Had the same problem on a tube frame Buell.
Turned out that it was the o-ring on the bottom of the valve stem, between the valve stem and wheel. Reseated o-ring correctly slow leak stopped.

Have you changed throttle grip lately? I have noticed that sometimes the grip can be longer than the throttle tube causing the grip to drag on the handlebar.

Good luck

rod holder

I think a couple of rod holders would do the trick. You could set them up with poles to look like your are trolling down the highway. Maybe some plastic minos as bait.

gas tank pickles

Apple cider vinegar does wonders with rust in tanks. Fill the tank to the top with the vinegar. Let it soak for 24 hours the wash it out with water. Air compressor helps dry the tank.

Burnt Goo

The mrs has a tendency to slide her feet too far back on the passenger boards. Chrome pipes burn her boots. I have cleaned the mess off several times with WD-40 and steelwool. Works great for me.
