Went on normal Saturday ride(260) miles today, hadn't ridden the warrior in about a month, been riding the Concours because of the fairing protection from the cold weather. After about 100 miles I heard this scraping sound. After checking everything I finally determined the rear wheel bearing was bad. Had to pack double with riding buddy to my home and truck the Warrior home. Good advice is to take a close look at bearing when changing tires. The Warrior is only 6 years old with 68k on it. Just some advice to keep from interrupting a great day trip.
