K1200LT Strange popping sound at speed

2002 K1200Lt - Purchased 7 months ago, I am accomplishing some upgrade & maintenance work; new brake lines, air and fuel filters, brake pads, final drive bearing(s) inspection and repair, new front wheel bearings, replace/bleed all fluids, etc.
Two issue remain. I get an occassional thump/pop sound while going straight at speeds over 40 mph. I also detect a audible brushing noise when turning in either direction. It is the popping sound that is most concerning. The last time the popping sound was heard it was accompanied by a noticible skip of the rear wheel.
Anyone had a similar issues?
