At the gas station, do you stay on the bike or get off the bike to fill your tank?
I will generally stay on the bike, grab the hose and fill. I can keep the bike upright and fill the tank right up full. I've never had a problem with that in the past from a station attendant. That is, until this morning...
I put in my card, select my amount, go to fill the tank and over the intercom the attendant says that she will not turn the pump on until I got off the bike. In my head I was thinking, "WTF motherfucker, turn on the pump. I need to get to work". I put the nozzle back. Got off my bike and walked inside. Asked what the problem was and she said that it was against the law to sit on the bike and fill the tank. I have to be off the bike.
"Oh rilly!?" says I. "Ok. Cancel the transaction please. I'll go fill up somewhere else."
I left and continued on to work. I'll get gas later.
So...first I ask, are you on or off the bike when you fill?
Secondly...I've never heard it was against the law to fill up while sitting on the bike. Is that true!?! I think she was full o shite. What say you?
