That's why I have included some cash in my emergency kit. Hide 5 dollars somewhere on your bike.CajunBass said:Well, I have now pushed mine into the reserve range. Yesterday, I left my debit card at home. I didn't know this until I was on the way home after work. With between a 1/2 and 1/4 tank of gas, and facing about a 60 mile trip still, I had a feeling I was going to be in trouble. Did I mention that I didn't have any cash?
Anyway, with about 20 miles to go, the gas gage started to flash, and the odometer started to count down. At 14 miles, I pulled into a convience store, and got 1.65 cents worth of gas. About .6 gallons. More than enough to get me home, then back to the station this morning.
You can bet I have both my debit card AND cash today.
That sounds about right to me but I hope I never have to verify it.Yesterday I took the Majesty out and put a 72 oz. of gas in a
container and straped it to the seat. I was able to get 37 miles on the
low fuel tripmeter before it ran out of gas. I put in the 72 oz. of gas
went .5 mile to the gas station and pumped in 3.33 gals which the tank
holds almost a full 4 gallons and a range of 200 miles.
