Out of Gas or something else?
This morning, while riding to work, my bike started to "lurch." It was a bit unstable, as in I thought I might "launch"...probably because I was NOT expecting the lurching! I'm wondering if being low on gas would cause this or should I be looking at something else? My bike does not have an Empty/Full gas gauge, just the tripometer. I usually just fill it up every few days. I'd gone approx. 57 miles since last filling the tank. The bike was warm when this happened, and I was doing about 40-45 mph. I'm a little nervous for the ride home now. Is there something I should look into on the bike this weekend? I'm a newbie, so I apologize if this is a "no-brainier." Also, since I don't have a fuel gauge, is there a good way to tell when I'm getting close to needing to fill?
My bike is a 2006 Yamaha V-Star Classic Silverado.
