Charley Boorman has just announced he will be at the Sydney Motorcycle and Scooter Show in November.
The star of ‘Long Way Round’, ‘Long Way Down’, ‘Race To Dakar’ and ‘By Any Means’ had announced last month that he would be bringing his live stage tour to Perth on November 1 and promised more Australian dates, but they have not yet been announced.
However, he will be a special guest at the Sydney show on November 15-17.
Charley has been touring the world with his stage show featuring videos, interviews and motorcycle stunts. It’s like a two-wheeled version of the Top Gear shows.
MC for the night is Charley’s close friend, Bill Ward, a laugh-a-minute Liverpudlian wag.
He put together the professional show which has now travelled through the UK, South Africa and Afghanistan for the troops.
Charley and Billy will also return next year for outback and Tasmanian tours with Compass Expeditions after their successful inaugural tours earlier this year.
Charley also hopes to do tours in South America and to compete in the Baja 1000 desert race through Mexico.
“I’d love to have a four-man team to tackle the Baja so we don’t have to do the whole thing. I’d like to take Chris (Vermeulen) and Simon (Pavey),” he told me.
