The bike, ridden by the actor while filming the critically acclaimed documentary, Long Way Round, will be the centre-piece of the ‘Adventurers’ exhibition at the musuem.
McGregor, along with his friend and Hollywood director Charley Boorman, travelled 35,960 km through 18 countries on two BMW R 1150 GS motorcycles for the 2004 documentary, ‘Long Way Round’, and 30,896 km on R 1200 GS bikes for the 2007 documentary ‘Long Way Down’. The bike will be the focal point of the exhibition when the museum opens on March 10.
Apart from McGregor’s motorcycle, the adventure section will also display Scottish cyclist Mark Beaumont’s bicycle which completed a 20,921 km journey from Alaska to Argentina in 2010.

Vespa have unveiled their new prototype offering for the global market. Well, before you get down to assumptions regarding an all new scooter from the Italians, guess what, you are certainly in for a surprise!
Vespa, in association with acclaimed industrial design gurus Rotimi Solola and Cait Miklasz have unveiled the all-new Vespa Camera Prototype. In simple words, it is a full functional camera which is themed on Vespa scooters.
Now, with an idea as cool as this, we expect the Vespa Camera to go into production very soon as has been the case with other two-wheel manufacturer merchandise like those of KTM, Ducati and BMW. All said and done, the Vespa Camera will not be a bad option for those who want to indulge in some Italian flair.
We know that though there may only be a few people who will shell out big bucks for essentially a camera bearing the Vespa badge, it is one of those definitely sweet concepts.
