I think he's trying to tell us that he likes to push things and bikes - to the limit / petrol station

and 4 US gallons are less than 4 UK gallons

Your a braver man than me, I've never gone more than fifteen miles on reserve. I pushed an empty RD350LC for three miles once, which taught me a valuable lesson. Never again!

The rest of the story. Rolled to a stop about 1.5 miles from the next Interstate exit, pushed about half a mile overheating in jacket and helmet, stopped to take gear off. The parking lane is sloped away from the road, truck comes by at speed and the wind blows the bike over to the right. Crap, get it back up, push another quarter mile tried the starter again and it started and ran to the gas station; so when you run out of gas I guess there is a little bit trapped in the left side of the tank.:whiner:

So, moral of the story is - Drop you bike on the right side when you run out of gas to make it run again for a bit!

Can I drop it myself, or do I need to wait for a truck to do it properly....?:kidding:

I try to add gas every time the light comes on. I put between 2.6 and 2.8 into it. I only had one fill-up over 3 gallons, and that was after 30 miles on the light.

They should sell a bigger tank. I'd totally pick it up.

I think it is appropriate to drop bike yourself BUT only if there is no trucks available in 5 mile radius!
