Last evening, after Anushka’s birthday party, I rode out with a couple of friends to downtown Plesanton. Suminder was riding with me on his BMW 1150GS and Shobhit drove there in his Porsche Carrera 4 Cabriolet. Shobhit is an avid moto-enthusiast, looking to buy his first motorcycle very soon.
The ride was mostly uneventful, following the evening traffic at 45-50mph. There was one interesting moment though — when the DR came onto reserve. I could feel the engine cutting out and knew that I should turn it over onto reserve, but going 50mph and bending over to find the fuel cock is not easy. In the end I had to pull over, put it onto reserve and get back onto the road. Note to myself: I need to get familiar with the fuel cock location. It’s certainly not going to be fun on a freeway.
