I have now been on the road for almost 5 months and about to head into Africa. Now after approximately 200 Ewan McGregor comparisons none is worse than the one I had the other day. As I pulled up to a stoplight a Ausie couple pulled up next to me on their rented scooter. The girl quickly said in her thick Ausie accent "Hey mate are you Ewan McGregor?" I looked at her in disbelief and just shook my head. She then said "Oh so you saw the movie and you are now doing riding around the world?" Again I just shook my head wishing the light would turn green, I swear this is the longest light on the planet. She then said again "Are you sure you are not Ewan?" Well normaly I dont have the urge to punch a girl in the eyeball, but as I put put my kickstand down to giver her and old one-two the light turned green and off they scootered away. Probably lucky for me since most Aussie girls would probably kick my ass.
Now Ewan I havent seen your movie so I couldnt, even if I wanted to, judge your trip. Now to be fair anyone on here would probably jump at the opportunity to get sponsored and such as you have, even if they dont admit it.
So I have only one favor to ask, next time could you maybe put a subtitle at the bottom saying something like this "I Ewan McGregor did not invent motorcycle traveling and people have been doing this since they could carry enough fuel to make it over the horizon and if you happen to come across one of the overlanders please do not ask them if are doing this because they saw my movie."
Thanks for considering my recomondation.
P.S. If you do a second movie and need some to oh say carry your bags or drive your support vehicle give me a shout
One thing Ewan and Charlie "half-man-half-bike" would never do is the route you're about to do & trust me, I'm sure no-one where you're going has any idea who the f*** they are (as long as you don't mention Star Wars)
In any case, I'm still glad that I did a trip before they did theirs.
It's not easy always being mistaken for movie stars. Jean and I bought some new suits and now people think we are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. http://www.bobsbmw.com/News.html
Scroll down the page a bit.
Been getting a lot of " what just like Ewan and Charlie" recently as me an Rick get ready for the off, and we're going to Africa. On a possitive note the general pond life that make's up the majority of the population of merry England do at least seem more aware of motorcycles, though they still try to kill me on a regular basis...........or am I just being paranoid.
