The new series will follow Ewan and Charley as they ride Harley-Davidson LiveWire electric motorcycles through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Central America, and Mexico up to Los Angeles. Also joining them are their longtime collaborators, directors David Alexanian and Russ Malkin, following them in their electric Rivian trucks. The whole journey covers 13,000 miles over 100 days through 16 border crossings and 13 countries.

So far, details about their trip have been scarce but McGregor revealed, in an interview with Jimmy Fallon, some of the challenges they faced riding electric bikes.

“It proved to be amazing, and quite tricky at the same time,” he said of charging the e-bikes along the way. And while they could sometimes charge the bikes at hotels, and restaurants during lunch stops, many times they had to rely on the generosity of locals, knocking on doors and asking to use an outlet.
