually believe what your mainstream media wants you to believe. This alone makes all you say about this video BS. :)

Second, these are videos meant to entertain, not educate. No different than any show on the telly. Sometimes they might have to do an additional take, or do a scene out of order, or even dub over voices to make a good video.

Both Zack and Ari are former motorcycle racers who worked in moto-journalism for years and had a popular video series with Motorcyclist Magazine. They are now employed by Revzilla which is one of the largest motorcycle accessory retailers in the US.
