  1. If they can’t make your turns while staying on the right side of the trail…they need to slow down! The trails are not a closed course track. Just this morning on Tug Hill, went out for a short ride before the trails are closed. Almost got clipped by one of these types. Chris - Maddie’s South in Dansville is not too far from you. Tell the guy to relax, you’ll pick it up.
  2. Not quite correct. You will no longer have to take a PCR or NAT or NAAT test. You will have to take the antigen test. It will need to be administered by a medical professional so you can get the official results. The home test, which is the same antigen test, is not valid. Hopeful that testing will all go away soon.
  3. Still closed during the week? Looks open, but checking to make sure.
  4. Snow Miser, the run from Faillon to Motel du Lac is a pretty fast run. Once you get north of Senneterre it is arrow straight. You will be at your destination easily in the early afternoon. You could make the run to Marina Chibougamau from Faillon and be there around dark. The run down to Roberval will be a nice day. Bring gas as Snowmaster already stated. From the gas stop,in Chibougamau to the station in LaDore is 150 miles. Nice place to stay in Roberval is Chateau Roberval. Since you now picked up a day, from Roberval you can stay at one of the unique locations on TQ 83. A short 125ish miles to Pourvoirie Windigo, or about 230 miles to Barrage Gouin. Nice run the next day to Fer a Cheval. Just some food for thought. Enjoy your ride.
  5. Jack,

    I see you are doing your pre-entry COVID test at Walgreens.  Our group is heading to Quebec on the 18th and I want to make sure we are getting the correct test. Which test are you getting to meet the requirement?


    Diagnostic Lab Test (PCR)

    Rapid Diagnostic Test (ID NOW)

    Thanks, Rick




  6. Anxious to hear the diagnosis as well. As already stated, the 1200 is a bulletproof motor.
  7. Awesome ride. Our team will be up in a couple weeks. We are all anxious to regain that Quebec experience. Ride on and enjoy.
  8. Wishing you a speedy and complete recovery.
  9. Back in the day, I would get most of my information for lodging from the advertisers on the maps and in the magazines. Started in Canada back in 1995 when we were cancelled out of a saddlebag trip around the Michigan UP due to weather. In one of the magazines, SnoGoer I think, Alain from Hotel Motel Saint Agathe use to do a write up about Quebec. My riding buddy and I had the time off, so we booked with Alain and have been hooked on Quebec ever since.
  10. I saw 17 January as well, then reevaluate. Hopefully Omicron fizzles as fast as it burns. (I think they just came up with a new name for a cold?)
  11. Great report. Thanks for taking us along. Enjoy your time.
  12. Hello Snobeeler,  We typically have a group of guys ride in Quebec.  One of our group doesn’t want to get vaccinated, so we thought we’d give him a one time pass and give Maine a try.  I’m thinking we will probably ride some loops and then maybe saddlebag up to Fort Kent or Caribou. Any information that you can share on your experience would be appreciated.  Thanks Rick

  13. My wife just looked at this picture on Facebook, it is in Watertown, NY
  14. Seems like a lot to avoid paying for a trailer registration. Careful going under a bridge.
  15. ^^^That is our formula too.
  16. I have to agree that it is probably a moot point. For those of us going to Canada from the US, we would need to be fully vaccinated with qualified COVID test results. It looks then like the only way you would need a quarantine plan is by having a random test come up positive. In that case, you’re probably heading back home.
  17. Looking for fellow Quebec Rider thoughts on their quarantine plans that have to be submitted when you enter Canada. Is it good enough to say that you will be here on this night, and here on the next night all the way through your entire trip? I thought this may be a helpful topic as there are probably just more than me that are wondering the same.
  18. Something just not fun when the gas light is on for the past 20 miles and you have 10 more to go.
  19. According to the App, 149 miles.
  20. That was most likely our group. Would have been the first week in February. We tried for awhile to connect a small portable generator to the gas pumps that the generator repairman had brought with him. The wiring to the pumps was a soup sandwich without having a schematic diagram.
