    8000km Motorbike Trip Across The Balkans is a silly sounding music video, great title, great adventure, but silly video, no details, just a commercial kind of video, sucks, that's why very few views compared to later videos.

    Awesome video mate!! I can't work out if the motorbike shots are from a Chest-Mount or a Headstrap? Anyone know, it's really bugging me?

    Where it all started! You've grown so much over the past four years Jacob, you should be so proud of yourself because myself and thousands from around the world are.

    It remains to come to Russia. It is good (in summer) and there is something to see.

    You've inspired me. I spent 2017 living by Lake Atitlan in Guatemala and wound up buying a cheap motorcycle. I drove that thing all over the place. From one coast to the other, but didn't document with video. The other day while looking into Bali, I watched your video with the camera attached to your chest and it made me realize that that's what I want to do! I'll be moving back to Guatemala in 8 months and when I get there, I'll buy a way better bike and I want to travel all over Central America and video as I go along. I'll also be saving for my trip to Bali and want to rent a bike there and travel all around as well. Thanks for creating this content!

    So I was thinking about you running away from the camera as fast as you can and I just came to the conclusion that you were supposed to go back to get the camera and I was like “So don’t look back, right.”

    I'll be honest Jacob, I found out about you and your channel a few days ago. After watching you and your friends on the Austria/Swiss trip I kept on watching your videos. They are great, the music, the quality and the way you express yourself in general is awesome. Hope your channel can grow even more, you deserve it. Best regards from Netherlands. :-)
