Frequently "factory fresh" bikes have gas caps that become slightly siezed due to the new plastic and recently pressed metal. Get a propane torch. Gently warm the gas cap with the torch, using a circular motion. At some point the gas cap is sure to come off the tank.

Or. call the dealer in the morning.

Some people might actually do it.

Martimus! Ken is joking. DO NOT take a gas torch anywhere near your gas tank. Trust me on this.
Ya know...I sat there for a minute or two thinking maybe I should add a disclaimer...then I said nah, nobody can be that dumb! Then again, they do have to put the "WARNING, GASOLINE IS FLAMMABLE" stickers on bikes.

Instead, fill the bottom six inches of an ordinary household pan with lightweight oil. Put the pan on the stove and apply heat. Add sliced potatos and cook until golden brown. Eat the fried potatos and consume beer until the dealership opens.
