Great ride, report, lots of pictures. That's a seriously long remote solo ride; good on ya.
18 months ago but still wanted to say that I really enjoyed your report. Thanks so much for posting.
Yeah, ditto. It's been on my list for awhile. I really wish I'd joined throttlemeister when he left my house from the Soirée. He did the full loop with both ends of the TT. Of course I haven't been able to put it together since.
Thanks for following along!
That sounds like it would be a fantastic trip from your place.
@CavDoc and I are planning on tentatively doing the cheap bastards tour of the trans taiga in 2018.
Maybe I should plan to join you, I was just looking at Turtle-Pac fuel bladders last night
We'll let you know when we're getting closer to the date... as 2018 is pretty far away.
That 20 liter fuel bladder looks pretty amazing... But the price is pretty steep! $389 AU not including shipping. I think I'll stick with my Rotopax and Dromedary bag.
Yup, a little dear in the $$ department
Looks like a great trip. James Bay is on my list of places to get to.
Steps to prepare for TT:
1. Finish rebuilding Jeep
2. Enjoy Jeep briefly
3. Sell Jeep to replenish toy find
4. Buy motorcycle as recently sold motorcycle due to said Jeep and drying up of toy fund due to impending fatherhood

I'm looking at possibly starting to take in my mother in law-that could put a big damper on my adventures!
Great I mean Great photos Max.
Shut up and buy a bike already!!
Or give you more excuses to go on an adventure...
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the report. Thanks for reading along.
Still poking around looking at fuel carrying options
Just found this and enjoyed reading it and being reminded of my trip to this area last september.
I found the Cree to be very friendly and inquisitive, impressed that we had come so far to see their neck of the woods. I'd done a bit of research before the trip, and their appreciation for even a modest bit of interest was paid back in spades. Breakfast at the community building in Chissasibi was a highlight of our trip. Nick is right about the TT road changing as you go along. We found it to be many roads, and encountered a long stretch of freshly graded surface, completely different from 3 days prior. The Rue du Norde was a far more challenging surface, but others have told me it was the opposite for them. Regarding gas, I used two 10 liter Dromedaries, carried in two light weight dry bags, and put into the bike as soon as I could. You can smell the gas through them, but they don't leak, and after two trips it works well for me. (Hi Mike!)
Ha ha, hi John, I was just thinking about you the other day!
Thanks for this. You are an example of what this site is all about. I'd often looked at this trip, but knew that I would never be able to do it, with all my other life stuff. A thought: could you, perhaps, somehow contact the store or restaurant up there, in some fashion, and get a genuine James Bay sticker shipped to ye?
amazing RR, you are a very brave soul..... totally enjoy every bit of it, very good rider , thank you
When I was up there, I wanted to make sure I got a sticker. I asked in several places and didn't find anyone who sold them. I have seen some on a couple of websites but that is all. I checked in Radisson at the restaurants, the gas station and the hotel and no one sold them. One of the people said that it was a good idea though.
If someone does find a place that sells them other than the ones online, I'd love to know about it also.
