An update

So, got the tires mounted and still had a shake a 50 mph that made me not want to go any faster.

Options: 1) Drive below 50. 2) Fix the issue.

Tore the front off the bike and found the lower race was badly scored from the bearings. Still need to remove the pressed on race from the steering stem and reinstall the new bearings.

Injured my back on Friday and wasted most of the weekend laying on the floor hoping it would get better. Still have to remove the race and reinstall the bearings.

Found that front caliper was dragging on the disc while I was tearing it all down, so that diagnosis and repair will be next up.

Prediction re: riding time-- May should be a lot of fun.
