    Hi Guys. I was riding on the interstate and was in to much of a hurry to get home. I got up to 80 when the handlebars started moving right and left. At 85 it was real violent. Slowed down to 75 and it was ok. Got home and checked tire pressures and they were right on. Tires look a little old but very good thread left on them. The bars seamed like the ends were coming toward me 2 inches. Any ideas???

    Check to see if you lost any wheel wieghts.Youll see a dirty spot if one fell off.This could through the wheel out of balance.Also check to make sure the steering neck bolt is tight.If you have spokes, give those a look.A loose spoke will also through the wheel out of balance.

    I did not notice any wheel weights but I will look tomorrow. Checked the steeering neck bolt today and it is tight. No spokes.

    Possibly a bad /cupped tire?

    Check the front wheel axle for tightness and the rear for alignment.
