Charley Boorman reveals Long Way Up with Ewan McGregor

It’s well established that some of the best experiences in life can be had traveling with a friend over new landscapes on, or in, awesome machinery.

The Long Way Round and Long Way Down film series by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman encapsulates all of the above so perfectly. When Long Way Round was first released in 2004 it sparked the imaginations of not just enthusiasts but the general public as well.

Now, 15 years later, Boorman announces there will be a new film called the Long Way Up, evidently making tracks through the Americas, with the trip seemingly ending in LA but with a few surprises along the way.

No word yet on what bikes will be used but it would be hard to go past a BMW GS.

Hopefully, it’s as epic as the others!

If you want a reminder of how awesome the first two were, watch them all from the beginning…

At Privateer Garage we love products with great design, and experiences that are memorable and bring together the tactile nature of print through books and other media, an appreciation for photography, a nod to heritage and style inspired by classic pieces, and travel stories which feed the bug.

All of this is bound together by our love of the automobile.
