I was at Chasibi and the Bay in mid August. There was a couple, from Montreal I believe, riding the TT on a 1200GS and F650GS twin at the time. I rode the Route du Nord, and will have to return for the TT. The Route du Nord had a long construction section when I was there, with soft sand, and later all those loose marbles on top of the packed base.

A agree, the blueberries were awesome when I was there too. Thanks for the pictures and memories.

The TT was mostly this. This is my new enemy.

Fantastic ADV gang..Thank you guys ..

Hello Adam, Great pictures. I actually like that Polish Vodka. Has a hint of Vannila and Coconut, and goes down nice and smooth. No strange dreams (that I remember) after consuming it either.

PD
I was one of the single riders. Really amazing trip. Great challenge and sense of accomplishment. A couple of "events" made it quite interesting at times. I became addicted to the "swiming feeling" that happens while driving on the marbles.

Glad you guys had fun no air lifts were needed. Thanks for doing the RR.

Could you tell us what kind of pump you were using to air up the tires.
Also, how was the fishing, my trip it was all brook trout.
