It would seem like this beads have to move around a lot inside the tire. The outside of a tire does not rotate but goes from zero velocity to 2x the car (motorcycle) velocity following a 'n' like pattern per revolution

Also as the beads are approaching the zero velocity of the outer wheel speed it hits a bump, the contact patch.

It would seem like this beads should be in constant rolling (and perhaps 'flying' as it hits the contact patch) motion and maybe that constant motion disturbs a resonation pattern that caused a imbalance.
