It was probably Nick949 here -AJ
Almost 40 yrs ago I tried to reach the tree line in artic Quebec on a '58 BMW R50. I was riding solo, a couple of days in, in heavy rain, when I stopped in a backwoods cafe for a bite and to get out of the rain. I lingered over wine, not wanting to get back in the rain. When I went back out it was cold, getting dark, and the bike was impossible to kick-start. I probably flooded it, and the wet wires didn't help. Thank G-d a Canadian farmer stopped to talk. He didn't speak English, but I used my best high school French, and he helped push start it. Once running, I turned around and headed south. I was young, camping w just a pup-tent and cheap gear, no spares and little experience. That farmer was a life-saver.Joe
Hi Joe, Your info at the time misled you. There are NO roads that get to beyond the tree line in Quebec. The furthest points north you can ride are Longue Point and Radisson on the James Bay coast - or go inland on the Trans-Taiga Road. Even there, you're still in the world of little trees.https://goo.gl/maps/czKmpcp5MVqpMPTU6Long may it stay that way.Nick
Nick,I was young, and this was pre-internet, so I had no info. Some highway maps, a topo map and a compass, and that's it. I'm glad I failed while I still had the chance to recover. It was a crazy time. Today's riders wouldn't understand.Joe
