I ran out of petrol the other day on my way to Fochville. Stopped next to the road and laid the bike down on its side to get all the petrol out from the "secret reserve". Rode another 11 Km at 100 km/h and just made it to a Fuel station. Tested and worked. ;)
It's never wrong to do the right thing

:laugh: I've used that twice already! I have yet to find out exactly how much fuel is in my second reserve (on the IMS tank)...

I can imagine you must lay the bike down on its left side not so?
