First time it happened it was at night when I was camping - put a bit of fear in me. I was hoping it was just a moose - although not the best thing to run into at night.

Center stand hits speed bumps (we have a lot in the Philippines). Last night I was with my wife and it grazed the road as well when we were leaning on a turn.

It also helps if you don't close the throttle in the corner...steady does it!

Does anyone know why it makes the moo sound? Mine does it all the time. Even if I haven't ridden it for a month (as in now, in the middle of winter).

Gas tank vent. If there's anything that can be done about it, I sure haven't hard.

Ha ha - first time I heard it I was camping and it was pitch black outside. I grabbed my knife and flashlight ready for whatever was lurking. It was my bike - and no - I didn't stab it.

I think there is a little flap of rubber or something that makes it real farty sounding.

For trhe gas tank moo, would an aftermarket filler cap work? The the replacement race caps you see on other sport bikes.
