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.

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