I know that it goes on the gas tank! But when you're filling the gas tank, where does it go?

I just took my first ride on my new Stryker today. When I stopped for gas, I found myself standing there holding the gas cap with no place to put it! I didn't want to put it on the seat (but that's probably what I'll do in the future). I ended up placing it on the ground next to the bike. My last bike had a hinged gas cap - very convenient.

So where do you put yours while filling the tank?

Excellent topic, I've had the same problem. I put it on the curb around the pump the first few times and just use the seat now. I've tried to be careful, but it's probably only a matter of time until I get some on there. I'll have to give this some thought now that I know that others have some kind of plan.

Same here... just sit it on the pump. Once you're done hang up the hose and grab the cap and roll on.
+1 And with the key in it it would be pretty hard to forget it.

I also put mine on top of the pump. I was annoyed by this at first because I also ride a sport bike and the gas caps on those just flip up.

Since I never get off my bike to pump the gas, I usually look down and find a clean spot at the base of the pump to set it down with the key in it. When done pumping, I pick it up make sure no dirt is on it and put it back on the tank.

My last bike had a flip cap, sure do miss that... but not a biggie... :p

Not sure if it works for the Stryker, but on my raider the gas cap fits perfectly in the gap between the brake lever and throttle.

IN New Jersey, I just get Habib to hold it. Truthfully I put it in my front pocket just enough to hold it at the top and not get lint on it. That way its annoying enough that I wont forget to put it back.

I really though this post was a joke at first, but with all the responses I guess it's ligit. Mine goes on the gas pump with my key in it. Not going anywhere after that unless I put it back on.
