IT’S THE threequel that everyone has been waiting for, the ultimate adventure duo reunited and taking on the world once more.
And it could be about to become a reality.
Charley Boorman has hinted at a third instalment to the hugely popular ‘Long Way Round’ and ‘Long Way Down’ series, with an Instagram post showing himself and Ewan McGregor alongside directors/producers Russ Malkin and David Alexanian.
The photos, which were taken at the premiere of McGregor’s latest film Christopher Robin, are captioned: “Thanks Ewan for a fantastic night. Great movie Christopher Robin. Nice to get us together. Can’t wait for #longwayup.”
Does that mean plans are already in the pipeline? Or are we reading too much into what is but a joke by Boorman?
Fans seem pretty keen, with hundred of excited comments pleading for the trip to be made.
But where would the trip take the intrepid duo? Up from the bottom of South America perhaps, or into the Arctic Circle?
And then there's the matter of the motorcycles. In Long Way Round McGregor and Boorman rode R1150GS models, and they used its successor - the R1200GS - for the Long Way Down. But now Boorman is an ambassador for Triumph, could we see a pair of Tigers take on the televised trip?
Here at Visordown, we seriously hope Long Way Up will happen. Because after all, what goes down must come up, right?
