Bridging the Divide
Where the Road Ends Moto (WTRE) is an epic 5 month, 18,571 mile, motorcycle journey from northern Alaska to southern Argentina. Approximately 7,500 miles into the adventure in Panama is the dreaded dense jungle and river network known as the Darien Gap, a 100 mile geographic barrier preventing a person from driving continuously between North America and South America. To help bridge this great divide, the WTRE crew solicited the support of Quicksilver and Mercury Marine. The single company provided Mercury outboard engines to use as bartering chips to ensure safe passage of the team and their Quicksilver laden motorcycles by experienced local guides through this dangerous and unknown stretch of the world. It also served as a unique way for the company to showcase their products simultaneously in two very different industries. The team has chronicled their adventure and will be releasing a full-length documentary in late-2018.
