Hypothetically speaking....
 
Suppose some guy who rode "borrowed" dirt bikes as a teeneager in the '60s finally bought his first motorcycle when he turned 55, rode it from North Carolina to Nova Scotia, and thought himself to be quite the adventurer.
 
Then tragically, he happened upon this site.
 
Now suppose that nearing 60 years of age, he traded for a 2003 Kaw Concours 1000 and wanted to ride to Alaska and back.
Solo.
And that he thought this might be a good time to try motorcycle camping.
And that it seemed like a good idea to start the trip with a BBG1500.

What if he ran out of gas on his FIRST TANK?
