I guess I was using the term 'tank-slapper' as a figure of speech
But, lets just think about the physics of this: there is a rolling round tire imposing a vertical centrifugal force, which is effected by the forward vector of the bike's horizontal travel and the weight of the bike itself.
If all things are balanced correctly, as they appear to be in other bikes, there is no reason why the rolling motion of the front tire should prompt a wobble other than there must be an anomaly in the forces, some kind of deviation of balance.
Look I ain't no engineer, I am sure there are a lot of engineers around, even on this board, that could take me to task on what I imagine about 'wobble-dynamics' just using my common sense.
The bottom line is this: the wobble is not a normal circumstance for which the "don't take your hands off" should be an acceptable remedy.
I want to know that things are rolling in a completely balance way (down there infront of me on that front tire) without me having to exert a counter-force on the system to keep it from wobbling around.
