I suppose it's not impossible. Is there evidence of oil on the tire?

Oil on shock and spray on front talked to goldwing mechanic he says to look at triple tree bearings he has seen a roller lock up before which can cause this but don't feel anything in movement but going to change it all 100 in parts or life not hard choice

If you haven't done so, recommend wheel and swing arm bearings as well.
