Changes in bikes street handling with fork brace

My bikes suspension has been revalved/resprung, but I still wanted to try and minimize the twisty front forks by installing a RSW fork brace.
I got to take the bike for its first quick street ride with the brace on yesterday.
I didn't get to hit any dirt, but on the street it stiffened the feel and handling up nicely....feels much closer to the USD forks I had on my XR500R ...me likey.
It was a pretty windy day tho, and I did notice that at 75-80 the front end wanted to weave a little, something it never did before the brace.
Anybody have any feedback on this? Just curious if anybody else experienced anything similiar
