Vibration

Last week the bike starting having a vibration at highway speeds. Not a heavy hard vibration but a buzzing that was felt in my feet. Under acceleration very noticable (mirrors even distort), Under de-acceleration noticable but not as bad, pull the clutch in at highway speed it goes away. However pull the clutch in (at highway speed) and rap the thottle up viberation is noticable and increases with rpms. I am taking it to the Dealer tomorrow just thought I would check to see if anyone has experianced this before. Thanks

It sounds as if something is loose on the frame. Then again, these things have been known to run with a broken camshaft.
