You got honorable mention on the tor thread. Brian posted a link to the Bob's article about you and your Daughter. Really nice!

Now go to bed... WTH are you doing up?

Loving your ride report. So how far is it from Goose Bay to Port Hope Simpson? Those would be the only places to fill with fuel correct? It looked like you had a fuel can with you.

The intersection with the Labrador Coastal Drive is about midway between Cartwright and Port Hope Simpson. We skipped Cartwright as there was no point in driving up there just to turn around.(our opinion)
Thanks lakota. As this section has just been opened there are no accurate maps and Google Maps does not have the road listed either. Just trying to map it out.

Alvingee,

I believe in an earlier post he said it was about 240 miles.

Phase 3

I went through on August 17th just as they were installing the new sign. You can't miss it.

If I remember correctly....on that section my VStrom ran out of gas at 209 miles (just after I fell over in a pull off that was soft sand). I put in my gallon can and then ran out at 247 miles. I got a half gallon from a passing BMW and made the gas station at 249 miles.

Moral of story....those BMW guys are not so bad after all.

He better be having a pee. There's no time for that other stuff on a road trip. But i guess it's pretty remote, and you never know when those blue pills are going to make themselves known.

we had it as 240 miles from the turn to Port Hope Simpson. I added 2 gallons with about 30 miles to go. On the F658 Jack had his on board computer reading 8 miles to empty when he pulled into the first gas station in Port Hope Simpson.
there is no gas between the two.

RFlagg42,

Thanks for the map / assist.

Wonder how long it will be before Google Maps catches up?

I did the Trans-Lab in July. Glad to see someone stopped to take a few pics for me. Upon entering Canada the border guard asked our group how long we are staying and where we are going and said repeatedly "Do you know how far that is? Man your aren't going to see nothin' but road." He was correct to a large degree. But after all some trips are meant to be exactly that.

I am loving this thread and I will be saving it for reference
I just put a deposit on a Yamaha Super Ténéré and will be getting the bike sometime in May next year. I was planning on going to Labrador with my brother but now will probably do the route you guys are doing.
Love your pictures and description of the roads.
Wow, 240 miles, not sure if the Yamaha will do it, my current Concours would do it easily with it's 7.5 gallons but the Concours is not the bike to travel on those roads. I guess I will have to carry fuel or I will just siphon from my brothers BMW GS1200A
