    Are you referring to my KLR? It's not for sale.

    I wanted to go for a ride last night but the 640 wouldn't start for the 2nd time in 3 1/2 years. Damn!

    Now that my 640 is back on the road I needed to get out for a bit of a shakedown. It was -5ºC when I left the house to ride the Bacalieu Trail. Chilly on the face with my moto lid on.Quick photo stop I think in Broad Cove.

    Several riders from Quebec rode to Schefferville in 2007. When L.Y.S.T and I did the TLH in 2010 we rode up to Esker to have a look at their route. We followed a rough trail beside the rail line North for a kilometre or so until that ran out and we were forced to either ride between the rails or turn back. We were told by railway maintenance staff in Esker that riding on an active rail bed was illegal and that the railway was policed regularly. They were helpful and informative about the history of the railway etc as well.
    From our brief recon of the conditions I think these guy's ride report is very understated and they were wise to tackle it in a larger group. If riders are interested in that area it's possible to take your bike on the train with you to Schefferville as there seems to be a lot of remote riding up in that area.
    I know the Trans Tiaga route doesn't connect to Schefferville but maybe there's a connection by boat? If so a "Trans Tiaga Loop" might be possible.
    Hope it's ok to post a link to info on another forum here???
    The pics from the 2007 RR are down now but the narrative is still good if anyone's interested:

    That's a great video, got to be the first time I've seen anyone boil their oil to get the water out :)
