The May 1991 edition of Australasian Dirt Bike contained a reference to a Japanese guy who had ridden a Serow across Antarctica.

There weren't any more details unfortunately, only a very small photo of an article in a Japanese bike magazine.

Pretty impressive.

Anyone ever heard of this feat before?

Across ice and snow at potentially the coldest place on Earth?!

Hi Tex,

I'm guessing you mean Shinji Kazama, who rode a modified Yamaha TW200, to the North Pole.

If you ever saw the BBC series Pole to Pole, with Michael Palin, you'll see he's featured on one of the episodes, where he rode to the South Pole on a 2 stroke Yamaha, with a modified TY250 engine.

Hope this helps.

Regards
