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.

d'oh

My hubby ran out of fuel on the A249.  There's a petrol station at the top.  So he pushes the bike a mile up the hill in full bike gear in height of summer.  Arrives in a bit of a sweaty state only to realise that the reserve tank was still full he only had to flick the switch :blink:
