 I am always a bit dubious with these types of reports , but she is just so danged enthusiastic  :thumb: :laugh:

We should probably look to the Mayans for advice on how to deal with shortages of gasoline and TP . Those folks had chronic shortages of both.

Well, It's cool she can make a living doing this. Good for her! She does nice work. Will it make me go out and order a new rig? Probably not.

I've ridden those roads many times before and they are great. Idyllwild is a nice little town approx. 5,000ft and many twisties along the way. They took 111 to 74/371 to Paradise Valley and continued straight to Idyllwild. It looks like they went back by way of 10 past the wind turbines. Luckily, they were going east as anywhere there are wind turbines you can expect the wind to howl. A matter of fact, up on 74 the wind can easily hit 40+mph making the ride a lot less enjoyable. Nice video...

Her Two Wheels YouTube V7 Special review has passed 40,000 views! Moto Guzzi is getting lots of exposure from her channel. Money well spent flying her out to California from Ohio.

She is a very inexperienced rider who's main goal is to build a following, and get invited to more "press demo" rides.

Rather weak video — too much about her and visiting SoCal and not enough about the bike or the riding experience. I think she’d be pleased with any bike as long as it was good looking.

Would you rather have the Cycle World review? They basically trashed it. At least hers was very positive and she got a lot of views.

Noraly's Ducati video got over 850 thousand views.  She is definitely a Ducati fan girl.  Her first bike was a monster.

I've been watching her channel for about a year, now. Granted, she's not super experienced and may not give the best, most in depth reviews, but her videos are always fun to watch and her energy and enthusiasm for motorcycling are great. Also, some of her touring/motorcycle camping tips videos are excellent. Interest in motorcycling has been on a steady decline in the younger generations for years, and channels like hers are a good way to turn that around.
