Those tires seem awfully Knobby for road riding. Sure it wouldn't be better on a dirt bike?

I'm thinking of trying eastern Canada. Trans Labrador Highway?

.
Next summer I take it. Already getting to cold up there for this year I'd think. So you are going to push it until you have a major breakdown are ya.:D Let's hope not but it does seem like you are pushing it a little. Polaris should be sponsoring you for sure!:thumbsup:

Yes, this will be next year.
I'm also thinking about this road- "This is the farthest you can get from a town on a road in North America" - http://www.jamesbayroad.com/ttr/index.html

I was going to trade the Vision but decided to keep it for one more dirty ride.

I think I will be nicer to my next bike. :)

It would be smarter to use a different bike but I've been trying to be the first to go places that no Victory has gone before.

The Shinko has worked well on the highway but it is LOUD!

Will your saddlebags be carrying extra fuel and if so how much? Sounds like that road might call for it.

Believe it or not Dods, I have lived in areas of Northern Maine that had roads like that; and based on the road dirt on the bike in that picture, I would AGREE that a more knobby tire would be appropriate. Certainly a rougher ride, than a street tire!!

Wow, this road is remote!

I don't think I could carry enough gasoline on the Vision to make it to the end and back.

That's why I was asking if the bags would be carrying extra(a lot) of fuel.:D

I thought that maybe you had found a bladder that would work inside the bags that could potentially carry an extra 5 gallons each.

I know when I first started traveling, extra clothes was a lost concept. I'd just shower in what I had an hit the road again when I got ripe.:D
