I prefer to stay on my bike when I fuel,
I can gauge the level in the tank and squeeze the handle easier.
Today while getting gas the attendant came on the speaker and told me
"to get off my bike!"

This is the second time she has done this.
I researched Idaho laws and Fred Meyer policy...
there is nothing that says I have to get off my bike!
She said she saw a video where someone caught on fire while sitting on their bike. (GMAB)
I tapped the speaker and told her to not get her education from Youtube. :twisted:
So how do you prefer to fuel? ~M

I always stand, center the bike, and fuel up standing while ON the bike. I know it's as full as it gets, then, these 1800's need EVERY DROP! :yikes:

I always stay on the bike to fill it up. Yes, it lets me fill up the bike totally full but I do it mainly because I am more comfortable filling while sitting on the bike than standing beside it.:dontknow:

I stay on the bike as well. I sit back on the rear of the rider's seat, almost on the passenger seat. I'm tall so I can pull this balancing act off just fine. I like to fill 'er up as much as I can and you can't do that with the bike on the sidestand. Now... to be safe, I should probably at least put the sidestand out even while I'm sitting on the bike. I'll "work" on that... :popcorn:

I always get off.

If I screw up, I'm going to dump gas in my crotch, and also dump gas all over a hot motor.

I don't want to be on Youtube :yikes:

I like to have the bike level otherwise it's over half a gallon short of full. I straddle it and hold it upright with my legs. Kinda like the best of both worlds, you get a full tank and if you spill it doesn't end in your lap. :thumbup:

So is that standing or remaining on the bike?

That's just priceless. :mrgreen:

I stay on, standing up so bike is vertical, and top it to just a pimple above the bottom of the filler neck. Haven't had gas-crotch yet.
