Many are familiar with one of the icons of adventure travel Sjaak Lucassen and his exploits on the Yamaha R1. Well many call him crazy for his choice of ride on his continental explorations, and now he's taking it to a new extreme. Yep, he's going to ride an R1 - heavily modified - on the polar ice.
We'll host a series of videos along the way covering the modifications, gear and all the preparation involved followed by the ride itself.
Sjaak's FB page as some great detail as he get's ready to head to Barrow.
We will be in touch with Sjaak while he's on the road and update the thread....
