So the question is.....what is the furthest one can ride in each province?
I have googled Pickle Lake in Ontario and has found it continues a bit further. Is this the furthest?

How far have you made it?

It is a sort of bucket list I have made for myself.

Can you help suggest places to get to ......?
Thanks...I'm all ears......
That's a great bucket list....like baggin' 14ers for ADV riders!

Do you have a list for each province yet?

I think frazman means hiking up every 14-thousand-foot peak in the Rockies. My brother is into that, that's how I know.

BTW .......In Quebec...Long Point,Chisasibi and/or Radisson are quite a ways south of Caniapiscau which is at the end of the Trans Tiaga Road.
And yes you can ride a motorcycle all the way out there.

Myself,my brother and another buddy rode out there a few years ago.

Fuuny part is that you can't really get that far north in Ontario compared to some other provinces...

Yeah. You think you're so bad being on the perma-frost in Chisasibi... Until you realise it's a similar latitude to Edmonchuck.

Willys...It is really a nice road.We really took our time and enjoyed the trip. Once you get past Brisay the road is a bit rough but nothing you couldn't drive with a car.
Like you I've done most all of the "North" roads in North America. This one has the least traffic and can be savored.

OK now back to the topic.......

We drove up to Windigo last year. My KLR was able to make it up and back from Pickle Lake on one tank (incl reserve) but we traveled at about 80-90kph. Advice is to take extra gallon of fuel even on the KLR supertankers.

Osnaburgh is not that bad, in fact the locals seem to love motorcycle riders and will "thumbs up" you as you pass, but there not much in Oz to see, so really no reason why anyone would stop in the first place.

Fishing is out of this world, any place every cast.

You will see a lot of this


We went in July but the weather was unseasonably coolish so no fly problems at all. There is a great camping spot at Menakos Lakes. Lots of fuel and supplies available at Pickle Lake.

The end of the dock at Windigo, as far north as you can drive in Ontario


The road is a lot like his





Campsite at Menakos




Fuel and supply stop at the Frontier Mart in Pickle. You have to go downtown Pickle to get beer.


Road to Musslewhite mine ZZR_Ron works up the road from here.
