    I do definitely need to do that ride. The roads there sound like a ton of fun to ride.

    I'm looking forward to hearing about your Weagamow trip. I almost rode that instead of the Trans Lab.

    Interesting information. It would be great to have more remote adventure riding opportunities in this part of the world.

    Suggest you do a 4-5 day wander of the northern half of New Brunswick on their Forest Service Roads. Suggest ordering from a map co. called Backroad Mapbooks their N.B. map book . I have a number of their map books and they are accurate and of a high quality. I have moved my toy wagon there and used it as a base for day rides. Although carrying camping gear would work well as there are many campgrounds. Also one could wild camp almost anywhere. Thought don’t go June. New when I went June last year that it might be a mistake. F,ING BUGS BAD. Best time to go is few days after Labor Day week end till September 20. Still warm, no bugs, and hunting season not quite open. Any questions? Petepilot

    Great RR. i've had the pleasure of riding the TLH counter clockwise from Newfoundland . On an FJR with knobbies. Mid August 2014. IMG_20140818_101555.jpg Iv'e also ran out to Kegaska . You should have kept going. The end of the line in Quebec. Raddison Quebec was an awesome trip to the North to see the huge Robert Bourassa 1 dam. I too own a WR250 and will start doing some distance rides on it this year. The Gaspe is also a great spot to visit. I hope to run into you out on the road.

    Thanks. I know, I definitely should have ridden to the end. Oh well. That'll be a future trip! Did you do any ride reports of these areas?

    Great report and Pics. I did the TLH & Newfoundland Clockwise last summer on my GS. I have many of those same pics! Gagnon was pretty interesting, cool to see you stopped there. Great memories.

    I'm brutal at doing reports. Maybe with all this new downtime I have I might try and report some.

    Really enjoyed your report.
    I hear about all of the big brook trout in Labrador. Did you see anyone fishing on your route?
    Some of that water looks like it might be great trout habitat!
