"Always found that mildly amusing. I'd ride up to the pump and the attendant would take the nozzle off the pump and hand it to me!"


Same in NJ....

It's common place these days. Hell I've never had that not happen. Well except the times that I roll up, get off the bike, grab the pump and look at the attendant and say "thanks I got this".

With tongue in cheek, I say the gas problem is over although premium might be a bit tough.

I was told yesterday afternoon by one of our trials riders heading north that once one left the Raleigh-Durham, NC area "gas was everywhere!"

Another rider still in Fayetteville, NC said "It's still crazy down here!  Some lady is yelling at me right now!"
"There's two kinds of people in the world; those for whom no explanation is necessary, and those for whom no explanation is possible."

For the most part this crisis is over in central NC. But don’t worry, with gas over  buck higher a gallon than a few months ago, the next crisis is well on its way. 🤔😂😂

and....its getting harder and harder for me to find 90 octane non ethenol fuel for the Stelvio.  The few stations around me that carry it are out a lot of time lately!

Strange.  When my local station was having a hard time getting fuel, the only grade they could get was 93 Non-Ethanol.  Now they have all 3 grades Non-Ethanol.  I guess you should have topped off in Tracy City.
