Just in the last few weeks I have noticed that BP service station attendents starting to insist that I get off the bike when fuelling up. This is starting to annoy me somewhat. Unless the bike is held upright, it won't fill properly. Can fit about an extra 2.5 litres of fuel into the tank when the bike is held upright, as opposed to sitting on its sidestand. Then I have these BP station attendants telling me to get off the bike, so I can't fill it properly. I have my helmet and gloves off, in plain view, so there's no chance of a petrol ride-off taking place. I get in, and they tell me it's for my own safety. I respond that I've been doing it for 20 years, and it's never been a problem yet... Man, this world of public liability catering to the lowest common denominator of idiot, really pisses me off.
