Not whining, just highlighting a reality. I would also refer you to my post directly above where you posted this, saying that I wish her all the best of luck.Now I imagine you would have to deduct expenses, besides the cost of the bike, and then divide her "income" by the 12 hour per day x 7 day per week job, which I am sure not many on this channel work as many hours. I wouldn't buy another Himalayan and attempt to import it into South Africa just to keep purists happy. Why not buy what is available, especially when COVID is still impacting your travel. I would also suggest those who find it no longer entertaining to "change the channel". Kudos to Noraly for doing what others only sit around and talk about on their couches, if it is so easy and she is making so much money, then I suggest it would be easy for anyone to do the same. Tired of whiners.
I did the travelling thing when I was younger than Noraly, including spending a month riding around in Malaysia on a rented moped when 'adventure' bikes weren't really a thing outside of bikes custom modified for specific trips, with a couple of jerry cans hanging from a bit of rope for spare fuel, my rucksack bungeed to the front to stop the from from bouncing up and down on potholes, and for emergencies I had a bicycle pump and puncture repair kit..... That was pre-internet, and watching Noraly's initial adventures triggered memories from thirty odd years ago before I broke my knees in a climbing accident.
Like I say, not whining - or sitting on the couch to talk about it - I've been there done that and the t shirts fell to bits and got used as rags quite a long time ago.
I respect that she has turned it into a business, but the obvious fakery when she turned it into a business also turned me off from supporting her channel.
