moped to south america

youtube

These dudes rode from San Francisco to the southernmost tip of South America on mopeds. Unfortunately the full documentary they made is M.I.A., leaving us only a couple of trailers to watch, this being the better of the two. As you can see, the limitations of traveling long distances on mopeds (speed, comfort) is far outweighed by the apparent fun and inherent adventure (speed, lack of comfort), coupled with the ability to pedal your ass down the road or hold on to a truck if the bike gives up the ghost. I just wish we could watch the whole thing. Thanks to Jake Bagshaw for the tip!
