Far 3ast said:I have to admit, with a little shame at my disregard for safety, that I have done this before. It was a long time ago, my sportster (with a king size peanut tank) towing a friend's sportster (with the little peanut). He had switched his fuel valve to reserve and we decided that he should see how many miles he could get on the reserve before he ran outta gas (good information to know with a tank that only holds 2.2 gal). After he ran it outta gas, we tied some 550 cord to my sissy bar (rigid mounted, not detachable) and he wrapped it around his handlebar a few turns and held the end in his throttle hand. I towed him a mile or two to the nearest fuel stop, and as we were getting close to the station he let go of his end of the two rope and it unraveled and he coasted on in to the gas station.
