in australia they require helmet removal and fillup off the bike..

helmet off as security cameras aim at front of vehicles
and bikes have no front plates, off the bike fillups
to avoid drops thus petrol spills/possible ignition
thru sparks and up in flames..

similar with banks, no helmets on inside..

ive always taken helmet/gloves off and filled up
standing alongside the bike on its stand..
reason; it suits me, that way..

Yeah I take my bucket off sometimes when fueling but I always take my gloves off. Don't like them smelling like gas. I also end up wiping off the tank cause sometimes you get some mist on there when fueling or when pulling out the nozzle. But everyone has their thing, man.
Thanks for the vid, sir.
Man I cant wait for this weekend and the cold weather to snap!

I always take off my helmet and gloves as well. I also wipe off the mist of fuel that sprays around the area.

Reminds me, I probably haven't refueled in close to a month's time. Weather came in the way, and haven't been riding as much.

I normally stay sitting on the bike so I can get as much fuel as possible in the tank. 'Pay at the pump' machines are getting popular here now which means you don't have to go inside to pay necessitating helmet removal.
