OK, this started after the '09 Bayou Classic Rally when rodie1200 (Clayton) ran out of gas. This year at the BCRII he was presented with a 1 gallon gas can to ensure he always had some gas. As luck would have it, his wife rode home with my wife in my truck (it was raining) and I somehow ended up with the gas can. Shortly after, I ran out of gas.

So, here's the deal. I've added Clayton and my names to the side of the gas can. It is to be an ongoing award for those of us who are unlucky (stupid) enough to let our bikes run out of gas. Post you story and the current award holder will mail the gas can to you. Add your VR name to the can and watch for the next idiot......er, unlucky person to post his or her story, then send them the can.



Oh, the can is empty....it's only a symbolic award. You'll still have to walk or flag down help.


this is my story...
Clayton.....hope this makes you feel better. I've joined the out of gas club. It was Eddie's fault..............sort of.
I have a routine when I get home for gas use for April but the week that I met Eddie near Gadsden, I didn't figure in the extra milage and was heading to Montgomery expecting to get to my usual gas stop. Ran out of gas on I 459 at I 20......no gas stations.
Hey, did you know C50's can run on chainsaw gas????
Flagged down some tree trimmers.......

You failed to mention I also ran out of gas on the way to the 2010 rally as well :oops:
Yeah, i'm a double award winner :lol:

1) 2009, coming home from the rally we stopped to eat and gas up.
We finished eating and got on the bike and I forgot about needing gas.
Ran out just befor the I59/I20 intercahnge and had to push the bike up the side of the interstate and over an overpass while my wife flagged
traffic for me.

2) 2010, going to the rally I was just stupid and ran out of gas. I don't know what has changed but for some reason my bike is not getting near the gas millage it was getting. I think I need a valve adjustment :roll:

Anyway that's my story (stories) :D

Just as a side issue and small hijack. The gas can pictured above^^^^. I have one of those for the lawnmower and an older one with just a flex hose and a small cap. Those new ones are the most PITA nozzles I have ever come across.

Yeay, I have two large ones and they empty poorly.
That's the reason it's a symbol and not for actual use. :D :D :D

It is unlikely my name will ever grace the can. In 30+ years, never run out of gas on my bike. Now cars....well that's another thing :oops:
It's because of this statement, you'll be next! :lol: :lol:

Happened ONCE in 1973; I am easily distracted but don't like to walk. Count me out.

NO! That does not count or my name would be listed all over that lil can. I often push past the point of one blinking bar to get to that favorite gas station. I only ran out when I wasn't paying attention and started with less gas then usual.

OK...actually I got in a race with some a$$hole in traffic and forgot to get gas as planned...Feel better....ya got it out of me...OK?

No blinking lights...no coasting to the gas station (I also did that once). You have to run out of gas and walk, push the bike or flag down help. I hope none of you gets your name on it... :wink:
