McGregor spent a lot of seat time on this bike as well. This one took him all the way From Scotland to the tip of Africa in Long Way Down, the sequel to Long Way Round. After the R1150GS served him so well on his first journey, he didn’t even consider going to another manufacturer. BMW was happy to donate a couple of bikes to the cause in exchange for the free publicity. We bet the folks over at KTM are kicking themselves now.
