How's the air pressure? Low pressure could cause that feeling.

Next, raise the bike and check the forks/rack for play by holding the forks infront of the bike and shaking forward and backwards.

+3 on the air pressure. also how many miles are on that tire? if its worn it will handle like that. you wont believe the difference once you change it.

Tire pressure/wear would be my guess. If not, a fork seal??

Does it do it turning both directions?

Has the suspension ever been setup for you? If not go and spend the $25 at Motorcycles Unlimited. It's money well spent.
