Humm, I may need to check into a hunting license

Might just do that, thanks, we will talk. I suppose one can strap a shotgun onto a GSA legally as long as its not out of its case, loaded and pointed towards the car that just cut you off.

most reliable bike in the world still has tire problems

Dang I just sold my ST 1100 and want another one already. Even with oddball tire sizes. Especially after spending all day wrenching on my BMWs. Valve adjustments... skid plate hell to change oil,...

you didn't, right?

I'm not laughing, I'm scared for you with the right hand issue you have. The bike is incredibly forgiving until you exceed certain laws of physics.
