Ewan McGregor & Charlie Boorman Ride 13,000 Miles On Harley-Davidson LiveWires
Back when the miniseries “Long Way Round” debuted with actor Ewan McGregor and his friend Charlie Boorman in 2004, I binge-watched every episode, engrossed in their circumnavigation of the globe on a pair of BMW R1150Gs ATVs. Then when they produced “Long Way Down” documenting their 2007 trek across Europe and Africa down to Cape Town on Beemer R1200GS rides, I viewed all six of those episodes as well.
So when Joe Gustafson of Harley-Davidson sent us this info on the friends’ latest adventure, and we viewed the trailer, we just had to share it with you-
The trailer for “Long Way Up,” the epic, new Apple Original series from stars Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman is now available. The first three episodes of the 11-part unscripted series will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, September 18. New episodes will roll out weekly, every Friday.
“Long Way Up” reunites McGregor and Boorman for the ultimate adventure in travel and friendship after more than a decade since their last motorbike adventure around the world. In their most challenging expedition to date, the two cover 13,000 miles over 100 days from Ushuaia at the tip of South America to Los Angeles. In order to contribute to the sustainability of the planet, the duo travels on modified electric Harley-Davidson LiveWire® motorcycles.
Using cutting-edge technology, they travel through 16 border crossings and 13 countries. The friends travel through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and up through Colombia, Central America and Mexico along with their longtime collaborators, directors David Alexanian and Russ Malkin, who follow in the first two electric Rivian trucks ever made.
“Long Way Up” was created and executive produced by Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman, David Alexanian and Russ Malkin. Claudio von Planta returned to oversee cinematography.
Check out the trailer below. I think I’ll be binge-watching again…
