The YouTube description reads: 
Karan, VU2YEP in QSO with Rakesh Ji, VU2RAK. We were at a make-shift location and the antenna was a freely standing Diamond 7900 collinear 7/8 stacked vertical which does not practically does not need any ground !!!!...and pumping out a 10 watts signal from my ICOM IC-2200H VHF Base Station radio kept inside the Dirtsack Saddle Bag with a 12 volt 7 Ah SMF battery for operation from my KTM Duke 200 bike...and the signals were reaching New Delhi VHF ham repeater VU2DLR so loud and clear!!! Wow!

Distance covered for the long distance VHF radio contact from an altitude of 7000 feet was approx. 300 km.
