There's got to be some health and safety issues with #4

I don't know why you have an issue with #4.
If I owned one I'd drill and tap 2 holes on the right side to except the pegs from the left side giving me 4 legs on the right side.
So, while riding, I could pull over, move the 2 pegs and have a picnic table.
No worries of gas spilling out or hard starting. So what's the problem?

You might be on to something TBT. It could be a veritable swiss army knife of motorcycles. The uses could be endless.

Mount knobbies, install a power inverter, carry a drill and go off into the woods and tap sugar maple trees. That thing won't get hung up on underbrush.

On the other hand I have been reading just a few days ago about e-vehicle first responder concerns. When an electric car crashes into a fixed object, the batteries can catch fire. It can take thousands of gallons of constant water flow to put the fire out. Even when on the hook of the wrecker they have a tendency to reignite, sometimes 3-4 times. The firemen tend to let the fire burn out by itself letting the entire car burn rather fight a loosing battle.

There is an orange cable that is off limits to first responders. Its orange because it carries 62v or more. Some vehicles up horsepower by increasing voltage. In some cases the are using 1,300v. So the orange cable could potentially be carrying a lethal amount of amps. If a driver is tapped inside a burning e-vehicle, the first responder would have no idea how to free him/her. That cable could be damaged in a way where it could kill anyone that comes in contact with the vehicle. Some fire departments are now training the staff on what precautions to take when arriving at the scene of one of these vehicles and what risks are present to free occupants of such vehicles.

Or, you could lay it on it it's side and weld a pulley to the sprocket and drive a giant blender for beach parties.

That is an excellent point about the 1st responders. Even though it's in their nature and they are trained to be situationally aware, their 1st thought when rolling up to a scene probably isn't wondering if car can electrocute them.
