I road up this afternoon to see my mate Andrew, and as I left for home I can remember thinking to myself that it was taking along time to tickle the carb! I should have listened better. About 3 miles down the A31 near Bently I ran out of fuel
I was only 2 miles from a petrol station so tried leaning the bike over to get some fuel from the other side. but only managed about 1/2 mile. Hmm, thought I'd have to ring Andy but then a bike pulled over. My saviour Nick enquired into my troubles and offered me some of his petrol, what a great lad.
Anyway, one sad fact about our roads, finding an old plastic bottle wasn't differcult, even found an empty one without the yellow contents but how to get the fuel out. His tank had a quick release connection but nothing came out. Well I thought, game over. But he had a eureka moment. He pulled off a long breather pipe from his tank and used it to siphon petrol out. Result
I was most impressed with his quick thinking. Couldn't thank him enough and wouldn't even let me fill his tank. I told him about my little blog so if you read this Nick drop me a text 07818067330. Might be able to do you a turn one fine day
