I came across this article on advpulse. It describes the story of Sjaak Lucassen. A Dutch adventurer aiming to go to the North Pole… on a Yamaha R1. It was exactly what I needed to read in this COVID-19 infested times. It’s a story about preparation, about looking forward, about (extreme) adventure riding, and most of all, about making dreams come true.
Sjaak wants to leave on his journey early 2021. I don’t know if that’s going to happen given the current situation in the world. He still has lots of preparation to do. If you want to know more, I definitely recommend the advpulse article. It’s a very nice read and definitely something different from most of the news today. Here’s a link to Sjaak’s own website as well.
