More Fuel Me

Went to fill the big Aprilia this morning. Got a bit of a shock when I looked at how much it was going to cost me. 

I know fuel has gone up recently, but it wasn’t even empty, I’d stuck 5 litres in from a can when the warning light had come on the other day. The joys of having a 25 litre tank, I suppose.

I remember the first time I managed to get over ten pounds of fuel in the bike. I was my BMW R100RS and had limped into a petrol station outside Aberdeen on fumes sometime in the early 90s. 

On going inside to pay, the assistant assumed that she’d got the wrong pump, as bikes didn’t usually take that much fuel.
