After filling up, I started the bike -- kick start, mounted up, flipped up the kick stand, and away we went. The bike seemed light. I looked over my shoulder and Nina was standing next to the gas pump.

When I pulled back up to the pump, the cowboys were in convulsions of laughter.
OK, this has to be the funniest story so far
