Inspecting the front wheel

On the way home tonight I noticed a sorta low whirring noise coming from my front wheel. The sound reminded me a little of bearings going out. I don't have stands, but I was going to get someone to rock it back on the kickstand so I could spin the front wheel. Other than smooth rotation, what else should I be looking for to identify my phantom noise?

You could pull the calipers off to eliminate the brakes (as a source of the noise). Maybe the speedometer cable (my bike is old), maybe pickup sensor on yours.
