We did the Route Du Nord last fall when we went up to Radisson, out to James Bay and then east down the Trans Tiaga to the very end.

Here's our ride report.

One of the challenge will be refueling. The map that you show crosses many south-north roads that don't have any refueling point that far north. 400 or 500 km of autonomy seems to be the minimum at least in Quebec.

If you need any informations or help about the Quebec territory, just le me know. I and some friends pretty well know the territory.

Plus the occasional Triumph, BSA, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki and KTM but who's counting
