When I was in Texas every store had a sign saying it was illegal to enter with a concealed weapon. They should have those signs at the servo's so we can leave our helmets on. Just a picture of a gun with a red circle and cross through it would suffice.

Seriously?

After reading this thread I am surprised they serve bike riders at all.

Thanks for making people think bike riders are inconsiderate tossers you guys who want to publicly act like little children.

Stand in line at a servo behind someone wearing a helmet and you realise they just look like an arrogant cock. Burquas, helmets, drive offs etc will eventually lead to having to pay first, as in other countries and that will be shit!!! Appreciate the smaller freedoms we have here before we lose them further..

But I recon its only about 1% who don't know how to follow simple rules.
It's not even the rules Trev, it's plain common courtesy that is lacking. Morally we are becoming a corrupt society with all the 'it's my right' bullshit. Show a bit of respect for the kid or person behind the counter doing their job. Bring on retina scanning and prepaying before they turn the pump on I say

Personally, I think petrol is too expansive. Also, I read on Chanel #10 that methanol can kill you in Thai Land, so I don't want any in my tank. It stinks.

BTW does the subsidance to convert your petrol vehicle to the LPG mean the same for bikers? Yes? Who can you recommend for my postie rescue bike?

When I worked in a servo, you'd always fill the bikes up, though sometimes the rider would do it himself cause he didn't trust you to not overfill it and spill it on the hot engine. They would always pay you and not leave before you brung them the change. Cheapskates.

Anyways, thats how I remember it, though it probably wasn't as good as I remember it was.

So, take your helmet off, put your branded cap on to hide your helmet hair, Say hello to the attendant and smile, after all you're are enjoying yourself more than all those morons in cages aren't you?

At the moment woolworths has it but doesnt turn it on for all cards.
Because they want us in the shop spending more money on stuff we didn't intend to buy, can't have us buying fuel and just whizzing off again without emptying our wallets/bank accounts as much as possible.

I tried my card at a Caltex/Woolworths one day because it said they accept Visa at the pump, but it turns out I have to link my Visa card to one of their own loyalty cards so they can track my purchases if I want to use the pump pay system.

I always took my helmet off, it wasn't a hassle until I had to wear glasses now depending on the helmet I'm wearing it's a PITA. But as long as there are real problems in the world this thread is pathetic

Usa has pay before but it has pay at the pump, this would be a win for motorcyclists as you dont remove helmet for pay at the pump.
