Trans Labrador Highway by MOTO

Voila, les voyages continuent...  The journeys continue:  Bip Bip you are gone but not forgotten.  In the spirit of continued travel here is a smaller adventure that took place between 26 June and 8 July 2013.

Feeling sorry that my F650GS DAKAR is imprisoned in the garage for these last two years, it was time to take it out and stretch its legs so to speak.  So what to do to merit the 'adventure' status this bike carries?  How bout 4000km loop up through Quebec and Labrador and finally to Newfoundland and again to revisit the Cabot Trail (see earlier in this blog for Fannys visit)  back to the starting point in Fredericton, NB.  The Trans-Labrador highway has been recently opened (2010) and there are still over 1000kms of gravel roads...

Nous avons frappé un barrage routier à Labrador City en raison des feux de forêt là-bas. Nous avons passé la nuit, mais avons eu la chance d'obtenir le dernier convoi parti le lendemain matin.  Vous pouvez regarder la reportage d'ici et nous voir a 1:10 and 1:59 minutes:

We hit a roadblock at Labrador City due to the forest fires there.  We spent the night, but were lucky to get the final convoy out the next morning.  You can catch us at 1:10 and 1:59 marks:

oops...soft deep gravel and down you go.  Goings slow enough to run off the bike!
