Petrol stations, removing helmets

Why don't we make a stand?????????????????

Lets stop using petrol stations that for some reason seem to believe all bikers are guilty until proven innocent.

I'm going to make a start of petrol stations demanding the removal of helmets before filling.

The BP petrol station at the top of Churwell hill, Morley, West Yorkshire.

All Morrison’s.

Keep this thread going please. It’s really pissing me off now.

Removing helmet

In (almost) 34 years of riding I have never been asked to remove my helmet in a petrol station.

Maybe I just have an aura of innoncence about me :biggrin:

I've been asked

before... and I understand the reasons, It's not the end of the world to remove it really except when i'm on my way to work at 5am, it's cold and i'm all snug in the lid the last thing I wanna do is remove it and at that time of day they never ask me too

I used to get very angry about it and I found the best way to piss them off is to throw the nozzle onto the floor, remount and ride off.... But really.....

...Is it worth it??

I was once in a petrol station and a little scooter c*nt in a track suit pulled up and filled up at the next pump.. he gave me a nod like to say 'hey.. we're all bikers eh?'.. He filled up and rode off without paying and giving me a nod as if to say 'hey.. you saw nothing right mate?'...

I gave his number plate to the cashier... Little fucking twat.. and i'd punch the cunt if I ever saw him again! cunts like him are the reason we have to remove lids!

I take it off anyway mostly. I have occasionally used an open face one and left it on without a problem, but I tend to use the same filling station most of the time and they recognise me (or the bike) anyway.

Only been asked once

when paying, so removed my lid, placed it on their sweet display next to the till, as no-where else to put it (and it wasn't going on the floor).

Got my wallet out, paid, picket up the lid, and unfortunately most of his sweet display came with it and fell on the floor. Ooohps...

like to set the record straight. Not all Morrisons. I've never been asked to remove my helmet at the pumps at my local Morrisons. Always remove it when entering the shop, so not sure whether that's the difference.
