new biker book

A friend just dropped off his copy of Long Way Round, Chasing Shadows Across the World, by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman: supposed to be a good read about two chaps running round the world on their bmw sport bikes.
Anyone read it?

I watched a few of the episodes on the boob tube... I'd be interested to know how the book is.

I haven't read it but I definitely want to. I missed every episode when it aired on Bravo.

I read it just last month and thoroughly enjoyed it. I missed the TV stuff though.
They got a lot of stick from the press this side of the pond, the usual critical stuff. If I had their money... It was hardly an arduous expedition with a full back up crew... self indulgent crap etc etc etc.
At the end of the day they done it and hats off to them! Even with a support team it cannot be easy riding from London east all the way back to London.
