Went on a 273 mile ride yesterday, various speeds lots of twisties. 60 mile stretch of the ride was on an interstate with the average speed between 75 and 80 mph. I didn't feel very confident at those speeds. I could feel the bikes handlebars slightly s-l-i-g-h-t-l-y shift back and forth left to right nothing crazy, not a tank slapper but I could feel it. But it did get me thinking of a tank slapper, I also recall at lower speeds 55-70 removing my hand off one of the handle bars for to scratch my face or to give another rider the wave, I could slightly feel the handlebar input. Is this normal? I am seriously considering a steering damper. Just gotta find one for this bike.
