This film is about a guy from Devon, UK called Ed March. Supposedly saved from the regional pastime sheep-shagging by a love of tinkering with motorbikes in his shed.
He ships his beloved Honda C90 halfway across the world to Malaysia and then spends 8 months and 14500 miles riding it home.
While in Thailand he actually tries to register a marriage with his C90, I shit you not.
Let's face it, for a RTW-trip it's a rubbish bike, some of the footage is from a mobile phone, Ed obviously has mental issues and he has a propensity for gratuitous nudity and he has a really immature sense of humour.
He also nurtures an intense hatred for big BMW motorcycles and accessories you can't build yourself (which means he would probably either be steaming or pissing himself with laughter if he ever saw my bike).
It's pretty much the exact polar opposite of Long Way Round/Down.
I loved every second of it.
This is not for the faint of heart as he films himself having diarrhea (thankfully only audio) and a dozen people shitting in a field (in glorious high definition).
Apart from crossing the world on a ridiculously underpowered bike which at one point runs for three stright days with no oil he also takes the time to trek to Mount Everest basecamp and true to form he does that in skate shoes and in far less time than is supposedly safe considering altitude sickness.
Despite the differences in footage quality this is a really solid production which is well put together and with great music (well, perhaps apart from the frequent ABBA-snippets, I'm not that Swedish).
I've definitely never laughed so much watching a travel documentary before and if you watch this and think it's shit then I'm sorry but then we can't be friends.

P.S. Ed has since embarked on another journey, this time from Alaska to Argentina and he has made that into a series on youtube so check out his channel.
