    If riding at night in a group, turn your mirrors out and ride on high beam.
    Every bit of light helps

    We tried this but sometimes you need something that's in the tank. Can be 2-3 days till they catch up depending on the mission.
    Handy advice tho'
    I bet there's a few here with tanks, not many places they can't go

    Exercise your sense of humour at every opportunity.

    Serious is for work, riding is for fun..

    And like raider says, don't be that arsehole that everyone in town remembers.

    Some wise words of wisdom given to me some years ago by an old Californian biker by the name of Tom. One I alwas use when people ask "Why are we filling up again."


    If your going to ride on half a tank of fuel.


    Make sure it's the top half.

    Don't use your sidestand on an off camber road & make sure you know where your cat is at all times.

    I generally try and get the flat fixed as soon as I stop, while everything is still warm and pliable... then maybe a cup of tea time. :norton

    If you put it down the road , run / limp straight to the bike and pick it up while you are feeling no pain and the adrenalin is still pumping - leave it 10 minutes and you will be too sore, weak and shocked to get it back on its wheels.

    And #1 on the advice to keep the tank as close to full as possible at all times, that way if you do get a serve of bad fuel it will be diluted to something that will still work not to bad.
