front wheel noise?

2015 LT, great bike, at about 500 miles. No issues but I am hearing a very very soft almost musical "honk-honk-honk" at slow speeds when the engine is at about idle and I'm in motion. Seems to correspond with the wheel rotation speed. It's going in for its 600 mile check in two weeks. No vibrations/brake issues/etc. 90% sure it's coming from the area of the front wheel.

Ideas? Thanks much.

Finger on the horn button?

If it corresponds with wheel rotation speed look at brake pads touching, something jammed in or around the ABS ring.
