Fantastic, and only 9 years after the event!!  Maybe we can have George Formby's 'No Limit' TT film next. Theres probably a handful of people who havn't seen that either!

A couple of preening poseurs

How to whinge, whine, truck and train yourself around the world with an entourage of four wheeled back up vehicles. It's about as adventure as any one of MacGregor's movies. A far more entertaining watch is the YouTube Ewan and thingy clips - watch from episode one. Or if you want a proper idea of motorcycle adventure read Ted Simons seminal book 'Jupiters Travels.

Nostro, you're a wanker

Have you ever backed away from your keyboard and tele and ventured further than the local pub yourself?  Even with the support crew documenting the trip, it's damned tough riding the terrain they did and for the hours they did and such big bikes.  You have to be fit and energetic to keep it up for 3 months.  Was a trip of a lifetime and they wanted it filmed for themselves and to share with the world.  Hats off to them for having done what you likely have never done.

Ah but there's where you're 100% wrong X2 Glider

I've done a fair bit of adventure riding in my time. 2000 to 2001 - 13 months, 20 countries 60,000km from Germany to New Zealand  solo. Plenty of off road stuff, no entourage, no trains, no trucks. Only two aeroplanes because of necessity - one across then fucked up and uninviting Burma from Katmandu to Bangkok, and another Dili to Darwin. Otherwise riding all the way and ferries between islands. Trip of a lifetime and an achievement I'm very proud of. I'd do it again without hesitation of life's circumstances weren't different. I.e wife and kids.

Every overlander I've ever spoken to is equally scathing of Ewan and Thingy.

How about you big boy, ever splashed through a puddle not at the end of your driveway?

Good Show

I enjoyed the programme I am sure there are a lot of bikers out there that feel they have done as much or more but you cannot belittle what they acheived, and they give it a professional look being in the business.

this got a lot of people intresting in touring ( even though not to the extreams they went to )

Charley is by far the better biker,
