i've got 8500 mi. on my 2010 1800. recently noticed the front beginning to wobble more. at speed or slowing i get a wobble if i barely touch handlebars. is that normal or just tire wear. tire looks to be pretty worn. how many miles should i normally expect out of the original tire. is there a best tire to look at for handling and ride when i do change.

If you go the google forum search to the right of the screen and try looking for front end wobble GL1800 you will scads and scads of threads where this horse has been ridden to death.

About 8500 is pretty normal miles on 1800 tires. Somewhere about the time you replace the first front tire the fork oil is also thinning out and dampening is reduced and you will start to get a wobble in the front end.
