Motorbike London is the story of actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman planning a trip around the world. They’ve been friends since they met on the set of The Serpent’s Kiss in 1997 and have shared a love for motorbikes ever since.
The premise is pretty simple but the story of their journey has many different levels and is full of adversity, adventure and the rediscovery of life. They encounter everything from the ruins of Chernobyl, children living under the streets to simple working class families.
It is also an amazing journey of friendship and how the two men grow with each other through adversity as they experience life on a different continent. There is a lot of laughter and fun and it is a very good show for the whole family.
A good road trip movie – I can recommend this one for anyone who enjoys travelling and seeing the world on a motorbike. It’s a very moving film with a really nice soundtrack by Kelly Jones.
If you’re going to ride in Motorbike London on your bike, it’s important to be safe and take the necessary steps to make sure you’re protected while out on the roads. This can be done by following some of the tips below or taking a motorcycle training course.
Helmets are a must to keep yourself and others safe whilst you’re on the roads, so make sure you have one before you head out. You’ll find information on sizing and ratings of helmets at SHARP (the official governing body for helmets in the UK).
When you first start riding, it’s always a good idea to take a bike training course. This will help you develop the skills required to ride safely on the road and increase your confidence. You will learn how to spot hazards on the road and how to avoid collisions with other vehicles.
Before you can ride your bike in the UK, you will need to get a bike license. There are several types of licences ranging from a CBT certificate that allows you to ride 49cc mopeds restricted to 28mph with no passengers or on motorways, to a Full Motorcycle cat A license that allows you to ride all kinds of motorcycles.
You can get a bike licence by passing a theory test and a practical test. There are a number of test centres that offer both tests, but you should ensure you have the right level of knowledge before attempting them.
There are also some courses that can improve your biking ability and help you become a safer and more confident rider, such as the BikeSafe-London Rider Skills Day run in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service. These courses include an observation ride on urban and rural roads, along with advice from a police motorcyclist.
Keeping your head on a swivel is essential in London with so many road users trying to reach their destination in such a hectic way. Staying alert for people looking to cross the road or a Prius with its hazards on dropping off revellers will keep you safe and help prevent an accident.
