Well, I went through the usual winterizing ritual yesterday and was pretty sad about it all. On the one hand I like snow and winter weather, generally, but I really miss the riding.

No special issues this year, except that I finally got around to working on the front brakes and found that they still have a high speed wobble/chattering so I guess I'll have to go through the measurement process to figure out if one or both rotors are bent. Any easy way to tell if the issue is a bent rim instead of rotors? I'd hate to buy a new rotor or two only to discover that the rim's bent and the new rotors got screwed up too.

can't you use the dial caliper on the rim? Clamp it to the fork, let the needle run on the polished side of the rim.

However, I have trouble envisioning a scenario like that. A rim is going to bend around the outside, or perhaps on the spokes. The inside hub is the sturdiest part, with the least chance of bending. So unless you ride a buell, I don't think that's the issue
