Ewan McGregor’s surprise visit to Moto Guzzi

Published: 18 September 2007

Ewan McGregor surprised Moto Guzzi fans from across the globe when he rode into the annual Giornate Mondiale Guzzi (World-Wide Guzzi Days).

The star of the Long Way Round and Long Way Down is a Moto Guzzi fan and currently owns a Griso 1100, and after a trip round the factory Museum, Ewan McGregor picked up his new white Moto Guzzi California and rode it back to London.

Moto Guzzi fans rode into the event on the banks of the River Lario in Italy from as far afield as Norway and Denmark, as well as the UK, and the highlight of the weekend was a huge party on the riverbank, where Moto Guzzi owners were rewarded for their loyalty with a selection of awards, including one for the youngest fan (just 16), and the oldest attending Moto Guzzi rider, who was 76.
