It’s coming, and there’s no denying it. Winter, that time when, if you live where the mercury drops down below the 40’s, you hook up the trickle charger to your battery and let your mount take a long nap. The lucky ones in nicer climes don’t have that problem, and apparently neither does Sjakk Lucassen. He’s the mad genius behind this Yamaha snow machine. Apparently he does this all the time, crazy bastard, but it proves you don’t have to let the snow stop you. Well, it stops me, but then I’m not loony enough to go riding in it!
When I first saw pictures of this bike I thought it was a Photoshop mockup. Minimalism has been taken to the extreme, with nary a wire showing just about anywhere. While it’s not a daily driver, so to speak, it does make a very satisfying impression, and fits the theory of less is more!
