    Funny pic! There were so many folks doing that in the AHRMA (American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association) races, especially the National ones. They would literally pick a class nobody was running, then set up a bike for that class. By damn, they can then say when they are 80+ years old that they were a National champion. Maybe that will get them laid by one of the old wrinkled grannies in the old folks home

    Back in the day, we'd use a length of a 2x4 alongside the rear wheel that extends out to the front wheel. Center the front wheel, then see if the rear is misaligned by how far the 2x4 is non-parallel with the front. Not exact, for sure, but it would get us close. Nowadays, I'm sure there's something 3D printed or some such that would tell you if you're off by a mm . . . . If I was pulling somewhat, I'd loosen the axle and adjust the appropriate adjuster maybe half a turn to a full turn, tighten it back up and take it for a ride. See how it changed the pull and possibly re-adjust. Many folks would adjust the wrong way, so think it through. Also, be cautious of your chain tension. This is just a possibility relative to your problem; the idea of a cable pushing the handlebar to one side is also a reasonable possibility. Good luck. Be careful.

    You should ask him if he would be OK with his bikes brake pads dragging for a thousand miles and when he makes that face you tell him to fix it.

    I'm running higher intensity LED bulbs in the OEM signals. I have no plans to change them.

    I don't know how "bad" it is, but every bike I've ever owned (more than a dozen), has pulled to the right when I let go of the bars..... All roads are made with a slight "crown" in them, to allow water to drain off of them. I owned a Goldwing once that I swore had a twist in the frame. Turns out that it just felt like it, because I was looking at through the straight line at the top of the windscreen all the time, and the bike was always leaning to compensate for the crown in the road, the windscreen made it look "crooked" compared to the road. You may want to try this- Get in the left lane of a 2 (or more) expressway, and let go of the bars. the bike will probably stay "neutral", or may pull slightly left. FYI: If you look closely at a worn out front tire on heavy bike (Goldwing, or cruiser) just slightly left of the center of the tire will be slightly more worn. That's because your front tire has been compensating for the slight crown in the road for several years. Hope that helps -

    Save what good relationship? So far all the dealer is doing is blowing sunshine up your backside now that he's got your money. Move bars from full left lock to full right lock and look for any cable/hose that may be binding or trying to kink which may be trying to push your bars to the right. I'll assume you tested on multiple road types?
