If you are riding alone, but have multiple personalities...is it a group ride?

My number 1 is when someone runs out of gas because he didn't top up at the last gas stop.

I would rather taser myself than try to read an article that makes me navigate through a mind numbing amount of advertising spanning many pages to see if it was even worth reading.

Put the story on one page or I'm not going to bother.

Roger, if the Multistrada really is four bikes in one. I might have a garage sale.

The article wasn't that bad, slow news day I guess, and since I have an ad blocker, UOrigin, I didn't notice the ads at all.

All of these are sensible; spare key, tire plug kit, towing insurance coverage on the bike, when mapping out the route check for open gas stations but carry a siphon hose if you have the smallest tank, don't ride with idiots....
