This is a great answer to anyone who wonders why some of us carry fuel on our bikes. I know an extra half gallon or so won't make that big of a difference ... unless you happen to be a half gallon short.
I am not real fond of wrestling my bike onto the centerstand under certain conditions. I am real sure I don't want to have to push it under any conditions.
Pic was taken on James Bay Road, north of Matagambe, QC., looking northbound.
James Bay Road is the only way to get to Radisson (an outpost town for Hydro Quebec) in northern QC province. Going north, its the end of the line! Matagambe is at the southern end (or the start) of James Bay Road. In order to ride on JBR, you have to sign in at the southern end. They want to know who is using it and when.
James Bay Road is about 640 kl long, and there is only one gas stop along the way.
Last time I was there, regular was .99/liter. BTW, they sell #1, #2, and unleaded regular ONLY. It's a nice ride up there .. would like to do it again this coming summer.
