Anti-bike petrol stations

I commute between Cardiff and Bristol and use the Tesco's near UHW as its convenient for me. They have told me in the past i should take my lid off as its company policy but the amount of times i have seen kids going in and being served wearing hoodies and baseball caps, and even muslim women wearing their full face veils without being told to remove them!!! The only other petrol station on my route is a Shell garage that charges an extra 4-5p per litre!!! I always 'pay at pump' now and they loose my custom on anything else i might have bought if i had gone into the petrol station to pay and i don't even have to get off my bike!

Petrol Stations...

..Look lads, if you have put in the fuel on the forecourt and entered the garage to pay, you could be standing there starkers with a full face on but they will still take your money, if they don't...ask em what they think of this when you slap it on the counter, don't forget to ask for change!

Petrol stations

I worked at a busy "A Road" petrol service station for 18 months and never had one biker ride off without paying, even during the Bulldog Bash. But once a day (at least) some git driving a car did exactly that. Bikes are not the problem, it's the attitudes of those who don't ride them that is.

Having shopped at my local Sainsbury's in HAVERHILL (Suffolk)for a decade, and therefore having put over £50,000 in their tills, I was furious to be handed a grotty little slip of paper telling me I was now considered a "security risk"unless I remove my helmet. I have already asked them if I look like a security risk in my summer dress and sandals and whether I'd be one if I were black or were wearing the hijaab but the gormless, brainwashed idiots who work there merely say, "Oh I don't have an opinion: the management says you are a security risk." Well. I now wear a balaclava under my lid when I fill up the bike, and my son wears a helmet when he fills up his car. I find the allegation against me wholly offensive.

Petrol Stations

Petrol Stations her in the Colonies :lol: are basically a free-for-all around the pumps with anything from a Scooter up to Lorries contending for an open pump.

Most of the stations I frequent don't mind me entering the store with my helmet on as long as the face is visible, which mine is via the Caberg Justissimo Helmet I wear.
