Why?

Recommended Posts

Been to fill up at my local Asda petrol station, I always fill up while still sat on the bike and never remove my helmet this has never been a problem in the past but as i go to pay the kiosk attendant said new policy has just come in and all bikers must remove helmets and must get off their bikes to refuel Huh . Although its a pain I can understand the helmet removal policy but getting off the bike to refuel? thats a new one on me! So after saying no problem there is plenty of other service stations to choose from he said he wouldn't personally implement the policy but some others might, Its all just a load of Boll censored cks! scratch Surely if a bike only has a side stand there is a greater risk of fuel spillage so i can't see the reasoning behind the policy angry

But why get off the bike Gaz? the 3 seconds it takes to get on the bike and ride off without paying (if thats the reasoning) seems a bit of a ridiculous policy to me.

He probably being a tw@t today an took it out on you. was the policy posted up anywhere so you could see it, I used to just put me helmet just on the top of me head never ad a problem like this, they just want the camera to look at your face coz you aint got a number plate on the front of the bike, next time go in your car with your crash helmet on and see what he says Laughing
