I'm a petrol head (though the Top Gear wouldn't agree - never owned an Alpha and not likely to...). I am not ashamed at this. But this morning I am finding out that you can go too far, and am still paying the price...
Filling the bike up with feul the rubber hose spring suddenly sprang having the effect of both ripping the nozzle out of the tank, and forcing the lever into my hand spraying fuel all over my bike.
Ten minutes of rinsing the bike down I noticed that my nice, new, expensive, red and white Dianese gloves were also damp. So much for keeping them looking good as long as posible :(
So now I am sitting at my desk stinking of petrol. Feel sorry for those I work with - it's an open office :)
