Yeah, it's straight.  And the tire is in good shape.  The last change  
was putting my '02s race-setup suspension forks on the front.  We  
knew it would imbalance the bike with the stock rear shock, but I'm  
surprised it's having that dramatic of an effect.  (and yes we backed  
off the front preload quite a bit)
