    You're right, he was only young too. Sad.

    I pretty much always have as holding the bike perfectly upright allows me to get more fuel in.

    The only time I haven't is at track days, but as the bike is on paddock stands....

I think it had a 9 liter tank and as I'm telling the bloke this and how it doesn't take much he jams the nozzle in like a car and puts the flow on full. This resulted in a 2 ft eruption of petrol all over the bike, my crutch, him and his forecourt. This didn't change my mind about sitting on the bike.

    Petrol is not kind to Goretex etc.

    My habit is to be off the bike when I fill it. I've only sat on the bike while fueling a couple of times. I don't trust the fuel nozzles.
