World's First Motorcycle VLogger

This Saturday gone by Mordeth13 spent most of the day with Charley Boorman who is best known for his trip around the world on a BMW bike with Ewan Mc Gregor. He’s a true motorcyclist and I have a lot of respect for him as a rider. He also tried to include me with everything he did that day….which was very nice of him. Claudio spent a lot of time talking with me and invited me back to their hotel that night. We sat around in a lounge up on the 19th floor of a very expensive hotel and just  chatted for a couple of hours, Mr Boorman was there as well. They have a new cameraman named Robin. According to Claudio he’s supposed to be some kind of prodigy, some kind of boy wonder….hmmm Robin? Boy wonder? Hmmm. Robin was also very cool. There producer Sam Simon was understandably busy, but he still made time to chat with me and listen to any and all ideas I had. He even got excited a couple of times and would grab a camera and join in on the fun of filming…which I was told wasn’t normal for him.

I had planned a great day for Mr Boorman, but right off the bat we had police, a blown engine, and a <wait for series> …….sigh…..at least the weather was good. And although I felt it was a terrible start they said it made for interesting footage…..so I guess it wasn’t all bad.

I also got to ride with Mr Boorman on the race track. He impressed me a lot with his skill. He was on a bike he’d never ridden before….on a track that would easily be the worst he’s ever been on. And he flew around it quicker than most of the locals.

Check out their Twitter updates. You can see some cool pics of their new series as it progresses “By Any Means 2” and while you are waiting for that to come out you can get caught up on their past series which are:

Long Way Around – 2004 (television series, book and DVD)                                 Race to Dakar – 2006 Long Way Down – 2007

By Any Means – 2008                                                                     By Any Means 2 – 2009    (with M13)

Outside of racing and stunting Boorman is establishing himself as one of the most well known motorcyclists and adventurers on the planet. Nothing wrong with that   🙂     .
