Shimmy at 35 to 40 mph, regardless of road condition (want to learn how to defensively ride a motorcycle? Come to Michigan and try our roads).
Shimmy definitely in the handlebars. As I read elsewhere, and don't give me any s*** about this, if I take my hands off the handlebars for a moment it's clear that the front tire is shimmying.
Yes I keep my hands on the handlebars unless I'm trying to test for a shimmy in my front tire
New front and back brakes done about 2 months ago. New front tire end of last season, balanced,bead looked good no problems with mounting it.
No structural changes or additions. Same handlebars, windshield, bags, nothing new
BUT ...I will say that your comment in regards to the shocks intrigues me. one of the reasons I had the front brakes replaced is because I felt they weren't giving me enough stopping power. Now that they've been changed, it seems when I apply the front brake my front end goes forward and down quite a bit. Seriously wondering if the problem is in the front fork where the shock is.
And please bear with me, hope I'm using the correct terms for the parts .... not a mechanic 😂
Don't ask to ride my bike and I won't ask to f*** your husband
