To put it in perspective, Google Maps cannot even calculate the directions from Owen Sound to Fort Severn, Ontario—two dots at opposite ends, south to north, of Canada’s second-biggest province. But Oliver Solaro made the entire 8000km journey (there and back, via Manitoba) on his Kawasaki KLR this past winter, documenting the entire trip.

Two YouTube videos, known as the Brokentooth Project, reveal his incredible journey, complete with mechanical breakdowns, physical injuries and heart-wrenching moments of intense human connection. Read here for his personal account of this epic trip. His riveting videos of the experience are below.
