If that Indian falls down, the gravity waves will ripple throughout the known universe.

Nah, I meant what you might tell that kindly LEO looking down at you.  ;) ;D

And of course, for the studio audience: I am kidding Jim a bit here. Not wishing him to have any type of mishap, motorcycle or otherwise. Sometimes these things do not quite make the printed page but I think we have known each other, from this forum and other correspondence, for what, 10 years now? Anyway, all in good humor and jest, no malice whatsoever... but Jim already knew that, I am sure.

Almost totally off topic but... my 2017 Ducati Multistrada 950 does not have self cancelling turn signals but is has just about every other electronic ride control and data gizmo. One of the controls for the 473 item multi function menu is the turn signal cancel button. If you press it with a turn signal active it just cancels the signal. If you press it with no turn signal active it activates the RIDE MODE MENU. On the 155 mile ride home from the Ducati dealer (in downtown N'Awlins) I discovered that I have developed a habit of cancelling turn signals after ever intersection, whether I turned or not. It is a habit that makes  self cancelling turn signals unnecessary but I am now having to break the habit.

I do that on the Conc.  It's just a habit I picked up in the early years.  I'll press the button going down a straight road.  I even do it on the Indian and it self cancels.

I do too.  I find I will often cancel more than once just to make sure I did.  I would HATE for the cancel button to be used for any other purpose.... that would be a design/UI failure.

+1 and +1. After hearing about this STS system, seems like any motorcycle such as our Multistrada's that has an IMU should have this system for self canceling. I also developed the habit a long time ago. Every time I release the clutch from a standstill, I cancel out of habit as well as every intersection weather I stop or turn or not.
