  • Gas...

    Well I found out exactly how far the Fat Boy will go on reserve Wednesday afternoon....damn it was hot (104*) pushing that bike 2 blocks to the gas station
    :)

    I hit reserve about halfway home figured i had about 30 miles or so left but i didnt, I guess with the hotter temps that day I got worse gas mileage than i usually do....I guess its bound to happen to you sooner or later if you ride.

    Dang, I'd hate to have to push the Road King two blocks! Hope it was level or downhill!

      Actually it was pretty level, I thought i was in alot better shape than i am. I was huffin and puffin something awful. In hindsight i probably should've just left it and walked to the station and brought gas back....I guess since i could see it i thought might as well just push it there.

        Been there no fun at all. I'm sure the 104 made it that much more fun.

            They would have to send the EMT's with air for me. I hhave pushed the mileage before but was lucky.
            Those who say it can't be done should get in the way of those doing it.

                    That sucks! But I'm glad you were at least that close. Could have been further.

                    Too funny, Frank. :)

                      haha, that would have given him a little better mileage. I almost ran out of gas, I tried testing my miles left on my dash and the bike did not like that.....lol, still made it but I could tell it was struggling

                            I ran outta gas once, I took some tools and unbolted the gas tank, carried it to the station 2 or so miles up the road, put a buck in it, walked back and bolted it back on.......

                            Yep.........running outta gas sucks!!!
