You probably have a wheel balancing problem. You hit a curb one time or another, or your spokes (if you have any) aren't adjusted equally.
The rule of thumb is the faster one goes the vibration multiplies. Hence you can't feel the same vibration at slow speeds. Also listen your engine, your engine mounts could be shot or too loose, it expounds engine vibration the faster the engine runs, and you feel it in your overall driving. Check to see if everything is tight, the fork, the shocks, the brakes. I wish I'd still my bike, it was beautiful, but got broadsided by a car. Glad I wore my helmet at the time.
