You say the steering head bearing are fine which they probably are. I assume you test this while the bike is not braking down hill. Just be aware of when the bike is still or just resting on the wheels, the front of the lower bearing and the back of the upper bearing will take the load (lower will take most). While braking it will be the opposite, back of the lower and front of the upper. A small damage/wear at the back of the lower or at the front of the upper will probably not be uncovered during just sitting on the bike and turning the bars from side to side.
I am not saying this is causing your problem, it might be the brakes or other things as mentioned by others, but maybe something to be aware of if no issues is found with other things.
