One of the teenage-prick-spoiled-brats in a jacked up F150 came around a corner drifting and spraying mud and saw my bright lights coming at him. He almost lost it in the ditch trying to get it back under control and as soon as it straightened up, he floored it again.
Karma?

Backroads off the highway about 120 on a tank. I never had any issues with fuel out west but I won't go back without a 5 gal tank

I made the levee ride and the Meridian ride with a stock DRZ tank. On the levee ride I had to get into my MSR fuel bottle, but just for about 5 miles.

I'm thinking I'll be on the Tenere this year, so I'll have a few gallons to spare

Well I just don't understand about running out of fuel---Doesn't everyone have approx 8 =+ gallons in their tank

I guess I will be there but depends on the "customers' requests"

might even try some different tires out
