Long Way Round - Ride Documentary

Ewan McGregor (Star Wars) and Charley Boorman documenting a journey through 12 countries and 19 time zones in 115 days for 20, 000 miles riding their BMW GS R1200's.
Just started watching it tonight...the whole thing is 7 hours 21 minutes long.

Long Way Round was first trip, Long Way Down was the second from North Shore of Scotland (John o Groats?)to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa.

Both are excellent documentaries with great footage and the people they meet along the way.

and they are both available on netflix

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

A buddy who owns the box set loaned it to me last year. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Despite the wealth of people (or lack of wealth) around the world and the political differences, this documentary goes to show you that people are people wherever you go.

Highly recommend this view.

Very good series. I have Long Way Round on DVD. I've yet to see Long Way Down, but I'd like to.
