Narly noise???

OK, I blew a rear tire the other day, hit a large anchor bolt(see pic), plugged and patched the tire, replaced the tube. Now when I'm just about stopped I get a narly rumble through the bike, like I'm riding on knobbies but I'm running Dunlop 607's, like I'm on coble stones but I'm not. No high speed vibrations, check for too tight chain, wheel is straight and adj properly, it does it with the engine running or off.. Any ideas?? I'm stumped.

Might be the chain is too lose or kinking. Are your break pads seated properly and the mount properly bolted on? Make sure a bolt didn't shear off inside.
