That's another 35 lbs. sitting behind your front wheel.
There are places, in the western states, that are over 150 miles between stations. 100 + miles between gas stops are common. When traveling I always carry an extra gallon, just in case.
One place I gassed up and 30 miles down the road there was a sign sayinG NEXT GAS 110 MILES, had to gas up with only 30 miles on full tank...
Another time I stopped for gas at 120 miles and the power was out, someone had ran into the local electrical substation, no gas available. 60 mile to next station, 70 back to the last one. Completely out of gas 20 miles short of the next station. The extra gallon saved me a long walk.
I can't seem to win the lottery. I think I have used up all of my good luck riding motorcycles.
