Check the Fuel Tap!

When going on a ride, after suiting up with all the right Safety gear, set the choke and firing up the FT, it pays to check the fuel tap. Otherwise you get a couple of streets from home before the beast stops, for no reason. Sure it ‘may’ be disguised as stalling from being cold and the idle set low and that constant cranking will see the battery flat. Its also very difficult to push start a bike on a wet road. After pushing the bike home, stripping off of the gear and then running 10 minutes late to a meeting, you realise you had turned the fual tap off on the last ride and forgot to turn it on 🙁 Stupid 🙁 1 day of the permit down for about 500 metres of riding.
