I rode 3 hour to get back to the dealer where I bought my 2012 GL1800. I was having an issue with a wobble around 40 mph. The new bearings were well worth it. The dealer also said the original front tire with only 1700 miles on it was also contributing to bad handling. With the new head bearing and new front tire there is a very noticeable improvement in handling. While there I also had a Utopia backrest installed.
