Welcome to the club. In reflecting on my own groundhog event, I recall relaxing my hands while while keeping them on the handlebar grips. The wobble stopped. It's something I instinctively borrowed from my rotorhead days. Helicopters are prone to pilot-induced oscillations when the controls are too held too tightly. You feel a beat - loosen your grip. If it stops, problem solved. If the beat continues, something needs adjusting.
With a bike, I figure the wheels'gyroscopic forces will try to continue moving in the original direction as long as you don't screw it up by overcorrecting.
Then again, it just might take luck.
If you find an appropriate road kill sticker, get one for me. Replies:
