Default Wheel Bearing

So a guy on FB said he heard sounds from front end and bike didn't roll right. So he pulled front wheel axle. This is what he found. Guess now and then you should shut the radio off

Uh; yeah! Maybe put the bike on a bike lift and spin the wheels while inspecting, checking air, and cleaning the wheels too.

That had to take some time to develop that much damage to the axel.

Holy cow. No way that developed quickly.
Probably was using a "guy" or dealer for the work.
Maybe they bought it used though and a gift from the prior owner.

I would think if the inner race was spinning, which it was, that wouldn’t take long at all. Surprising he didn’t notice it though.
