As long as I'm moving in a straight line there is no vibration. But, as soon as I lean on the grip to counter steer and make a turn, even very slightly, I can feel a vibration in the grips. It kind of a rough vibration. Has anyone experienced this type of thing and have any idea what might cause this? It's not severe so at first I just thought it's just the way the bike feels but now not so sure.

front tire maybe cupped, rub your hand over the outside tread.
Checked that but I think tires are fine. Just put new Commander IIs on last year and they are in great shape. It almost feels like when the front tire is in a lean position such that there is a side pressure on the wheel bearings that it's generating this vibration, kind of a rubbing / grinding feeling.
