That got me thinking

By way of a joke you should ask if the Securior/Cash Courier needs to remove their helmet when depositing/collecting cash. That might stumble them.:ph43r:

Tesco, Every little helps!

Well I've had similar problems with Tesco, however Customer Services said they were not aware of any problem when I contacted them. I drew their attention to the fact that their stores appeared on both the Anti bike petrol station list and on the Pro bike list which seemed to invalidate any so called company policy. Bottom line here TESCO ARE ANTI BIKE, don't know why so I now shop at ASDA and my god their meat is 10 times better. So thanks TESCO for pointing me in the right direction, as you say EVERY LITTLE HELPS!!!

This is an easy one.....

...just buy your petrol, go in to pay, if they ask you to remove your lid tell em no, they will still take your money as you've already had their petrol. I have to say that the local Sainsburys where i live is exellent for bikers for petrol, the store is shite but the garage is good.

Stroud, Glos

No problems here. Lid worn throughout refueling and payment in the shop. No comments from till staff, no problem at all.

Boogie man Syndrome

Maybe in the 70's the helmet was the armed robbers attire, but today the uk are so pc it drives me mad. I work in a petrol station & wouldn't dream of asking them to take their lids off,(even before i became a biker) they already have the fuel and what security reason do you need to see there face when all i need to see is the money?? funny about the security guard though!!

so... just take it off

Like it or not, a biker with his helmet on is intimidating to others. We should be doing our best to represent ourselves in a positive and friendly manner to others. Taking off a helmet and gloves takes half a minute at most, and maybe a couple of minutes to put back on. What's the big deal?

Tescos

Once you have fueled they have to take your money, lid on or not.
