I have a 1986 Goldwing and when I bought it a year and a half ago it wobbled in the front,would shake at about 35 or 30 miles an hour so I replaced the wheel bearings on the front tire and checked the neck bearings plus put new tires front and back,I also made sure the air suspension was working properly,that seemed to have cleared up my wobble. :D
