    If it changes when the road curves left (enough for the weight to shift), it might be a left-side wheel bearing. Might it be coming from a wheel?

    Generally, if the road curves left and the type of noise you're referring to occurs, it would most often be the right side bearing. They are usually more noticeable when you load up the hub assembly. Turning left shifts the load right.
