Good post, LordSmoke, but a little depressing to a guy who just bought a case of Ride-On. Oh well. I'll loosen my chain a tad and see if the shaking goes away. Fingers crossed.
EDIT: Okay, I found the chain maybe slightly tight but probably not tighter than spec. I reset it to 30mm. Couldn't see much difference in slack (tight spot) after several wheel revolutions. I wonder if my basic imbalance might be beyond the ability of Ride-On to correct? It's possible that I simply didn't notice the vibration since putting on new tires because I don't usually go an indicated 90mph anymore and when I do for some reason, passing usually, I'm paying more attention to road and traffic than to bike tremors? After charging the tires with Ride-On, I was of course hoping for buttery smoothness and looking for it. Confirmed that the vibration remained after loosening the chain a touch. Crap.
