Please ignore the inane natterings from the peanut gallery. Gas caps are an issue with Thruxtons and Bonnies, the proper way of putting them on is to thread them on and tighten until you feel it stop, don't go any further like a car until you hear it click, which is what your bud did.

About the only way you're going to get that one off is with a strap wrench or some hella strong hands, they can be a real b*tch. Remember, it's not a car, don't tighten it till it clicks, just screw it on untill it stops, it won't feel tight enough at first but it won't come loose or fall off and it'll screw off fine if you follow that procedure.

Another option is the polished Alloy Monza type cap from NewBonneville.com in Texas, you screw that one on tight then it's just a press and release and the cap flips open, totally Kool old skool look for the Thrux especially.

They come in a nice cork verson, or my favorite, the Bleu Cheese Stuffed Olive style.
My young lady likes that, stuffed olives with bleu cheese or something, it's not as rancid as you'd think. Defo an aquired taste though.
