Great RR and information for those planning on making the trip! Thanks for taking us along. The GPS coordinates really help put things in perspective. I may have missed it in the beginning, but how many days was the trip door to door?

Great report! Enjoyed it tremendously. Had some errands to do this morning; but am getting late, instead hooked on reading the thread.

I am planning a JBR ride myself, probably won't make it this season anymore - next spring, perhaps.


Donnymoto: it sounds like you had good cell coverage en-route. Who is your provider?


Throttlemeister: where were you able to get on the internet that soon? And, what does 33-1/3 NCS refer to?

Yes I can't imagine any issues with 9 days at all.

Verizon. I got some roaming charges but not bad at all. I could have turned off the phone more often...

Thanks Donny, I would like to have more but I am closer than VA also so that saves some road time, especially when on a 650!

Appreciate all the info from your report...

Really cool ride report. One of the best from that region I've ever read.

I'm not a biker but I love reading about some of the adventures you guys go on.

I'm also a total James Bay Road junkie (which is a great term, by the way), and I did do the trip to Chisasibi by car last September. We didn't get to see the Northern Lights because the moon was full, but it was still amazing.

Gas was $1.58/l at the 381 Relais when we went up.

First of all, Welcome! Glad you liked it the report! Before the trip I thought that this would be the only time I ride up there, I've got so many other trips on the "do before I die list", but it was so fantastic that I will return. I figure that if I redeye it from my doorstep I can be at Matagami in less than 24 hours so an extended weekend??? Cool. I used to do those drives to New Mexico. I can't recall gas prices partially because I don't do metric these days so the numbers didn't mean a lot, I had to fill up anyway but I do believe it was cheaper.

What time of year

What time of year were you up there swimming? Did you say they already diverted part of the Rupert? It looks a little slower then it did in June of 08. Did you see any Caribou or Bear? All we saw were dead ones :)

Hey Gil, was August. I was up there several days and was by far the warmest day. Yes, the Rupert was already being diverted and was down about 3 feet according to a local person I met there. No wildlife spottings. I talked to others who'd seen wolves and a bear same time I was there. I see alot of bears here in VA but have never seen a wolf outside capivity. Maybe next time, I will return there sometime and spend more time up there.
