You joke, but I was riding through some northern California back roads in a group of six, and when we pulled over at an intersection we noticed that the #4 rider wasn't there. Now we were on tiny national forest roads, paved roughly but barely a single-lane wide, and there was literally no way anyone could've passed him without noticing. There were no other side roads, and no place to have pulled over without being seen.
Confused, we retraced our steps, and found the rider standing on the road, helmet off and bike nowhere to be seen.
He then pointed off the side of the road, and we saw his K1200LT sitting about 15 feet down a slight slope, in a pile of brush. Fortunately, the rider wasn't hurt, and it took all six of us to haul that bike back up the slope and back onto the road.
That was a weird one, to be sure...

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full.
All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
