They keep returning like a terrible nightmare. :ricky:

At least this time they're on something slightly better suited to adventure riding.

I think this is a bloody good move from Ewan & Charley, their production team and especially Harley Davidson.

We all know that Harley Davidson is in deep trouble for the simple reason that their average age of buyer is just under 100.


I think HD has also missed the bus a little, compared to BMW back in Long Way Round times.

When that aired, no one had ever heard of Charlie, but Ewan was still fresh in everyone's minds from Moulin Rouge, Star Wars I & II, The Island, Trainspotting wasn't that long ago. All the coming of age youngsters where inspired - I was one of them, went out and bought an F650GS. (All I could afford on a starting out salary)

Now years later, the only people who have heard of Charlie are people who watched long Way Round/Down, and Ewan is no longer a name youngsters know.

The people who will watch the first trips have already bought their 1200GSs, and anyone who didn't see previous trips, and who still is vaguely interested in Ewan (or Charlie) will be close to 100, so the average age of Harley buyers not likely to drop too much.

Look at the bright side, if KTM sponsered the 2 dudes from time immemorial, they would not have to be so innovative to krap back lost ground??

You would've had kark KTM's....

So now we only sit with crap GS's and innovative KTM's?

Be effing glad boys!!

Ewan has more money than everyone on this forum combined , I would say that money has little to do with what motivates him.

I like the story of him on the 'Star Wars' set of 'Phantom Menace'.

He was in the process of buying a custom Ducati (...or something...) so every other week he went to ask for some money to transfer to the guys building the bike. He got called into the office one day to see George Lucas sitting with Steven Spielberg. George asked him about the money he keeps transferring and Ewan immediately though he was in kak.

Turns out George wasn't pissed, he asked how much the bike was going to cost and then told Ewan they wanted to buy the bike for him. That must be pretty sweet.

Ewan is a bike nut. Charley too. I wish them all the best and will watch the show.
