He borrowed some tools from his cousin, removed the tank, dumped the diesel and drained the fuel lines and float bowls. Borrowed a gallon of gas, back to the gas station for a proper fill, and we were on our way with no ill effects.

I still tease him about that. Of course I have done many other stupid things on a bike so he teases me right back.
