Random hitchhiker, no. A broken-down bike on the side of the road and a guy (or girl, has actually happened a few times) half-mile up the road with a helmet, sure. I've done that half a dozen times.

Swapping is one thing. 'Let me ride your bike" is another altogether. It's a total dick move by him to ask to borrow a bike. If you can use the insurance angle to get out of it gracefully, I'd do it.

40-ish mpg is pretty standard for the 1100 series. More like 35 if you're riding like a complete jackass (which I do frequently). I've seen as low as 25 at a track day.
