Follow her too.It worries me somewhat she puts herself in isolated areas as a lone female rider.

Frankly I thing we get fed a lot of propaganda about areas/countries being unsafe for women.

The girl has such a great attitude to life and consequently seems to get the best out of the people she meets. What a great advert for the himalayan as well, it seems to be holding up really well. I have test ridden one myself partly inspired by her but for some reason felt a bit underwhelmed.

I'm also a fan and subscriber. I even donated a few quid to her petrol fund.
Charly and Ewan? don't make me laugh, they had a backup team of how many? This lass is doing it on her own. [And without the constant Blooman whinging ]

I don't worry too much about her security,but her diet, it seems to consist of porridge, bread and assorted dumplings.There doesn't seem to be any escort.People she meets on the road always meet her gaze, clearly there isn't a cavalcade of 4x4's behind her.

You can't have watched all the videos, the food on the whole seems healthy(ish,) to me, unlike most British transport cafes.
She has no back-up team at all, and on the rare times she has needed assistance, local people wherever she has been have been VERY helpful, unlike I am afraid my 70 years of experience in Britain.

Let's not forget either she is riding an Indian-made Himalayan purchased in Delhi. She has had very few problems in her 105 YouTube episodes and I can't recall any that were manufacturing issues (she had a puncture, fuel problems due to poor quality fuel, needed new tires, her seat is getting worn etc). She does the manufacturer's recommended services and changes the oil regularly. She is 80 percent of the reason why I just bought a Himalayan (North American version sold in Canada) But I wished that I had access to the Delhi priced-ones - I would have gotten it in a heartbeat and managed with any issues that cropped up.
