When you are riding in a straight line at slow speed does it gyroscope like the front wheel is on cracks in the road?, this is steering head bearings.
My first ride was no plate, ins., or reg., so..., it was a short ride. Got everything now and will put it all on tonight and try a longer ride. Will have a better feel then.
The bike has 9700 miles and guessing it's the original shock.
