Synopsis
For anyone who ever wondered what it would be like to cast aside their cares, gas up their motorcycle, and hit the road for the adventure of a lifetime, this series allows them to experience the thrill of just such a vacation as experienced from the perspective of travelers and long-time best-friends Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. Beginning in London, England, McGregor and Boorman set for a 20,000 mile trip that will ultimately lead them straight into New York City. Along the way the pair attempt to keep their BMW R 1150 GS motorcycles running smoothly while encountering an endless collection of colorful characters. Four short years later McGregor and Boorman would set out for adventure once again, this time traveling from John O'Groats, Scotland to the southernmost point of Africa in The Long Way Down. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Not long enough, for my taste by jujuwiz March 22, 2006 - 8:09 AM PST

I knew I would love this, seeing as it has to do with motorcycles and road trips, two of my favorite things (and Ewan McGregor ain't bad either). What I wasn't prepared for was for my roommate, who has an instinctive distaste for all things motor-related, to become addicted by episode 2 and to steal all subsequent discs before I even saw them.

The wit and reality of these two guys, combined with superb editing and amazing locations, makes for a universally appealing series that transcends its target audience. But if you happen to actually like motorcycle touring, this will make you swoon.

Motorcycles in the movies! Some of these films are all about bikes, some only have a scene or two, but are still cool.
