Thanks Woody! I just started riding this summer and was wandering why the front tire might be hopping and shimmying on my '06 1200GS. I was going to say it was simply out of balance. But after reading all the info on this thread I think I have a better place to start now.

I will be planning to send you some wheels this winter.
2006 1200GS for me
2012 F650GS (twin) for my wife
