I would have love to have seen a pic of the middle(plus) aged, breakfast waitress with the mini skrit. but a guess that if you had taken a pic of that it would have really sent the per-vert meter in to the red with the local dinners. lol
i had all kinds of fun riding around Quebec, tried not to drive the French too crazy.

if you are talking about the riding the trans lab, you can read about the way i did it, but of course there's all kinds of info available.

i could have written more about that waitress, maybe i should have. she was well put together no matter the age, and was proud of it. when i said she could turn up the voltage, i wasn't kiddin'.

that girl on the bike did have her meter turned on. she knew there was a guy on a bike back there, and it could only mean one thing.

stay tuned.

thanks for your interest. the bike got a lot of attention in Canada, and ran those roads up there really well.

You'll have to publish a map of the route in QC. When I searched for some of the places you mentioned in Google Maps, there were no roads.

you were probably searching Canuckistan, you need to try Canada.

that bike does fly, but only in the figurative sense. it needs roads, which ones can't be found on Maps?

MTrider if you zoom in far enough you migh see the roads, dirt roads are kinda small on Google maps

even the Longue Pointe road shows on Maps, you can see the boats lined up at the landing.

the LP road was not on my paper maps, but if you can find the dam, you can find the road.

Yes, I'm joking. I zoomed in and the roads were there, just tiny little ones though. You are certianly getting off the beaten path.

Keep the reports coming, I'm enjoying it.
