McGREGOR'S CHILDHOOD SWEETHEART INSPIRED BIKE TOURScottish actor EWAN McGREGOR's epic motorbike world tour was inspired by his childhood sweetheart, who left him for a biker. The STAR WARS actor recently travelled from London to New York with his friend CHARLIE BOORMAN, but he insists the trek would never have happened if his "kissing partner" hadn't broken his heart when he was just 13-years-old.He explains, "It was my first girlfriend who got me into bikes - in a roundabout way. She was petite, with a smile that was as wicked as her character and I was mad about her. "But she stopped being my kissing partner when she met another boy who had a flashy bike. And now, I miss it like hell if I don't get to ride every day."
