I searched before I posted, and didn't find anything. I hope you guys can help me understand what this may be. I feel/hear a "friction" when the bike is leaned over. Not at slow parking lot speeds, but normal cruising, leaning to follow the road, I hear and feel a friction or rubbing. It's only when leaning, riding straight is smooth and quiet. The sound/feel lasts as long as I'm leaned, as I straighten it stops. It has a metallic quality, so I don't think that it is a normal rubber-on-the-road type sound. That's the best I can describe it. My bike is an 02 C with 6400 miles. Reading about the problems some have had with the rear bearings lately has me spooked. Any ideas? Thanks!
