Yeah same here. Just can't do it with lowriders man! They're too long! It's hard as heck just driving with the chain wheel with one hand so it's bound to wobble or something with no hands. Not a problem witht he bike, it's just whichever way has less resistance is where your bike will trun. ;)

I have that problem sometimes with my 3 wheeler. It does that because the bolts that connect the frame to the rear axle are loose. The whole front end tilts a few degrees depending on which bolt is loose, causing it to turn when I am trying to go straight. Im not sure why it would do that with a two wheeler? I think it might be the fork. Go back and tighten all the bolts on the fork and see if that helps.

what Socios said is part of the problem, check these out

steering tube is loose possibly bent

bolt ring is loose add washers to tighten it up

you grooved the crown it means you need a new one this causes the fork to lean. a fix would require welding a washer the size of the bolt behing the crown to preserve the chrome outside.

fork could be bent or you front wheel isnt lined up with the rear wheel.check all three.

if none of this shit fixes it buy a new fork(i replace mine every 2 years)

I'm in the process of doing that now. Damn I sorta wish I didn't ride my bike everyday for 3 years straight extra weight, twisted shit, and all. :uh:
