Excellent advice and fixed my problem. I removed the front wheel and the caliper so I could determine if the forks would always flop to the right like they do with the wheel installed. They would go all the way right from full left by themselves. I determined that the front brake line from the brake lever was pulling the bars right hard enough to cause enough countersteering pressure to make the bike pull left.

A couple zip ties and my bike tracks perfectly straight. It makes me wonder if some bikes have zip ties when delivered. I post a couple pics of where I put the zip ties when I have a chance.

Thanks for all the help.
