yeah it definitely feels like a knot or flat spot that's how bad it is.so bad you couldn't get to 50 mph beat you to death.out off balance tire wouldn't be like that would it? the guy at honda shop said he done both the static and electronic balance on it.

Take it back to the shop that “balanced” it. Sometimes tires are defective.
Good idea. Have them put those ceramic beads in the tire (if tubeless) as they are superior for balancing and you never need to worry about losing a wheel weight! While at it, if you can find a place that uses nitrogen rather than air-fill the tires with that. The molecule is larger and your tires will not need “baby sat” as much for leaking air.

This, is a very bad and dangerous habit to get into. "Bahhh, I don't have to check my pressures, I put nitrogen in my tires! " You have 2 tiny contact patches with the pavement on a bike. You should be checking those pressures weekly at the very least.

Is it vibrating as in unbalanced or rough like a Harley hardtail? Feel every tiny bump or butt shaking cyclical vibe?
