Left the girlfriend locked in the trunk again? :lol:

Have you checked the rear tire for a possible screw, bulge or piece of loose rubber? As another thought, is the rear axle properly secured, rear brake mounts, mufflers, etc?

How frequent is it, ie: only when cornering/accelerating/braking or is it constant? Does it change with speed?
Keep it rubber side down and shiny side up and all will be well with the world!
