I traveled the James Bay highway on my C-10 Connie back in '08 or 9. Cool trip, though not necessarily technical riding. Some side trips on the dirt roads would likely be rewarding but do take note of the gasoline situation noted below.
I camped at the provincial campground on the way up and down(just north of Matagami), stayed at some sort of city/private CG in Radisson. Plenty of supplies there and also a large Co-op super market at the big tent mall in Chisassibi(sp?). Do ride over to the actual James Bay. A photo of your bikes parked on the beach at low tide is a prerequisite. I've been told that riding on the beach below the high tide line puts you officially in Nunavit.
The only English signs I saw were at the little road side campgrounds asking for a donation and at the check in/out station.
This was quite disappointing when you pulled off to read those info panels at different pull offs. They were only in French and Cree.
BTW, unless something has changed, there is 240 Miles to the next gas stop heading north from Matagami.
Have fun up there.
Yeah, if you want true ram air tuning, you better be willing to ram some air! (SteveinSunnyFlorida)
