Charley 'Long Way Round' Boorman is on tour again - this time it's a whistle-stop promo trip around UK BMW dealerships, taking in the MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show. And the tour starts on Friday - Feb 25.
Boorman will be talking about his experiences on the round-the-world trip he made with fellow actor Ewan McGregor. They each rode an R1150GS.
Their travels - broadcast as a SKY TV series - have since been made into a book, CD and best-selling DVD (which has recently gone platinum).

The promotion starts at the new BMW Bristol Motorrad dealership on Friday 25 February.
Each BMW Motorrad dealership evening event will include a special screening of edited highlights of Long Way Round footage; a question and answer session, and an autograph opportunity with Charley Boorman.
Charley will also appear on the BMW stand at the Dublin Motorcycle and Scooter Show, and the MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show at the beginning of March for DVD and book signings, photograph opportunities, and much more.
