My buds had a few storm related problems but nothing more serious than the power being out for a few days. Heck, I'm so used my power going out here in Annapolis that I finally broke down and installed a home generator that keeps my lights and blender going when the lines go down.

Dawg went home and ordered the PittsDriver performance kit* for his KLR and is waiting on some time in the shop to get 'er done.

I've now gone through my bike - changed the oil/filter, repaired the luggage rack, lubed/adjusted the chain, and cleaned the air filter - so I'm ready to roll out again this Tuesday on a couple of days of riding and camping in the Shenandoah Valley and up into PA. This time I'm taking along an old friend who is new to his KLR and adv riding/camping. It seems I'm infecting people with this adventure travel bug.
