400cc Motorcycles from the Arctic to Antarctica in 99 Days
Talk About Taking the Long Way
A Dominar Polar Odyssey
Would you ride a 400cc motorcycles a long, long way? Personally, I would. I love small-displacement bikes, but even I am not sure I would want to ride one from the Arctic Circle to the Antarctic Circle. That, however, is exactly what these guys did.
Deepak Kamath is a seasoned motorcycle adventurer and he managed to get his two adventuring buddies to go with him on this epic journey. The trio also managed to get a few sponsors for this wild ride. The guys rode 400cc Bajaj Dominars from Alaska to Usuaia, Argentina. From there, it was a boat ride to Antarctica. They had 99 days to make it happen, according to ADV Pulse.
The team did suffer a bad crash in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. They were stuck there for three weeks. However, they still managed to complete the 51,000 km (31,960 miles) on time.
They had no chase vehicle and did maintenance and repairs themselves on the fly. When absolutely necessary, they found shops that would work on their bikes and get them back on the road as soon as possible. In the end, they made it, and you should watch the epic journey unfold below.
