For those that don't already know, both titles are now available on Netflix ( streaming ).
I've got both movies. Definitely the best motorcycle movies I've ever seen. I'm about half way through the LWD book and I like it. There's a far bit of commentary thats not in the movie. However, both of these guys are actors who clearly lead a, um, different life style than most of us, so you have to get past that part.Looks like I'm way behind the times as usual. I'm gathering these are motorcycle expedition books and movies and good ones. True?
If so, what's recommended - books or movies - or both?
I'm interested either way.
maybe so... Was it made for a TV series or was it a "hey lets go on a ride and film it" type thing? Sponsors?It was Charlie, Ewan and their camera man on a third bike. The support vehicles met up at borders and occasionally to collect the footage. I remember a second hand conversation with one of the producers who said that if the support vehicles were not there, the ride would have been the same, but they could not have done anywhere near as much filming (and hence get a good quality series), and it probably would have been harder to get through the borders.
Or Two Wheels Through Terror by Glen HeggstadI much preferred the book "The Road Gets Better From Here" by Adrian Scott. No experience and no back up truck on, IIRC, a "lowly" KLR650.
