grinding noise while rolling my Jackpot out of the garage.
I was pulling the Jackpot out to ride it to work yesterday when I could hear a gravel rock/grinding sound coming from the rear tire. It did both walking it forward and backwards. The last time I rode it I got caught in some rain and got some dirt on it. Could that be causing the sound or am I looking at a possible wheel bearing issue?
What do you guys think? It's an 08 Jackpot with right at 15,000 miles on it.

Brake drag. My bike will do it as well from time to time after being in a rain or maybe even after a cleaning, I can't recall it with a cleaning but absolutely after rain. It goes away or at least mine does.

Thanks everyone. I was just wondering because it had never done that before. I did ride to work (about 15 miles/25 min) and there was no difference in the normal sound while riding. When I got to work I rolled it back and forth again and had no abnormal sounds. 13 hrs later when I was leaving working I rolled it back and forth and heard it just a tiny bit. I am going to keep riding it and keep loving every second of it.
