Jesus! Were you guys playing rock tag out there?
Some earlier posts say gas mileage dropped a lot on the Trans Taiga and related routes once riders stated using local gas. Any of you 2021 TT riders notice a difference?
My mileage went way up because I spent most of my time droning along in top gear at 40-50 mph.
Wow, 3 bikes down on one trip? Are you riding with your eyes closed or something?
Good to see everyone still has a smile on and are still moving forward.
Good idea to bring along that sag wagon.
It sure was on that trip!
Mine dropped fairly significantly basically as soon as I hit the North Road. Maybe the gas is bad, maybe I was riding like I wasn't worried about getting a speeding ticket. Who knows.
We had way too much fun and will regroup for next time with better equipment.
40-50mph?Our group saw well up wards of that which was probably part of our issues.LOL.A couple of walking wounded making the way home.A nuts and bolts was needed every day!
Locktight is your friend!
I won’t be going any faster than that, either. If I ride all the way up there, I hope to enjoy the trip and soak in the views at a leisurely pace. Even monotonous views are okay with me. It will be the only time I see the taiga landscape in my life. May as well appreciate it.
So, what is the current best info on longest distance between fuel stops?
Trying to understand what is the minimum bike range that will work for this trip?
I think with at 300kms you can make it work as extra fuel is required.We planned on 20 litres which worked out with a little to spare.The longest leg without fuel availability is 720 kms to end of the road and back to Mirage.We could only find regular fuel and the only place we got premium was in Nemaska.
Thanks for the intel.
Wow, 720 kms! That’s a long stretch. Once the Camel tank is installed the F700GS should have about 450-475 kms range. So I would need to carry another 3 gallons or so of fuel to make it.
On a CRF300 Rally I’d have to carry about the same amount of extra fuel, too.
I am sorry I am off on the mileage!It 556kms return to end of the road and back from the Mirage.Too many numbers Too early LOL
Am I going to want that 5 gallon gas bag? I'm hoping my mileage improves when I do my carb rebuild.
Ahhh - - that is much more manageable. An extra 6 L / 1.5 gallons should do the trick. Maybe the 2 gallon Rotopax just to be safe.
That's great news for me. My airhead G/S has about 580km range and my thumper has a range of about 630km. I won't need to carry too much extra fuel (I have a 6L Desert Fox) regardless of which I ride. And both drink regular.
I was doing it solo, and didn’t want to have to use my inReach.
I heard after Brisay the condition of the road gets a lot worse. Does anybody have a clear picture of the road surface?
