    She is moving quickly from left to right, changing 2-3 times per second.

    I just picked her up as a rental for the next 7 months. Q: What could cause this?
    I took the 11 from CNX to Lampang and it seems to come from the front.

    Wheel bearing? Steering bearing? Needs a new tire?

    It's a quick vascillating movement, like a quick pendulum moving from left to right more than twice every second @ around 55 km/h.

    Hope someone recognizes the symptoms.

    Ride on!

    Thanks - I will check it out. It felt as if the tire was moving on the rim...
