Then back south to home.




the heart of the ride




The Trans-Taiga’s northeastern terminus is almost at the 55th parallel north, making it the northernmost continuous road in Eastern North America. The terminus is also the farthest point from any town (745 kilometres (463 mi) from Radisson) via road in North America.


My riding partners will be Blaster11 (Bruce) on an HP2, Dorito (Dana, aka Bruce’s better half) on an F650GS, Keithmckenny (Keith) on an R1200GS. I will be on an F700GS
