“Long Way Up”, a much-awaited documentary of Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman riding two Harley Davidson LiveWires from Ushuaia to California, is said to be aired on Apple TV. According to Vulture, Apple TV+ has acquired rights to stream Long Way Up, and although the airing date is yet to be announced, it’s confirmed that this is where fans will be able to watch the documentary. The ADV Rider community seems to have spotted the news, too:
“Long Way Up” will follow “Long Way Round”, Ewan and Charley’s journey from the UK to New York via Magadan, and “Long Way Down”, the duo’s trip from London to Cape Town. On both “Long Way Round” and “Long Way Down”, Ewan and Charley rode BMW GS1200 motorcycles. For their South America trip, however, they chose the Harley Davidson Live Wires, causing massive debates in the ADV community.
The LiveWire is Harley’s first electric motorcycle with a range of 146 miles and an 80% charge in 40 minutes or 100% charge in an hour. At a price point of $29,799, it seems like a risky investment, yet Ewan and Charley took those bikes all across South and Central America before arriving in LA. Both admitted they often had to charge the bikes at the homes of locals, but the duo made it to the US safe and sound accompanied by two Rivian R1T trucks and two gas-powered vehicles.
The “Long Way Up” documentary will be the third and likely the last installment in the LRW series by Ewan and Charley, unless the pair intends to repeat the original round-the-world journey or perhaps, explore Asia or Australia. In the meantime, fans await the release date for Long Way Up.
