All gratuities,gifts and salutations will be accepted.  Laughing  Today I'm officially 66 and headin for 84 (at the least). The Road Weerier got me home with a minimum of low speed shakin.Disassembly and diagnosis to start soon to determine WHY this front end tendency, to start a tank slapper, is happenin at 20-25 mph.I left most of my camp gear in Castlegar to lighten the load but it really didn't alleviate the problem.In fact the tremour was just noticeable at 40mph too.
Havin a bit of trouble gettin this computer up to speed after 2 mos. of rest.Damn slow.
Twas good to see those that made it to The Toad and Horsethief.Wish that I could have got more ridin around done but really didn't want to push my luck or put myself through the anxiety of wonderin if the scoot was gonna strand me somewhere.
Til next we meet face ta face,ride safe.

Probably your races and bearings could be done Den…..with all the weight that your bike carries maybe the bearings are wasted.

Those bearings were new this spring and reset at Toad.Bearing spacer was resized,fork oil changed,all nuts/bolts on scoot tightened,shocks checked for equal preload and swingarm checked for slop.

Races and bearings were new in Nov.2013. Installation documented here in my re & re thread.gonna pull my front wheel and recheck the bearing spacer in the hub.I had to guestimate it's length at Toad when I was shortenin it.There wasn't a dial guage or vernier to be found.
