Twist of the wrist mentioned staying lose, letting the bikes natural gyroscopic effect stablize, and apply some acceleration .

Am a just being paranoid or is their a possibility my front tire may of loosen up? When I was going into work today my front tire feels a little different at high speeds, even a little jolt to the left or right I feel that my tire "may" start to wobble again.. suggestions?

you can always get your tire re-balanced and you may want to have it checked to see if the rim was bent
