Reminds me of the TWO times I ran out of gas on my former bikes.
First time was on my 99K1200RS. On the Blue Ridge Parkway. LUCKILY, i was at the top of a big hill, and I coasted all the way to the bottom, into this town, and only had to push it about .3 miles. The weather was nice on that one. I bet I coasted, in neutral, 2 miles. No lie!!!
Second time was on my 95 R100GSPD.
Yes...9.5 gal gas tank, and I ran out of gas!!!
Here's the thing about this bike, it has two petcocks. One on each side. When the bike starts to putter from lack of gas, you turn one petcock to reserve, and when it putters again, you turn the other. NOTE: This was a suggestion I HEARD about this bike...and was the FIRST time doing so.
So, I'm riding, it putters, I turn ONE petcock, ride about 30 miles, putters again, and I figure I have 30 more miles. WRONG!!!!!!!! 6 miles later...I'm outta gas. It is raining HARD, it's getting dark, I'm on a 4 lane highway, and I push that F#$KIN! bike 2 miles...up the offramp...to a gas station. Next time, I get gas at the FIRST putter!!!
