and you have disabled the idiot warning of the bike choking and sputtering and telling you that you should have been watching the trip counter and stopped for gas 10 miles back, but flip on the reserve and here you go 20+ more miles second chance now start looking,

I was going to say I pay close attention and go to the gas station at 100 miles like clockwork but I did once run out of gas on the side of the interstate in Missouri. State Trooper picked me up and drove me to the nearest station. Good people out there in Missouri
Leaving the petcock in anything but the off position when parked can allow gas to make it's way to the crankcase, diluting the oil and washing the oil film off the cylinder wall if the float valve leaks/sticks.
When my engine starts to sputter, then I'll flip it to reserve and note what my odometer reading is. I know I have at least 30 more miles before I'm out of gas. I also flip it to reserve for a few minutes if the bike sat out in a rain. More than once it sputtered because the gas had some water in it.
