Now McGregor wants to do it all again - he's planning more adventures for this summer (10) after a family vacation with his wife, Eve Mavrakis, and their children.

He says, "I've done a lot of hard work recently and I admit that after a burst of intense creativity I've got a bit of wanderlust. I've still got the bike and it's now got a sidecar on it, so I'll take my dog Sid along with me this time.

"I want to have our summer holidays as a family and then I'd like to get going. It would be a fantastic thing to do. It'll be good to get my leathers and my goggles on again."
