Check with a dealer to see if any press launch bikes are left. There were about 20 total on the launch. The dealers get them thru dealer auction. Probably 500-1,500 miles on them.

Mine does too, but on smooth pavement at higher speeds with rollers in it, when the suspension settles and slightly compresses, the feeling goes away and smoothes out.
