Re: Sydney Ride - Tues 23rd May

I had to pullover today as I was extremely tired and started to make rookie mistakes going into corners.

Had about an hour nap on a beautiful bench next to an abandoned petrol station.

After getting back on the bike the 80km Fuel Warning came on.....

Thats 80km if you don't have a PowerCommander.

In reality I had 50km to run and the next petrol station in Colo Heights was 43km away...... I barely made it, saving fuel by limping to the petrol station doing 65-70. Pretty Shitty when getting passed by cars pulling double axle caravans. The last 10 minutes before I reached the Fuel bowser nearly turned me into a believing christian again..... Filled up the tank to the top putting in 18.7 liters. <<<<< THERE I FIXED IT K-MAN That means I had 0.3 liters left to go before the stutter begins.

Running on fumes, how exciting.
