my GS500F, I used to get tingly in the hands, too. I do think, just like the others, it’s an issue of relaxing the grip and the elbows. I always think back to the BBM article about keeping your hands and arms relaxed enough so that you can flap your elbows like a chicken. The spot for grip and firmness is in the legs. That will also keep your back supported without resting your weight on the wrists. Helped me immensely this second season when I scooted my feet back more on the pegs, closer to the balls of the feet instead of toward the middle of the foot. Made a world of difference in my comfort and confidence. Best of luck to ya.
