 Passing a semi tractor trailer a about 70mph front end steering on new 04 electraglide classic began a wobbling of the front tire. it was extremely noticable and nearly caused the bike to go into the tractor trailer. in order to solve the problem i reduced my speed w/o applying brakes to about 40mph and the wobbling finally stopped. *ak *tc
