Tonight’s screening? Ewan & Charlie climb on electric bikes for “Long Way Up”

I loved “The Long Way Round,” and “The Long Way Down,” two epic motorcycle road trips undertaken by actor pals Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman (son of the great director John “Deliverance” Boorman).

It’s been 13 years since the second trip, and now the lads have gone green and are riding from Tierra Del Fuego to LA on electric Harley Davidsons.

The pansies should go to Point Barrow, Alaska, but don’t tell them that.

I’m a bicycle not a motorcycle guy, but I can’t miss this Apple + TV (Sept 17) series (10 parts) because I’ve missed Ewan saying “Charlie Booooooooorman.”

McGregor and I talked about the series the last time I interviewed him, and he didn’t think they’d be nimble and unfettered enough to do another, due to their advancing years and obligations.

Damned glad they did.
