Question Wheelie Wobble

Last night me and a buddy were riding some stagard freeway wheelies at about 65mph in second gear, well as soon as I leaned back a little to slow it down the bike started wobbling and forced me to set it down. I could have been a little beyond balance point, which I've noticed even on a sit down will wobble when I go beyond, but perhaps it was the road surface I don't know.


Is it the Hondas geometry? Even the OGs that have been wheeling before I was born wobble on their Hondas. What's the deal??
