Paul I am trying to link you up with a guy from McMurray, a BMW guy that has done this ride. He is a great BMW biker. He did from Tuck to Prince Rupert to Halifax and back 9in the winter) on a BMW F800GS and he is in McMuray right now to do a charity ride to Fort Smith. You really need to talk to him. I sent you a personal PM to contact him. He lives in Renfrew Ont, you could call his Mrs.
