If you don't like it, don't watch it. My wife watched it with me. We both loved the shows, and we were able to dream of a traveling future. Then we bought a big KTM which we love and are able to use unsupported.
You sad desk jockeys are just jealous that you don't get to go on long FREE trips. The only time that you should complain about someone's bike being too big and heavy is if you have to help them pick it up
Stop whining! Go ride! In fact, go ride with your wife!
