    Smelling Gas on the G/S

    I just received a recall notification for my K1300S -- and apparently the G/S is included here -- for a weak fuel pump bracket that can cause a fuel line to break loose. Not sure if it applies to...

    What Does G/S Stand For?

    Hit & Run

    The right answer is to move on but I can't help but think that the POS that hit you will have no problem doing this again. How someone can walk away from his fellow man in your state -- especially...
