It's gonna be tough without actually hearing it first hand...but..
Set the bike on the center stand,rear wheel clear and off the ground.Safety the bike so it won't move.
Run the bike in gear to verify the noise is not in the front.
Stop the engine and hand spin the rear wheel.If the noise an still be heard..
The most common problem area is the tire rubbing or noise from the drive Differental/driveshaft.
Other noises can eminate from the brake caliper,it can be removed for testing for the noise( not driving)

It sounds like you got it just in time before you got a tank slapping, and butt puckering experience.
