Regulatory roadblocks are holding back Colombia’s tech and transportation industries

Daniel Rodriguez Contributor Share on Twitter Daniel Rodriguez is CEO and co-founder of Picap, which has raised more than $7 million of venture capital for its mobility platform, which operates across eight Latin American countries. “You know we don’t drive down that road,” my father said.

Super Duper Ténéré: A Yamaha XTZ 750 from Colombia

There was a subtle takeaway from this year’s EICMA show: adventure motorcycles are more popular than ever. As well as the regular slew of new model upgrades, we saw a hefty dose of nostalgia in concepts like the Husqvarna Norden 901 and Scrambler Ducati Desert X. While modern dual-sports have become angular and over-designed, those two designs hark back to icons like the original Honda Africa Twin, Cagiva Elefant and Yamaha Ténéré. Older bikes that we love, because they remind us of simpler a...

Cities that are banning cars

According to the US Census Bureau, about 80 percent of Americans now live in urban areas. Globally, that number is 54 percent and on the rise. City centers are more clogged than ever. Inrix, which releases an annual Global Traffic Scorecard, found that traffic congestion costs the average American more than $1,300 per year — along with 97 hours of their time. Many cities, including London, San Diego, and Brussels, have implemented congestion tolls of varying forms and with varying degrees of su...

ROUGH AND READY. Pasquale’s ‘111’ Honda CB500 Cafe Brat

Written by Andrew Jones “Gustavo from Pasquale and his dad are fucking legends. Just the absolute best.” That’s how our man Marlon Slack described the family powerhouse that is Colombia’s Pasquale Motors, and he’s harder to impress than a hangry Vladimir Putin. We don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that the whole custom scene in Colombia looks to them for inspiration and guidance, and boy are they the right guys for the job. Asked to build a patinaed CB500 for Colombian KTM Dakar racer S...

A tall and tough Honda XR400 by Ace Customs that took third place Written by Marlon Slack I’ve got so many stories about my time in Colombia. Some of it will have to wait until the statute of limitations passes. Some of it is a blur. I was crippled by soroche, struck down by the flu and found myself in the middle of Colombia’s national holiday. A holiday that had missile-launcher-toting soldiers on DR650’s patrolling the streets. A lot of it feels like a fevered dream. But I’m here to talk abo...

BLISS ARMY KNIFE. Pasquale Motor’s ‘Gladius’ BMW R1150R

Written by Andrew Jones While the Roman Army had many technological tricks up their woollen tunic sleeves, when push came to shove it was their good, old-fashioned sword – or ‘gladius’ – that did most of their soldier’s dirty work. After the javelins had disrupted enemy formations and the shields had pushed them onto the back foot, it was this brutal double-edged hunk of steel that would deal the final blow. Of course, a Roman soldier’s sword was a lot more than just a killing tool. Whether i...

Bugatti Chiron 0-400 km/h Run by Juan Pablo Montoya

Remember Montoya, the young Colombian talent of Formula One in the early 2000s who abandoned the challenging life of F1 for a cozier IndyCar career in America? Well, he’s back in Europe, but not for racing. He was tapped to do a 0-400 km/h sprint test in the Bugatti Chiron, because apparently an average Joe doing it would have been too dull.   To be honest though, Bugatti Chiron seems to easy to drive, my 90-year-old grandma probably could have done this without breaking a sweat. The ex-F1 h...

Crossing the uncrossable: A tally of those who’ve driven the Darien Gap

Image via Google Maps. Driving around the world ain’t easy. Visas, funding, language barriers, supply management, and keeping the vehicle running all require resourcefulness and resilience. But even the hardiest of round-the-world drivers tend to stay away from the Darien Gap, leaving just a handful of expeditions that have driven from Central America to South America. Take your pick of adventurers who’ve set out to drive every hemisphere and check their route. Some, like the Paris-to-New-York...

Crowdfunding campaign aims to restore round-the-world Jeep, send it to finish the trip

Photos courtesy Restore Jeep on Facebook. Just a mile or so. Despite driving 56,000 miles down two continents and up two others in the same Jeep, a single ferry trip negated Loren Upton’s dream of driving the entire route over land. Nearly 30 years later, Upton’s family has started raising funds to restore that Jeep and send him to Israel to achieve his goal. “Restoring this jeep would mean the world to a man who spent most of his life chasing his dream,” Laurence Upton, Loren’s nephew, wrote ...
