    I don't know - maybe because it is a personal interaction and they dealing with you face-to-face, but here in NJ the majority of attendants are quite considerate of bike riders: very often shake out the nozzle of accumulated spillage before handing it to me. Really, I never have an issue.

    With the cars, as others here wrote, I enjoy the fact that someone else is getting dirty. I do not enjoy filling up out of state, then driving with my hands reeking of gas. A lot of the self-service stations do not even have the courtesy of maintaining a paper towel dispenser.

    If you can't fill up your car without getting it all over your hands and have them "reeking of gas", you're doing it wrong.

    So go out and search for some Dragon Pics and post them. There are lots out there.

    Oh I do like this picture I found. No fails here other than a funky color shift. It is how I enjoy my time in the mountains there, pretty much on empty roads.

    ... And the hideous back rest. :1drink

    Seriously, What the hell is that thing. It looks like the seat off a potty trainer.

    Yeah I over looked that thinking of spring/summer and being there. I know I have a Stealth backrest that goest on the K12RS for the wife from time to time. Might that be the backrest for a Corbin seat and it does make for less drag that way.. LOL.

    Head's in the opposite lane. Might get taken off by the invisible semi coming the other way.

    I was thinking about that but about two joints higher up.. Can I really still spread that wide? :eek1

    At first I was worried that perhaps that little bike was holding up traffic. But looking again it looks like what is probably a Harley Hauling trailer back there so they would be used to following behind slow traffic.
