Rick - Thanks for the suggestions. It turned out with the wet forecast my friends and I were smart and/or chickened out (depending on how you look at it) with the idea of heading south. Instead, I left the R1100S at home and took my '931100LT west and north. We made a loop through parts of WV, OH, MI, around Lake Erie to Niagra Falls, NY, PA, and back home in VA yesterday late afternoon. Totaled about 1450 miles and stayed dry until mid morning yesterday.
Hopefully later in the year we will be able to make it down that way and check out some of the roads in the area - especially 180 which I keep hearing about.
I noticed that you ride a '95LT. Have you had any problems with a front end "wobble"? Over the last 1/2 year or so I noticed that primarily between 40-60mph my handle bars have a lot of movement that would result in a tank slapper if I were to keep my hands off. I'm also starting to notice it as I go through some higher speed curves. This used to be a symptom I experienced when the tread on my front tire was on the low end, now it's happening with new tires. I have tried running my tire pressure as low as 34, as high as 39 based on suggestions from others and get the same results regardless. Could this be a sign that my suspension is on the way out? The bike has about 48000 miles on it, 36000 of which I have put on in the last 2.5 years since I bought it. Last time I had my front tire replaced my dealer said the bearings (stearing or wheel) were in good shape. Any insight would be great.
