some of you might have read that I ran out of gas on a weed whacker bike and didn't realize it. I drug the motor till it seized. It was only about half a block.

I realized today that it would be freaky but if Iran out of gas going down hill on the china girl bike, the momentum would pull the engine over till it seized as well.

I'm going to be a lot more careful about keeping gas in my bikes now.

yeah deacon that is rude awakening. back in the mid sixties i was breaking in a bultaco 360 on fire trails in so.cal. on one long down i didnt know my gas had slosher forward of the pet cock and leaned out. we parked at the bottom and rolled one, the motor wouldnt restart and it had some gas left. it took a smarter man than me to figure it out.
