Now then... Enough lengthy history of a trip that hasn't even kicked off yet!

Fresh tires are on the bike...


Skidplate is installed...


Lasercustoms' nifty case guard is in place...


Clarke 4.7-gallon tank and Renazco seat are installed...


Rear rack is installed...


...which necessitates moving the tool bag...


Heated grips will keep my hands comfy in the cool Labrador temps, and the switch tucked out of the way very nicely...


Accessory power socket fit perfectly on the other side...


And here's the XRL, ready and willing.


The next couple evenings I'll be busily packing. James and Keith are meeting me at my house at 6am on Friday, and we're meeting Dan in Derby, VT, just shy of the Canadian border, at about 9.

I can't wait to get this show on the road so I can finally stop driving myself (and presumably James, Dan, and Keith) crazy with all my planning and obsessing. I can't help it, I'm full-blooded German, and the planning/logistics gene kicks into overdrive whenever the opportunity presents itself. Thank god there are no small countries nearby to invade.
