    Joined up with some fellow Inmates and other folks for a planned ride out of Winchester, VA today. There were 5 separate routes. 4 street routes and a dual sport route. I joined up on the dual sport route.

    We met at the Denny's off of exit 323 on I81 in Virginia...

    We broke into our groups and rolled out.

    Yes, the KLR stalled in the middle of the creek. Learned something valuable... There really is a need for a T junction in the vent line for the carb... Sigh. I did get the bike started and I did ride it out though!

    Awesome crossing. Looked like fun except the KLR fording problem.
