Ya, like any advice, not all this is going to apply to everyone, everywhere. Your mileage may vary.
Ranette, I recommend not getting a receipt at the gas station because I ride in full gear all year long, and I assume most safe riders do. When I’m in full gear, taking a receipt out of the machine and finding a place to unzip/velcro/stuff it (with my gloves on) is a pain. Especially when it’s 110 F outside or more, seconds of immobility are worth a lot to me. My tool kit is under the pillion, so it’s a snap to access. Everyone is entitled to use their own system, that’s just what works for me.
Eon, good to see you are still around the forum. Good point on the sunglasses. I suppose I didn’t consider that because I wear prescription glasses already, so I’ve never had that option. As for the rain, my bike (electronics) and my gear (leather) HATES water. Nobody wears rain gear in AZ!
