Could it be loose steering head bearings?

A little more info about your bike would help also.

i hear it too. I can actually make it do it at will if the revs are just right. I've been wondering if my belt is loose, but I only have 3000 mi on her

I've been hearing the same thing, more when it's warm. Of course the dealer says nothing to worry about, it's normal.
