Default Re: Ran out of gas for the first time....

i rode 80 total miles today (half gallon peanut,) and about 5 miles from home, i checked my tank. had about 3 oz. left.

luckily i checked when i did, because the next 3 miles home is a straight shot through an industrial district, and the last 2 is residential. no gas stations at all.

so i putted about 1/2 mile outta my way, found a home depot for oil, and a shell next door. filled up, shook my bike around, and was on my way again.

so, i got about 70 miles to a half tank today. sounds like a lot, but it was almost all flat, and off shore wind in the morning, and onshore wind coming home, so at my back the whole way.
