Am I the only one who missed this 2004 documentary? I found it on Netflix while surfing around and love it! Ewan and Charley Boorman going from London to New York City on BMWs by way of France, Germany, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia, Canada, and a few other places. I claimed a headache so I could sit and watch the whole 9 episodes in two days.
They've made UNICEF my new favorite charity after seeing some of the work the organization is trying to do in places like Mongolia.
I'm a motorcyclist at heart. It was the first vehicle I wanted and the first one I bought. However, I think anyone would love watching these guy and their crew on one funny, scary, magnificent adventure. Now I've found they did another documentary called The Long Way Round. How do I miss these things? The British are hiding the good stuff from us. I hope Netflix has it streaming. I may have to get another headache.
I've not had a motorcycle since I was in my twenties. After watching this, I am seriously thinking about getting one again. I won't be trekking through Mongolia, but would like to see some of the Alaskan wilderness and Montana and, well, if Mongolia gets actual roads, who knows.
