The way I understand it a "troll" is a person who poses a question just to provoke controversy. Most often a troll is a person who has never been heard from before. ... but in this case it is conceivable that the original poster (OP) does have a wobble and is seeking advice. However, the OP didn't ask for advice. But in his defense, the first thing I would suggest is to replace the tires and come back after replacing the tires and report on the wobble. A defective or bad tire caused by striking a pot-hole or other object in the road can cause a wobble on most vehicles.

None of the new Goldwings have any wobble. If yours does, you better get it to the dealer, being you have a big problem with that bike!

I did a test ride yesterday on a 2018 manual, new at the dealer . We pulled it off the floor and took it out. The front wheel shimmied and wobbled from 70 to 90mph. I dropped it below 70 and it went away. I took it back to the dealer and we looked it over with the service dept. They couldn't find anything obvious, but they did verify the issue.

I think they decided to replace the OEM front tire.



I plan to talk with them on Tuesday when they reopen.
