Ewan McGregor: I ran out of “juice” a couple of times #LongWayUp
Ewan McGregor on riding from Ushuaia to Los Angeles on Harley-Davidson LiveWire
Ewan McGregor was invited at Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show. And one of the topics was the “Long Way Up” - the upcoming film made by him and Charlie Boorman, a trip that created some controversy among the hardcore adventure riders.
Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman rode two Harley-Davidson LiverWire (electric motorcycles), and, obviously, the main issue was charging the bikes. We’re talking about Patagonia, not California. I recently been there in our “GoSouth - The Patagonia Ride (our film is coming soon, too)”, and I can tell that there are no charging stations. More than that, on Argentina’s Ruta 40 you should also be careful with the gas.
How they did it? “We camped in the garden, and we plugged-in. And when there’s two bikes charging at the same time, sometimes you could blow the fuses, which could be embarrassing”, says Ewan at the Tonight Show.
More than that, he admits that he ran out of power for a couple of times. More details, in the video below.
No details about the “Long Way Up” release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
