So, i went to Owl's Head last weekend with the guys and spent the entire day on my bike for the first time since i've owned her. Anyway, on the way back i decided to fly past my borther on his new Thruxton at 90 mph just to see if i could get her there. well, i did, but ever since then, when i do anything over 65mph, the bike wobbles.

Anybody have any idea what happened? i used to go 70-75 on the turnpike and she'd ride straight as an arrow.

Could it be wheelweights?

Hydraulic steering damper on that bike? An old, out of balance tire on my bike blew out the damper on the highway

i just found out that the bolt that keeps the rear wheel on was loose and there was a 1" gap for the wheel t.o move around. a warning to all brit bike owners. check those connections!
