I just finished wrapping up watching The Long Way Around. It's a documentary about Ewan MacGregor (Obi Wan Kanobi) and Charlie Boorman riding their BMW GS1150s around the world in 120 days.
They rode from London through Eastern Europe, to Kasikstan, then through Russia, down to Mongolia and up to Siberia then shipped their bikes to Anchorage, then through BC and Alberta, into Montana and then over to New York.
The movie documents their journey as it happens as filmed by a third rider. They ride roads that 99% of us would never dream of tackling, myself included.
I can't recommend this DVD enough - it's 7 hours of amazing bike journey footage.
You can order the DVD through their web site http://www.longwayround.com/lwr.htm but keep in mind that the DVD is programmed for European DVD players. It worked on my lap top and it worked on my internat DVD player on my new LCD TV but it didn't work on my old DVD player.
Oh yeah, and it arrived in the post like 5 days after ordering from England!
