Unhappy steering shake in my 01 concours

I have steering shake above 55mph when I have my hands off the bars. I have replaced the steering bearings. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Check tire pressure first, next check tire wear after that recheck your tension on the steering head bearings should have slight resistance.

It also helps to know when the problem was first noticed to understand what might have changed.

Cupped tire?

Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.
