Yeah.... unfortunately, if you can push it around that much by hand, I believe it will be moving all over the place on the road...

I have had setups on my Airheads that I swore were rock solid when I "tested" them in the garage that I could see moving when cornering. And those had a full double-craddle perimeter frame that a subframe was attached to.

That sucks in a bad way...
