Almost forgot how to use them.......

Got some fuel in Taralga, NSW today.

The bowser is manual "zero" and turn on, can't remember the last time I used one of these.



Me getting fuel, 100% Strom and Bonox waiting patiently.

Last year's Big Bend trip




In the photo below, the guy filling the bike is Mark the owner of BMW Motorcycles of North Houston and the rider is Brian the manager. Brian ran out of fuel in the middle of no where. Fortunately Mcgyver (Jim Sydow) had a syphon pump to get him to next gas station.

Note to Brian, never go by the computer, go by the gas guage needle!

Pic below is of a make shift gas station, Syphon pump:

I've been there as well. The pumps at King's Canyon Lodge are the oldest gravity feed pumps in the US.
