I’ll loosen the bearings and try again. Before and after I change the head bearings at around 40 mph (maybe lower) if I hit a bump with a loose hand grip, the front shimmies fairly aggressive. Not above 55 though.

I got rid of my alluminum wings and picked up a Goldwing. Here to live once, die once and give Glory to God while doing it.
