Seems Triumph invited Charley to the launch of the Explorer in Portugal this last week, he had a little coming together with a car and broke his leg and ankle, doctors at Portimao put him together again and he came back by air ambulance. Oops! get well soon.

Think Triumph have missed the boat if they are expecting him to do what he and the other bloke did for BMW in 2004

Some actor called Ewan McGregor. ;) (Star wars etc) And I think that at the time Ewan did more for BMW than Charley. Mainly because of his fame. Watched LWR and LWD about a million times. It's what got me into adventure bikes. (And it triggered me to get my license, buy an XJ600, test drive a 1200 GS, trade the XJ for a Transalp and then trade the Transalp for the Tiger. Oh, and purchase another Transalp as a side project.) ;)

Hope he gets well soon.
