2001 Accord -- weird sound from right rear wheel

    My Honda is making a strange noise, and I'm hoping someone can give me an
    idea as to what it is. After starting the car and traveling in reverse, I
    get a buzzing noise from the right rear wheel. It lasts about 10 seconds,
    and it changes in pitch as I slow down. Once going forward, I don't hear
    anything, and it never happens again until the car sits for a while (turned
    off). This sound never occurs while going forward. This sound is
    different, I think, from the ABS brakes testing themselves. That is usually
    a quick "thunk" noise when backing up.

    Here are my Honda specs:

    2001 EX
    37000 miles (just out of warranty....it figures).
    ABS brakes

    Anyone have any ideas? I haven't had a chance to pull the tire yet, but
    probably will do so soon.
