I would like to see how the scrambler dealt with 12 month of that sort of riding. Anybody fancy a trip from John O'Groats to Cape town on a scrambler for research reasons?

If we can get sponsorship and a couple of B grade actors to tag along it could be a goer!

I can't, I'm busy taking my bike with a pannier full of perfume through Brazil.......

Has everyone seen Ewan in the Davidoff: Adventure ad?
Yes its a perfume ad.....and he's trying to justify why he should take the perfume along as part of teh essence of adventure

I haven't minded the Long Way Round/Down too much, but this is ridiculous.

Nice bike and roads though......but better with the sound DOWN

For some reason wanting to smell like Ewan McGregor after his ridden across South America on a Bonne, doesn't really appeal to me!

See previous posts for unsolicited commentary on the "smell of adventure".

Ya gotta wonder why they chose that bike. Idjots. Oh well, at least it's a Triumph.

Come on guys, this is Ewan McGregor... adventure rider!!, thats not just a bottle of after-shave Davidoff Adventure could kill a mosquito on contact, or if needed it could be used to power the Bonne for another 30 miles!

every adventure rider should buy a bottle!

Talking ewan fangirls

the replies to the video by his fangirls make me feel dirty...

Why do women like him?

Its got to be the motorcycle, what else could it be?

Someone need to tell him to stop huffing the cologne, and next time use a Scrambler not a Bonnie.

Maybe he whips the cologne out, takes a swig, heroically shoves the Bonnie over the last 10 boulders, and continues on his way through the trackless jungle with knife in teeth etc.

Honestly though, I like Ewan. He goes out into the world and does real things, like ride motorcycles. He is not like the F'd up movie stars we have here in the states...
