I'm glad it's not just me. Thought I was being a boring old fart and not getting Yammie noobs content. He and his sidekick seem like a couple of overgrown schoolboys to me, all they want is hooligan bikes with 150hp and to ride everywhere at 100mph on the back wheel, seem to have a real supermoto mindset about em, can't take anything they say seriously.

Riding on one wheel is illegal,  irresponsible and dangerous it poses a risk too life and should be prohibited.
Sadly when Yamaha made my Elsie and TDR 250 they seem too have forgot this. When riding H1/H2 Kawasaki's they too demonstrated similar characteristics.  My previous honda 650 deauville and indeed SCR 950 do struggle to hoist there front wheel though so choices are available!
Personally I do have laugh out loud moments at yams videos but I think I'm pretty laid back and don't take things too seriously.
One thing he did say on a video was it doesn't matter if someone is not a fan of your particular bike .
The greatest bike ever as voted by a panel of respected experts Honda supercub...
I'm going out on my bike.
