slow speed wandering

I have 3000 miles on my new to me 07 gt. The bike has 15000 miles on it.It has pr2 tires on it with 3500 miles on them. At slow speeds below 30mph it weaves back and forth there is nothing I can do to make it track straight I have 36 and 40 psi in tires.It seems to track true at speed but very unsettling going slow. Any ideas on what to try.

Why, that there is the famous tire warming feature

Seriously, loosen up. Make sure that you don't have a death grip on the bars and that your arms and shoulders are loose.

What was that middle thang?

I read recently a similar issue that was from the duolever bushes being seized, of course I cannot now find the original text but look at that for resolution of the issue?
