Well, f a monkey on a football, I had to abort.
I got about 40 miles into the ride, just about a mile or two before Wildwood Store, and I lost all the handling in my front end. Couldn't carry any corner speed or lean. The front felt like it wanted to wiggle and slip wide. It got BAD.
I pulled over, made sure it wasn't a greasy tire or oil spill I drove thru, checked temp and psi in the tire,(32.1psi @ 120F degrees) did the bounce test to check fork action, inspected the fork seals for leaks, checked for sloppy movement of the axle.
As I see it, the only thing left could be bearings (wheel bearings are fairly new and steering bearings feel normal), or a tire that went bad on me.
I'm going to inspect closer today...
Any other ideas?
