Some stations do, but from what I'm understanding those that have power were running out of gas. They're supposed to be getting gas delivered over the next few days, but they may not be able to keep up with the demand with all of the portable generators being used.

A lot of stations have gas but no power so they can't pump. The stations that have power are out of gas due to the disruption in the supply chain caused by the hurricane. This is a temporary situation but people that didn't prepare before the storm (simple things like filling up all your vehicles and gas containers for running a generator on Sunday before the storm hit) are in panic mode.

But I love 'em just the same... I just cleaned mine too, wiped 'em down with a rag sprayed with WD-40, seems to keep the brake dust and chain lube from sticking too much.

It reached about 80* here today, so I took it for a cruise up in the hills. Put about 70mi on it. Very nice day for being November!

Cleaned her, finally installed the AI removal kit, and took her for a spin. Tomorrow i have to install the modified TTP tune to clear up some off idle spitting.

I tightened the header bolts and the silencer clamps. It had begun to sound funky until warmed up so I figured it for a small exhaust leak which closed when the heated metal expanded.
Problem solved.
