Definitely not normal. I've had mine up to 140+ on the track and no stability problems at all. Check the normal things depending on how many miles you've done - as above, abnormal tire wear, wheel balance, wheel bearings, head set bearings, swing arm bearings. Any of these out and they could contribute.

Even some "non-standard" stuff can be the problem like... 30 lbs of stuff in a tail trunk, improper lowering the bike cause you have short legs, tire "runout", etc..... more info needed here I think.

If your referring to head shake? Try scooting back in the seat...if it goes away or steadies up...there might be a bit too much preload in the rear

I had a similar problem. Turned out that the front axle pinch bolts were left loose at the last tire change by the mechanic. Torquing the bolts properly cured the problem, but by that time the front tire was somewhat "cupped".
