It's all about the adventure; the people, the scenery and the ride getting there and back.

And Ewan had shown the bikes can be fairly resistant to crashes. One of these days he's going to kick my ass if I don't leave that alone. It just goes to show that even celebrities can have bad riding days - or two - or three - or... Damn... got to leave that alone. Would have loved to see the unedited version.


I agree, the people you meet make the trip.

I met a couple of guys from Germany in the Yukon while riding to Alaska, I still keep in touch with one of them.
They had shipped their bikes to Chile and rode up to Alaska, they were on their way to Vancouver to ship their bikes back home.

I thought Ewan and Charlie did pretty well, the camera guy,Claudio, on the other hand is another story altogether.
