Not a bad idea ...I know some Toronto riders are doing it.

BTW it's not that remote but it is nice to go with a buddy. Jut make sure you carry a spare gas can. The Wee could just make the 380 km but its a push and there is a tendency to ahem ....roll the throttle on .

This was our trip ....the Strom will handle the frost heaves very well.

There ar caribou about and the bugs are incredible ...we went in late June to get maximum daylight ...make sure you book the Quebec Hydro tour
