Yesterday as I was calmly filling up my bike at the BP on the corner of Thompsons Road and Foote Street in Templestowe, watching three skylines screech into the carwashes and starting to play with the water. After I'd started pumping fuel, a guy came out of the petrol station and said "The woman inside asked me to tell you to take your helmet off". So as not to shoot the messanger I took my helmet off and continued filling up. When i went inside (sans helmet) the woman at the counter goes "next time take your helmet off". I asked why and she goes "oh, just in case something happens". "Like what?" I replied. Then she goes "Look, the work cover people told us that motorcyclists have to take their helmets off when filling up." I just said whatever and walked out. If she'd just said "we've been having a lot of ride-bys recently" I'd have been satisfied. Anyone else heard this sort of thing before? It's a new one on me.
