I watched "Long Way Round" and its sequel "Long Way Down." Not too long ago. Great series. Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman are two great guys. Best road trip ever.

Buy the set. I have both and can watch them multiple times a year. Boorman's "Race 2 Dakar" is also good.

There is also an earlier one from the 90's called "MotoEnduro". It was a group of 6 or 8 British guys riding around the world.

Another one I recommend is "Why They Ride". Its about two brothers who make a documentary about their trip from Indianappolis to Deals Gap. Its Pretty good. I'm without a bike right now so I usually watch it once a month or more to get my fix.

Netflicks has been great, we finish one video and order the next one...it shows up the next day....we got the last DVD today in the mail.

Next in the cue is Long way down.

Tell you what KTM up by backing out last minuet. I am very impressed with those BMWs....they really take a kicking, are abused and loaded down way too much and still perform (even though the frames break...the are easily fixed). BMW
