Since you get a two stage warning from the gauge, you shouldn't really need the reserve, but I do miss it
I was 17, 1982 or 83 riding my first bike the 20 miles from home to the campground, talked to my Dad before leaving. Told him I was taking the backroads, he said he was taking the highway.
Right about 4 or more miles from the nearest gas station halfway through the trip, sputter and die. Sitting there, wondering how bad it was going to suck to walk four miles to the nearest station, and was sure with my luck they would have no small gas cans, Out of nowhere, Dad appears, said he took the backroads just in case
Grabs me, we go to the station, get a small can, back to the bike. As I'm filling it up, he says "Son, been maybe 30 years or more since I rode a bike, and that was only a buddies once in a while, do they still have a reserve?" Man was I embarrassed
