'I love it - East, West, North, South - I don't care, just get me there!'

Career highlight: My career highlight was definitely crawling down a loo in Glasgow while filming 'Trainspotting.'

First bike: Honda 100 4 Stroke

Greatest Long Way Round moment: Not being killed when I was rear-ended in a crash on a Canadian tarmac highway after getting all the way from London to Canada without a road accident.

Greatest biking music: 'Mr. Writer' by the Stereophonics

Ambition for Long Way Down: to get to Cape Town alive to celebrate getting all the way from John O'Groats to Cape Agulhas on our BMWs.

What kind of traveller? I love it - East, West, North, South - I don't care, just get me there!

See below for the comments left for Ewan during the trip.

    Have a Great Adventure!

    I treasure my copy of Long Way Round you signed in the autograph line of Guys and Dolls. I bought 4 more copies to have to loan out! LWR was a thrilling adventure - I hope you and Charley have a great LWD!

    Watch out for the bad roads and very smelly toilets in Africa. Take care of one another and have a wonderful new adventure.

    Durability

    Don't let any old oik do any welding on the bikes, eh? Hopefully should be less physical as the 1200 is lots, lots lighter.
