wobble on 07 road glide

Most of the times you will here about a road glide wobble at high speeds. I feel it at low speeds making a turn, or pulling out of a gas station coming off a small curb, going into a turn I feel she will start to wobble if I dont hold the bars firmly. On the Highway she steady as she goes beautiful. Im on a skillteam here in miami and when we are doing slow turns and figure eights Ill feel the bars shaking, is there anything I can do to fix that problem. Is anybody experncing the same thing. Thanks alot guys.

Have you taken a CLOSE look at the front tire? Try over inflating it by 10 pounds and see if there is change.
One far less likely might be the neck bearings. If you have a bike lift, have someone raise the bike while watching the triple tree and frame joint.

Sounds like it may be the tire or wheel.

I have found that the FLTR is very prone to the wiggles when improperly loaded (bags) but this is only at 75+ ,mph speeds. I would suspect that it may be time for motor mounts and check the front tire and wheel assembly. All are garage repairs and cheap.
