I get to the station with about 1/4 tank on my 125. I wasn’t aware of the emergency fills but always thought that I could probably find some fuel in Baling if I was desparate. I might also mention that the station on N/S 7 that you mention has been closed if I get there too early or too late. At least that was the case last year.[/quote]
No worries…How do you think I know that? Doh!
The motorcycle repair place in Baling has fuel, as well as both convenience stores and one of the hotels. They keep fuel for their service vehicles at the top of Beihen, and also at that little ranger station about 25kms east of Baling.
We found this out about 15 years ago when MAW, Wookie, an Australian friend and myself went up for a weekend camping trip and decided to take the old road back toward Neiwan from Baling. Back then the last filling stop was just before Tzuhu. The old road toward Neiwan from Baling is not only really far, but also usually in bad shape. On this trip, we had to walk our bikes over a really huge landslide, which, once crossed there was no return. About 20km later, we stopped in this tiny mountain village all running on fumes. Expecting to be pushing our bikes for the remainder of our journey, we inquired about fuel, never expecting this village of less than a hundred people to have any. “You want 92 or 95?” the old Aboriginal Granny asked, and we watched with great humor as this ancient toothless wonder began sucking the gas out of a barrel, through a hose and into our tanks spilling nary a drop.
