Ewan McGregor and Charley spotted in Nicaragua and now Guatemala

EWAN McGregor and his close friend Charley Boorman are nearing the final stretch of their latest motorcycle adventure travelling the long way up from South America to Los Angeles.

The two have been on the road now for over 90-days, riding slightly modified Harley-Davidson Livewire electric motorcycles. The general plan for this next TV show is to travel from the tip of South America to LA using nothing but electric power – and some diesel-powered support vehicles. But let’s not dwell on that!

The pair are riding adventure-spec Harley-Davidson Livewires electric motorcycles. The bikes have been specially set up to handle the undertaking, with long-travel suspension, wire-spoked wheels, bigger mudguards, dual-sport tyres, and engine casing guards.

The team’s exploits have been kept fairly hushed by the crew and the celebrities themselves, but a Jedi knight riding an electric Harley-Davidson is always going to draw some attention, with the local press and public documenting their journey for us on social media!

So far they have travelled from up through Tiera del Fuego in Southern Argentina, Guayaquil in Ecuador, Nicaragua and now in Guatemala. While the riders of the bikes haven’t been spotted – yet – the electrically powered support vehicles have been pictured on social media near the Casa de Dios Mi Casa (House of God) church in southern Guatemala. They are Rivian R1Ts, a pick-up truck revealed a year before Tesla's Cybertruck and, to our eyes, far more appealing.

The team has been on the road for over 90 days and working out an average that puts the electrically powered team at slightly less than 100-miles per day. Given the terrain that the team seems to be having to deal with, that’s actually not too bad!

The pair plan to end the trip in LA which is roughly 2,700 miles from their current location. It’ll be a push but they might make it there before the end of the year.
