Did some more testing and found that my noise occurs at 12-13 MPH and can be easily duplicated. Anyone else?

Rubbing sound

I bought 2016 Gunner in July
Heard the rubbing sound or Bearing noise or however you describe it. I have had it since day one. Told dealer on 500 mile service. Said they heard nothing.
Had it in shop for headlight issue high beam flicker and All lights go out. Connector melted. Dealer said the fix was to replace the whole wiring harness, meaning removing swing arm. With no guarantee it wouldn't happen again. I said no. Find and replace the connector w/ ceramic connector iso plastic. They did but I haven't gotten it back yet.
Now up to around 13 or 1400 miles. In the shop because it pulled to the right when you take your hands off the handle bars. It will put you in the ditch in about 5 secs.
They called yesterday and said they could not find anything causing it to pull to the right. Took another new one off show room floor for a ride and it does the same thing.
Like Dude! WTF?!
Told them again about the noise. Said they would take it for another test ride and call me back. Still waiting to hear back

Hey. I like the power ... Strength and speed. Maneuvers awesome.
I can't say I'd buy another. May or may not keep this one. Still undecided.
Is it time to start bad mouthing the Gunner, Victory and the dealer???
