Long Way Down

After circumnavigating the world on their epic journey Long Way Round, actors, adventurers and pals Ewan McGregor (Star Wars, Angels & Demons, Amelia, The Island, Moulin Rouge) and Charley Boorman (Emerald Forest, By Any Means, Race to Dakar) began another great motorcycle expedition, Long Way Down.

Their new challenge took them on a 15,000-mile trek from the northernmost tip of Scotland, down to the southernmost tip of Africa. Riding through Western Europe and Eastern Africa, Ewan and Charley mixed their love of motorbikes with the irresistible lure of far-flung roads on the ultimate expedition, experiencing some of the most incredible natural and cultural wonders the world has to offer.

Photographic Exhibit

This collection was exclusively created for and unveiled at the 2008 Legend of the Motorcycle Concours d'Elegance near San Francisco, California, (an event at which both Ewan and Charley had been guest presenters) a full three months before the Long Way Down was officially released on TV, video or film.

With photographs generously provided by the producers of Long Way Down, the exhibit was curated by renowned celebrity photographer Timothy White and was featured with Charley's actual BMW R1200 GS motorcycle, shipped over from Britain especially for the display.

After the debut at Legend of the Motorcycle, the exhibit was displayed at the 2008 Laguna Seca Moto GP race, and then the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

This exclusive and professionally created exhibit has been viewed by millions of enthusiasts from around the world and is now being offered for sale with profits from the sale to be donated to UNICEF, a charity for which Ewan and Charley are both ambassadors.
