I don't get off my bike at all when I refuel. And I've never taken my helmet off when refuelling.

I think this is on topic: it's about getting off the seat.

All pumps here in Honduras are full service, meaning there are people that pump for you. I don't mind dismounting to give the guy a little extra room to do his job.

We used to have pump attendants back in the day...and those rubber hoses that would ring a bell in the workshop when someone rode over them. As kids, we'd jump on them then run away....


I'd still do it now, if I saw one....:745: I'm easily amused....

Not only do I flip up the front of my modular helmet and dismount, I also put the bike up on the center stand!  Flipping up the front of the helmet makes it a lot easier to see down and is more comfortable on hot days.  Dismounting makes it easier to get to my wallet for my debit card and to put away the receipt as well as giving me a chance to stretch my legs.  Using the center stand puts the tank filler hole on top to allow filling the tank to the maximum safe level and adds consistency from fill up to fill up for accurate MPG calculations.

Yes, I'm OCD... why do you ask?

 :745: yeah I would say so!

I have my own fair share of quirks as well.  :821:
