The vid shows a hardcore tankslapper. You might have experienced a slighter tankslapper.

I noticed a very slight wobble under acceleration coming out of a corner (still slightly leaning) onto a highway on ramp. It was dry and was accelerating harder than I would have otherwise but not anything more than 60-70% throttle. The wobble, which was more of a shimmy, happened so fast that I had enough time to think, "did I just wobble?" after it had happened and just kept going (no crash). Did I accelerate too hard or somehow unbalance the bike coming out of a corner?
Any tar strips or other irregularities on the road? I've had a few incidents where the front or rear wheel steps out a very small amount and it takes the tires and suspension a few oscillations to calm down (it's double-fun when you have a heavy backpack on ).

There's always money in the banana stand.
Hopefully this works, but here is where it occurred:
You should be staring right at the onramp.
Oh, thanks Union, I didn't realize there was an actual name for this
