I have traveled two up and just the spinning of the front wheel seems noisy. In two occasions at speeds of 60 - 70 MPH on an open smooth road, a sudden noise comes from the front end of my 2012 Goldwing that has less than 2500 miles on the clock. It sounds like a continuous noise such as growling that lasts for 10 seconds more or less. This is riding in a straight line, no turning, no leaning just the sudden noise. I was wondering if the electric fans are turning on and making that noise.. just don't know. But why would the fans kick on with the continuous movement of air while in motion?

That sounds a lot like road and tire noise coming up through the suspension tunnel. I put foam inserts in there to shut off some of the noise. Most of the tire manufacturers have noisy tires. Avon seems to be quieter, while Dunlop is noisier. This has been my experience. Your noise may be something else, so this is just something to look at.
