When I am finished pumping gas, I have to walk around the bike to remount it. Seems logical to me! Or am I a missing something?
There ain't nothing to it, I don't even put down the sidestand most times.
Pull in kill bike, get card out of sleeve pocket, open gas cap while pump is being auth. Fill up, put back nozzle, close cap zero trip meter and go.
For the longest time I always thought it hurt my joints more getting off the bike (pins and needle tingles from a part getting fresh blood, that was restricted) so I would just stay on for most fuel stops. Once I rode with a bunch of guys that fueled on the run,
they were airforce guys. They did it in planes flying over 100mph, so the truck to bike fuel transfer was cake for them. (Wingmen MC)
I've done all the gymnastic's on a bike you'll ever care to see, stand, stand on seat, back seat, side saddle, one knee etc. (I haven't tried the one Joe showed me yet. Sitting on back seat back rest flipped to use as a resting pad for your chest)
I'll just try the break thing, maybe stretch while I'm on break smoking a cigar.
