Yeah dude...sorry about your luck. A few things to learn from this...1) know your mileage on a tank of gas. 2) Check your fuel levels before every ride. You can open up the fuel cap, peak down in the tank, you can give the bike a subtle rocking to see where the fuel is, that usually is a good indicator 3) you MAY be able to bump start your bike and 4) Those of us who have trucks and ramps are willing to help.
Call me anytime...Anthony (586) 612-9200. I am more than happy to help out. I've met you before on the first ride this year.

|bubba_d_duck||i tried but all the loose gravel on the shoulder made it hard to keep the wheel from sliding. and i wasnt a 100% sure that i could jump it from the car so i didn't want to chance and being a newbie i completley spaced about the reserve till it was too late. i learned my lesson from that dumb mistake though. there was one guy and gal that stoped to see if i needed help but besides that a lot of laughing and people yelling you're supposed to ride it|

Should have been able to switch to reserve before it even stoped running.
By the way when bump starting a bike gears higher than first are less likely to lock up the tire, don't go too high though or you'll have to be running to start it.

Did it ever occur that you may have been able to jump start your bike.
next time this happen which I am sure it wont not after that experience.
try putting the bike in first gear pulling the clitch in have someone push you and then pop the clutch. She will start right up after two or 3 tries if your lucky but it beats pushing
or if that fails you can always jump it from a car battery just don't keep those jumper cables on there to long both methods have been tried and tested sucessfully by me

I thought you had made something up like this a while back. Perhaps it needs to be updated annually? (not that I'm in the club, want you to spend yet more time on redline stuff, or want to have to cut a meal short because you got an emergency call on the bat phone, BUT since everyone is so accomadating and helpful for you...I guess I can't really mind. )
