Yeah, that felt a little crazy and I think the misquotes were worse here!

I love the pics from Red Bay. Can you imagine living there in the Winter

That would be wild. Although I wouldn't mind experiencing it!

How many Kilometers was the whole trip??
How were the bugs?
The total was right around 6,120km, but I'm sure my rear tire covered a bit more ground than the front at times. There were many Dakar spirited moments along that road.

The bugs weren't bad at all. It was still cool in the evening and mornings. Maybe that helped? I never once pulled out my bug jacket!

I would like to go back again and have more time to take all the tours. The underground generating station at Churchill Falls looks really interesting.

the generators room(massive!) is about 300m under ground. Tour is well worth the time, as far as I remember it is free.

Great report Dave, thanks for sharing!

I love how your bike has over 50k km's, when I can find ones 10 years old (and older) with less than 20k.
Go man go!

Sorry, no tracks. We really just did the ride for the Trans Lab gravel, so there was mostly highway heading out there and on the way back. It wouldn't be a very exciting track to look at.

I know I missed a billion cool roads and trails out there, but I'll be back again!

That looks like a ride I did last year except you have all this blue stuff up in the air where water usually falls from

I might be interested. Planning to visit some relatives in northeastern PA around that time and figure I could shoot up to Labrador when I'm done.
