Tackling Everyday Obstacles with Brute Force

The Darien Gap is dominated by mountainous rain forests on the Panamanian side and the Atrato River delta on the Colombian side. The full length of the Gap would be wet and cavernous. Both do not make ideal conditions to take a motorcycle through.

Once we entered the the Darien Gap, we quickly realized how much wear the mud was putting on the clutches and engines. Knowing that this wasn’t a quick day ride, we tackled every obstacle as methodically as possible to make sure we succeeded in making it through to Colombia. The video below is an example of the Trouble we tackled everyday in Darien. Sometimes with brute force.
