Anyone have an 06 with the wobble??

Just wondering, my 05 still wobbles. My buddy filed lemon law in Pa. and got all his money back today. It never went to trial, and they gave him all the money he put into it to. I'm wondering if the 06 wobbles to?

Cool ?????????

My 05 runs straight and true at speed. (with my hands just above the bars) for over a 3 mi stretch of I 90 in Central New York. this bike is so smooth.

What is the rest of the story??????

Some LTs have a slight front end wobble at certain speeds, some don't. Some have a pronounced wobble. Some dealers understand and try to help sort it out, some don't.

I'm fortunate that my '02 tracks straight and true under all conditions (except when using Avon rear tyres, that is).

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I've had two 05 LTs(It's a long story). My first one had the wobble, the one I now own is smooth as silk(go figure). I still think it has to be wheel balancing.
