The one thing I've found in the US though is that the pumps don't recognise UK credit/debit cards, even my 'World wide' credit card, so I just stick to cash.

I find that if you go into the station and pay inside (instead of the pump) then UK cards tend to work ok. Just tell em you want $20 or whatever and they sort it. Could be problematic if they want a zip code but never been asked for that myself.

I've started wearing my neck tube as a niqab, makes putting helmet on and taking it off easier, any other issues I should be aware of  :107: :008:

Here in italy i've never had such these problems.
I go to the gas station and i ( almost always ) pay with credit / debit card , but i always keep my helmet on. I take it off only if i have to go to pay inside, just because i don't want to seem a robber. No one has never complained with me or my brother or my friends ( which keep the same behaviour ) about this. Maybe they trust us.

Well be all happy guys, in switzerland it's asked that you remove the helmet to go inside a fueling station,
they must be able to see your face, so I either wear my flipup if I will be a lot in stations, or go to fuel
automats, with no damn people  :008:.

There also exists some filtered neck tubes.

I like the idea of walking around in " the buff " hopefully it will catch on.

Here in Ontario, Canada it's hard to find pumps don't have the pay at pumps anymore.  But around my area they don't mind if you go into the stores with helmets on.  I'm not in a big city though.
