R1 Goes Exteme
• The ride towards the North Pole has become a big step closer! At the Belgian bike shop Felix & Jos they offered me to deliver a donor R1, necessary for the build of the North Pole Motorcycle.

• On 14 and 15 May I attended the MCN Festival of Motorcycling in Peterborough. Lots of talking and of course selling my book ‘Life on 2 Wheels’ and documentary DVD ‘Sjaak the World’. But there I also met Supporters that want to ride symbolically with me towards the North Pole. Interested too?

R1 Goes Extreme @ MotorCenterVenlo
• The MAIFEST at Motorcenter Venlo is done. Sociable, busy and lots of bike talks. Thanks everybody for paying a visit and Motorcenter Venlo, thanks for the well-organised event, and… thanks that my 3 racehorses could visit their stable again  :-)

R1 Goes Exteme, carbs
R1 Goes Extreme
• Pushing bikes in my Iveco van is not one of my favourite things to do, but because last year I nicked the carbs from the Polar Ice Ride R1 and put them on my World Travel R1, that is just what I had to do often. So it was high time to clean the old carbs that came of Florentina and mount them on the ice R1. Now 2 out of 3 bikes are running again!

HU-Germany 2016
• Together with 3 travel bikes, I am at the Horizon Unlimited meeting in Germany (5 – 8 May). I am one of the presenters. 2 Decades World Travel & Adventure, that’s where my new talk is about. I also have a stand, displaying my new book, ‘Life on 2 Wheels’, the Documentary DVD, ‘Sjaak the World’ and R1 goes Extreme Merchandise which is also available in my web shop.

Presentation Sjaak Lucassen in Belgium
• In the Belgium town Zottegem I was present during the Flying Saucer Bike Meeting from MC Devil Rowlers. Bad weather held many bikers back, but it was a very pleasant event!
