No evidence of insanity as far as I can see. In fact it makes me feel like the insane one.
Thanks for the link. It was a good way to start my day.

well.... perhaps youd like to see somebody who's doing it WITHOUT the huge sponsorship. This guy is from the area where i live (tuscany, Italy) and hes just great!!! Truly modest and down to earth guy! been gone for ages and he is now in New Zealand and man... what an adventure!

Sjaak Lucassen

His theory is that you can go round the world on any kind of bike and you're better off riding the kind of bike you feel most comfortable with. Apparently he blew off all the dirt bikes in soft sand because his tyres are about a mile wide. You have to be careful on rough roads though as the suspension is not very compliant.

It's the clearing out of the muddy water from the exhaust that cracks me up every time I see it!

Sjaak

I met Sjaak at the HU meeting in Belgium last year. He was there with his R1.
He showed the movie and told about his adventures. Very interesting and a very nice guy.
