Long Way Round

Kevin and I just finished watching a great mini-series titled “Long Way Round.” The series aired on British television, and documented an around the world motorcycle trip taken by Ewan McGregor and his friend Charley Boorman. From amazon.com:

  • Tagline: 2 men, 2 bikes, 20,000 miles…
  • Plot Synopsis: This documentary series follows actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman on a motorcycle trip around the world. The two friends will travel through such places as Siberia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and Alaska, before finally ending the journey in New York. The filming will be done by on board cameras and one ride along cameraman.

Here’s the amazon link: Long Way Round at Amazon

If you are interested in such things, I loved it and highly recommend this series.

Long Way Round

The worst part is, its been cold here, so I haven’t been out on the bike in over a month. Lately I’ve really had the itch to go riding, and this movie/mini-series did nothing to help that situation. Not only that, but I am pretty convinced at this point that I need a dual-sport (apparently two-bikes between us is not enough).

    7-episode. I think the 10-episode version is not released yet.

    R 1150 GS = heavy darn bike for off-road

    In Kazakhstan the camaraman’s bike broke down, and they bought a Russian 250cc two-stroke for $1000 new. It was much better off-road because it weighed 250 pounds less.

    Race to Dakar is next on our list to watch.

    whoa….i missed all these comments. No more bikes while there is still a house to pay for (probably, anyway). But after that, all bets are off:) I bet I can’t even touch the ground on the big bmw. Any future adventure bike will likely be under 600cc.
