tank bubbles?

i'm sure the answer to my question is here somewhere, but i can't find it.
i'm looking at an 06 Adventure with bubbling on the right side of the tank.
i'm just anal enough to not want to ride around with bubbles on the tank,but
poor enough to maybe be stuck with it, if there is not a reasonable fix.
so..........is there a reasonable fix, and if not, what is the "cost is no
option" fix?
thanks in advance.

you can play shuffleboard for five years and age ten, or ride a motorcycle for ten years and age five.

My reasonable fix: peel the fkn decals off

I did one side, now the other side has a big ol' bubble and it's time to take the heat gun to it and peel it off.

Doesn't look too bad, right?
