I plan on driving from Maine to Goose Bay (about 1200 miles each way). I would like to take my 2012 GW but don't know if the road is built such that a GW can traverse it. Anyone made that trip by bike?
When did you do your trip? What type of vehicle?The "freedom highway" is a "road" in name only. I would never consider taking a Wing on it. Dual purpose bike is designed for the rough riding. Can be very hot and lots of bugs that never rest. If you can schedule it for the few weeks between bugs and cold weather it would be almost bareable. It's kind of like the bad parts of the Alaska Hwy....except the Alaska Hwy has some nice sections of paved roads...Labrador doesn't.
When I worked in Nfld I visited Happy Valley & Lab City/Wabush for a couple of weeks. One of my fellow Cop buddies was there & he told me enough horror stories and from what I saw on a short drive on it & what he said, I would not want to ride anything 2 wheeled on that road. We had enough trouble in a Suburban.When did you do your trip? What type of vehicle?
