What a knob I am

Off to work I go this morn on the bike, got about 15 mins down the road, the bike cuts out. I thought oh no not again.

 

The old girl wouldn't start up and I started to panic, being late for work ect ect. So I phones my breakdown company, only to be told it will be a hour before they get to me. Whilst Im waiting the local nut nut come over and chats/scares me, so I ignore him and investigate as to why the bike wont start.

 

I er look and see hoe much fuel I have and I can quite clearly say I had naff all fuel. I felt like a right twat when I had to explain this lol. I have never ran out of fuel lol.

Try throwing a

tantrum on the driveway because your bike cuts out everytime you release the clutch.....then realise the sidestand is still down which (on a kwak) has a cut-out switch

One time (in band camp)

Bike wouldn't start.  Had a ferry to catch.  Was at Spa.  Spent 1 hour trying to sort it in the rain.  Finally stripped some wires off something to make some jump leads...  then I spotted that some @rse had knocked my kill switch.

:mad:

Ah, never mind, Sam.

Fill that tank and come down for a rideout. We discovered the very best chocolate cake in the World on our last KSB rideout, and I promise you'll forget about everything else when you try it.

There's a petrol station right next door, too :biggrin:

never

done the fuel thing but i was once riding down this road and bike suddenly cut out and rolled to a stop. I was mega confused why it would just stop and was stood there 10 mins then 2 other bikers pulled up. We were all looking at the bike wondering what it was etc , then i realised i must've caught kill switch so discreetly flicked it then said to other guys ill try it again and guess what it started. So i said thanks and rode off lol
