I worked outta Yellowknife, so we were surveying the NWT/NUNAVUT border.

I am happy to have learned of this through ADV.

And to think the GF labels this site as a "time-waster!!)

Now I have a reason to buy a Stelvio and ride up to Black Island, 'cause I sure as hell ain't taking

my K1200GT down that road!!

Of course, Black Island is in fact a peninsula, not an island...

Wonder wherefore the misnomer...?
Not as much of a legend as my SO is. She rode her F650 GS alongside my 1150 GS on the same trip. We didn't go straight up the James Bay road either. We headed east at Lebel sur Quevillon over to Chibougamau, then rode and camped on Route Du Nord to it's intersection with the James Bay Road. I'd consider it a once in a lifetime trip because I have no intention of doing it again

We did this trip in 2004. Judging by the looks on the faces of the resident population near Nemiscau where we camped for the night, they weren't expecting to see the long blond hair of a female when she took off her helmet.
