Long Way Round. Again. And again...


Biker Boyz: These two are going the long way again. Cool!

Though they’ve already been around the world on their BMW R1200GS motorcycles, Brits Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman are getting ready to take off again. The two are planning two more trips – each of which, we’re sure, will again be turned into a television series. Which is a good thing, since we hugely enjoyed the original Long Way Round saga…

In 2007, Ewan and Charlie will ride from London to Cape Town, and the trip will be called Long Way Down. That will be followed by Long Way Up, where the two will ride from Argentina to the United States.

Like with Long Way Round, the riders will have a full back-up team of camera crews and mechanics and other support people, and yeah, we’re sure there’ll be some who’ll diss the whole thing because of that. As for us, we’re just plain envious. How we wish we could give up our jobs, break out of the office cubicle, fire up our bikes and ride off into the sunset…
