Well i recently bought a cbr250r, for the right price (dealership, $4500 with 6 months rego, . Been riding around a few days now, enjoying every moment of it. Until about an hour ago. I had been riding back from a friends place, and was thinkin "oh yeh, according to other peoples distances i should have to switch over to reserve soon". About 5km down the road, i start to lose power and switched it over to reserve. No fuel. First thought: "bugger". Pull over, and thought "well i know i have a can of fuel at home". Ring home, noones there to bring my fuel to me. Home is 10km further away. The closest servo is 2km away. So i start pushing cuz i couldnt afford another fuel can. As thousands of cars pass me, noone pulls over to see what hte problem is. After 30mins in the hot townsville sun, i finally get to my destination. Top up with fuel (for the first time), but the battery didnt have enough charge to start the bike (wasted it trying to start on what should have been reserve). So i had to push start my bike, which noone would help me with. Then i got home. Moral of the story, don't ride far from petrol stations when you think you might be low on fuel. Will take the fuel cock apart, see if the diaphragm is buggered. Or if it had previously been replaced and the switch was put on upside down. or something. god damn i am tired.
