JMB711 Crackin funny!!

Monday morning quarterbacks

Watched and bought both series movies and watch episodes more than once in a while just for the humor of it so naturally I found this blurb humorous.

I fear some , SOME , ADV characters take themselves too serious. Never had that problem with these two mates who have found a friendship that most who

criticize them actually should be so lucky.

I've gone long way "round " the USA with a friend it we both were glad to get back home have hanging out together for a month on motorbikes and camping in hotels and tents for 30 days. It will try the patience of anyone our age. Finished up with writing new screenplays for grumpy old men and we didn't endure any where near the hardships of the epic adventures of Euwen and Charlie.

It takes equipment to produce the level of photography used in these productions so good luck with your go pros and helmet cams making two epic movie series that hold your attention for endless hours of travel logs.

Bravo to Long Way Down , Long way 'Round , and this pitiful satire was funny . Won't read much into that ,, what .... LOL

Sundodger Here's another idea for the bikes they will ride - Ewan McGregor has recently signed up to promote the Moto Guzzi V85TT. Don't shoot me, I wouldn't either but its a distinct possibility.

Undoubtedly Long Way Round got me and thousands back on to bikes, specifically ADV ones but the second series was lacking. Well, at least better than that crap a few years ago "A Story Worth Living".

I hope they keep it simple, several cameras each and go! Imagine it will be hard to go unnoticed by the ADV community if they have a large support crew in tow.

Charlie makes bad choice decisions ...

i.e. Long Way Around he pimped KTM who ended up pulling their sponsorship weeks from the bon voyage. That is when BMW Motorrad grabbed the mantle and kicked ass. Whatever Charlie wants go to the alternative.

"Long Way Up"

Looks official.

Hoping BMW provides the bikes again.
