Ewan McGregor's Motorcycle Madness is Over!

Ewan McGregor's Motorcycle Madness is Over!

Ewan McGregor and actor pal Charley Boorman congratulate each other on Saturday after completing a 15,000-mile motorcycle journey together from John O’Groats Scotland to Cape Town, South Africa.

The best buddies arrived at the end of their Long Way Down trip, which took them three months to complete and took them through 18 countries on two continents. Their journey was all videotaped and will be made into a UK TV series. In 2004, they conducted a similar trip, called Long Way Round which saw them travel from London to New York.

Ewan said at the end of road, “The Long Way Down has been an amazing journey and it has been a real privilege to be able to experience these diverse and beautiful places. We’ve had the opportunity to see such different ways of life to ours and have traveled to remote places very few people have access to.”

Now go back home to your wife and kids!!! More pics inside…

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    That’s so cool and something I’d like to do as well. A friend of mine rode his bicycle (!!!) from northern Germany to Marokko.
    That’s too hardcore for me though.

  • Besane

    Indeed JJ, daddy needs to go home. Doesn’t he have two daughters and another adopted Tibetan, or Mongolian baby? Three months is a lifetime for the kids, Ewan! Or maybe they got air-lifted to join papa from time to time? :)

  • just saying

    Ewan’s hair is HILARIOUS!!

  • Dirty Cougar

    Ewan HOTNESS!

  • Pole

    I love him! I also love that Eve joined him for a while on this trip – if she’s fine with him doing this, I doubt it’s a problem. I guess his kids are used to him not being around for long periods.

  • lucy

    ewan is just so impossibly handsome. Just love him and glad that he’s back safe :) :)

  • Adrienne

    Aw, yay! They’re awesome. Love Ewan.

  • Hobbit

    I’m so happy to see Charley and Ewan safely at journey’s end!! Been watching the vid clips over at the Long Way Down website…it was so cool to see Ewan’s wife, Eve, join him on the trip…..can’t wait to get the dvd and book!

  • just visiting

    Thanks for the Ewan update! He’s an awesome actor and such a genuinely nice man. I’ve loved him since Shallow Grave. So nice to hear about one of the “good guys” every once in a while!

  • Lizzie

    Ach – here is my absolute weakness. Ewan McGregor would be all I could wish for. I’m so glad he has love and life with Eve and the girls…I wish I could find a man half his measure. I found one who looked like him, but didn’t have the same ebullience.

    Great photos, great smile, cool trip.

  • natalie

    ah! i want to go on a trip like this!

    also, ewan mcgregor is too attractive already to be doing things like this and making him even hotter.

  • Cynthia

    Gee did he leave his miracle bloomers home?

  • Serena

    I LOVE Ewan. So handsome and talented. And it’s fantastic he’s a UNICEF ambassador. Last time he and Charley raised so much money for them from sales of their Long Way Round book, DVD and auctions.

  • wall

    Isn’t Cape Town just gorgeous! That’s Table Mountain in the background.

  • remember da truth

    Thanks JJ! MORE EWAN!!

    This was a great idea, great trip. So cool of him to be exploring like this. Wonder if he watched or read Motorcycle Diaries before his trip?

  • spooky

    What the heck is up with that hairdo? At first I thoought the wind was blowing it around……..then I saw that no one else’s hair is wind blown

  • Lucy

    Lol when I heard they were coming here on the motorbikes all the way from scotland the first thing I thought was how they were going to get through those countries going through cival wars but he actually made it… they even had like this welcome party for them incase they came past didn’t work out =) i only saw them when they were like a km away from my house Lol.

  • ashby

    Great for them but.. a female actor could never do this…Go away from her little kids for that long a time? She would be crucified. Well…maybe it depends on who the actress is. Still, I think there would be a lot of complaining and judging if it was a female.

  • Sydney

    Aw,that’s too bad.
    Now they don’t have anything to do! lol
    Anyways,now it’s over I can watch it on T.V. in November! YAY!
    I LOVE Ewan!
    Hope he had a great time! ;)

  • Lori

    Oh man! I love ewan and charlie on their bikes. I was lucky enough to watch their first season,the long way round. I was glued to the tv and it was showing all day long. CAn’t for this season to come out.

  • Sydney

    OMG I never see a man as sexy as Ewan, he’s hot in everything he do, he’s so f***ing great, I talk to him in Cannes in 2003 and I saw his brother, Colin once, they’re both gorgeous and so friendly, I couldn’t believe that somebody who’s done star wars could be so close to people…
