Before cell phones a Bud who lived in Clearwater spent the night on that bridge in the rain. Headed home his HD ran out of fuel, since he was from Chi-town he knew the bike would disappear if he left it. A lawn maint guy gave him fuel in the AM.

At least you didn't get stuck on Alligator Alley. That is one lonely & long road with no help.
Soon as i get some good bags for the bike. Im going to be heading across it. Ive always wanted to ride to miami. I got friends that go regularly.

That would be a legendary ride. Then Miami to Key West for the night. It would make a memorable few days on the road.

Ran the trail many times when I lived in Naples had a friend with a shack & a boat on Marathon Key.
Bout midway across the trail there is a rest area also a gas station nearby.
Stop @ the station it is next to a canal where a bunch of gators hang out waiting for food from travelers. Keep a lookout for the Giant Egrets bike pipes will spook them I have had them take wing & fly at me.
If you need to stop on the highway stay close to the road your crossing a swamp = snakes.
Luck.
Clarification: Old west coast FL residents call I-75 "the trail" the interstate became the main route to the east coast instead of hwy 41 the Tamiami trail .
I-75 is commonly referred to as "Alligator Alley".

Or you could come down Tamiami Trail which is a little further south but has more stops a little cool places like Joannie's Crab Café, wildlife centers, national park rest stops & camp grounds.
If you do decide to head to the Keys hit me up as that is a great ride and literally a ton of small bars & restaurants all over on the waterfront. Prepare to sweat.

I live deep south. In between Kendall and Homestead in a town called Cutler Bay. I usually don't ride during the week because I get up early, tons of traffic, use the car during the day to pick stuff up and stay late at work. But for sure I will hit you up.

The bike is not a device like a car that is released when the fuel runs out. You could easily refuel with a bottle and reach your destination.
