GL1200. I've been riding this one for about two weeks. It has an annoying tendency to not want to track straight. It takes constant slight steering input to stay straight. It feels as though the forks and wheel don't want to stay centered. It occurs at all speeds, city or highway. Makes me look like I've had a few too many.
Tires are almost new Elite IIs, inflated to 35 pounds. They were at about 20 and did the same thing. Rear shocks at about 35 also. No air in forks. About 108,000 miles and no idea what has been done to the bike other than some amateurish wiring of extra lights.
If the fork head bearings are worn in the center area is it a soft "notch" or does it have a definite narrow notch effect?
Should I be looking at something else?
Thanks to all,

I'd sure love a $175,000 a year part time job with benefits like member of Congress have.
