Is this a wobble when he lets go of the handlebars?
Or is he hanging on to them? Even with one hand?
I have experianced this in two of my Wings.
But I had to be totally off the bars to make it happen.
And then most times a small bump or defect in the road makes it start.
This first time it happened on this Wing was after a long time in the saddle and I stood up on the pegs on a back country road and was stretching.
First thing I knew is the Wing started shaking and I droped back to the seat and had to use alot of strength and some front brake to get it back under control.
Scared the hell out of me.
My tires are fine, Checked Pressure and Front bearings and steering Head Bearing preload.
I dont have the Notch in the bearings some have found in thier wings.
Most of these problems were solved by mounting New Tires.
And I am going to do that. But I will ride awhile yet on these.
I just know this Wing is prone to wobble if I dont hang on to it.
So fore warned is Fore Armed.
Do a search on Wobble and you will find loads of info to help you guys sort out this problem.
Good Luck to ya.
