He’s been round the world, and down the world and now he’s come back up again. We are, of course, talking about today’s guest, Charley Boorman. Since 2004 Boorman and his buddy Ewan McGregor have made a habit of travelling the globe on the back of a motorbike.

Their latest, Long Way Up, which sees them ride from the tip of South America to Los Angeles is their most ambitious yet — not because of the journey itself, but because they’re doing it on electric Harley Davidsons. We talk to Charley about the challenges of finding a charge, riding while recovering from serious surgery, and what it’s like to be one of Bremont’s longest-serving ambassadors.
