How many miles once the fuel light's on?

I tried to RTFF, as well as RTFM... even searched the site via google but can't find this simple answer. How many miles do you get once the fuel light comes on? Just curious...

It'll vary depending on how fast you ride. On the track it's a lot less range - but on the road you should be able to go at least 15 miles on reserve.

Always set your trip meter to zero after filling up, so you know roughly how much range you have left before the fuel light will come on.
