Into The Amazon (6 of 11)

Into The Amazon (6 of 11)

Written by: Jeff McMahan Clocked in over 300k yesterday. Our valiant Lifan 125cc engine performs fantastically on the straights, but is complete rubbish on the inclines. When we finally got to the point that Travis had to get out and push as I worked the throttle, we knew we had entered serious terrain. ...

Written by: Jeff McMahan In Day two of the junket I woke up to find myself sleeping next to Dave from Team Plan-F. Six teams entered Chulucanas late  the prior afternoon and holed up in the Hotel Star Plaza. We set off like a herd of turtles at 8:30 am sharp. We meandered down to El Cruce where Team SBS made ...

Enter the Mototaxi Junket (1 of 11)

Written by: Jeff McMahan Hurricane Irene spared me her misery. While shutting down the Tri-State airports for 36 hours, I encountered no glitches departing from Newark on Tuesday. Met Travis in Houston and continued on to Lima. As luck would have it, we met Matthew from the team Pisco Sour Project on the ...
