Pushed it to her house about a mile away and temporarily fixed it and brought it to the Harley dealer. He explained to me after my bitching that I should have know about this common issue and changed the cable out. Sold the bike after owning a year and made 200 bucks. I haven't owned a Harley since.
55 miles on a 2 gallon peanut tank? That's what, a gallon and a half to reserve? Wtf did you expect? Mine had the 4.5 gallon tank, and it would do 180-220 miles between fills.
Because so much is riding on your tires.
