I do the same thing when I start up the bike....habitturn it back ON. If you have a furnace in your garage you do not want gas on the floor under your bike. Friend of mine lost his garage ,tools, and 5 vintage Bultacos making that mistake one time.

Ah but in the 60/70s I had a memory that worked
So maybe a sticker on the gas tank for us old farts EH!
