    Martydi, this gets a bit redundant because Dave and others have already explained the real culprits. I wouldn't toss your current tires unless you just want to try something else. Your picture looks like yours has panniers and a trunk like mine. I can't properly set up my suspension sag because I have stock suspension on my '12. The shock is set at stiffest pre-load and is still too soft. I could increase the fork pre-load with some spacers. But for now I did manage to lessen the problem to at least a safe level by airing up the tires and keeping my boxes light. Eventually, I may upgrade my suspension and solve this the correct way. Obviously some tires have more sidewall flex than others but if the tires were really the problem we'd have big adventure bikes scattered along the highways because they run the same ones I'm having trouble with...
