Thanks for the pointers fellas. Cranked up the rear shock rebound damping to max and the spring preload to about 2/3 max and the underinflated rear tire symptom powering out of turns is gone. Weird how a wimpy shock can give a squishy side to side feel. But, in hind sight, when the bike is heeled over an under damped shock's up and down motion, relative to the bike, could be perceived as side to side squiggle. Any how, time for new shocks... and the Ohlins group buy deadline long expired. Ah well.
Paul. '04 R1100S w/Íhlins an' stuff, '09 Buell 1125cr, '08 Suzi SV650A, '00 Suzi SV650, '97 328i (with sticky ass tires - I love this car even though its just a car). And the bikes I used to own: '68 Bultaco 100, '69 Honda CL450, '71 Kawasaki Mach III, '71 OSSA Pioneer, '72 Honda MR175, '72 Benelli 250, '75 Yamaha RD350 (then college), '83 Honda VF750F (then kids),'96 MZ Skorpion, '99 R1100S, '01 SV650 and '94 Honda VFR750F - most wrecked.
