The James Bay Highway is a biker's dream!

It is about 400 km to the only gas station - you really need to carry extra gas. When we did fill up at the mid way point, we calculated that, with the extra 3.5 litres we put in my bike, I could have made it with my 25 litre tank. Dyno would not have made it with his 22 litre tank. We also discovered that at "normal" driving speeds, the V-Strrom 1000 and the BMW 1100 got very similar mileage. At high speeds, the BMW got much better mileage than the V Strom.
