We can’t get enough of Norman Reedus on Ride with Norman Reedus. Now the Walking Dead star talks about dream destinations for his AMC show.

With the season 2 premiere of Ride with Norman Reedus upon us, it’s not surprising that star Norman Reedus has a list of dream destinations for his motorcycle travel show. The show films in January, after The Walking Dead wraps in November, so the choice of locations is guided by temperature. Sure, there are plenty of places they could film. For the sake of the safety and comfort of the cast and crew, the show films in warm locations.

Reedus notes that Ride with Norman Reedus could go on indefinitely. “There’s no shortage of places I’d like to go. I’d love to take the show overseas. People say ‘Walking Dead’ could go on forever- ‘Ride’ could go on forever. You could do 20 years of this show and not hit everywhere.”

It’s absolutely true, and fans of the BBC show Top Gear know that there are some amazing roads out there just waiting to be driven. Of course, AMC is going to be very careful with its star, but that doesn’t mean that Reedus doesn’t have a few dream destinations on his list.

His dream destinations for Ride? Tokyo, France and Russia. Reedus would love to take a ride from “Tokyo and ride all the way to Osaka or something.” He thinks going to the south of France would be “magical.” And going to Russia would be “awesome.”

While winter weather would prohibit January filming in those locations, there’s nothing saying that a special filming trip couldn’t be made in the summertime, right? Who wouldn’t want to see Norman riding through France? Someone should make that happen. Please.

Ride with Norman Reedus airs Mondays at 9pm ET on AMC.
