Long way Round and Long way down are both in Netflix. Excellent series if you haven't seen it.

Totally agree! I bet KTM is kicking themselves in the arse for not following through with the bikes.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

Maybe KTM felt their bikes wouldn't make it. Just think of the money they would would have lost if their bikes were shown to be failures.

Cycles South still on there? One of my older buddies had not heard of it. While it's not long way round or easy rider, I still enjoyed it.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

The only sumo friends (who have problems) own KTM's. Also, when we were doing the acting gig the KTM I was riding had trouble starting a couple times. KTM knew their bikes wouldn't last.

Amazing series, both of them. The only time I hated any episode was when I finished the last ones.

Oh, and the KTM not making it was my theory as well. The negative impact of the bikes failing would probably be much worse than the potential advertising.

I saw this on late night TV when I was in Ireland in 2005. I was more interested at the time for the scenery and adventure (also Obi-Wan from Star Wars), but this is definitely going to be on my list of shows to watch now. Thanks for pointing this out!

Only the frames of the bikes in Long Way Round busted but a quick weld and lightening of the load out solved their issues with that.

Marathoned LWR last night. Started LWD this morning. Shift work is good for somethings. I wish this could be on YouTube so I can watch it at work whenever I wanted.

You know he adopted one of the little girls from Mongolia that he met at the UNICEF site.

I watched long way round on YouTube. The vids may have been taken down by now.

I watch both of these two and loved them. I also didn't realize Ewan McGregor was pretty big movie star until after the fact, but he seems like a really cool guy.
