There are many factors that can affect front wheel wobble. You'd have to experiment with your setup to see if my scenario is valid on your bike. That said, the front wheel wobble on my bike wasn't so bad that I felt a loss of control. Pushing down hard on the handlebar/front end would reduce the wobble or simply easing off the gas would eliminate the wobble.
Have you posted pictures off the trip on a thread manray?
