Power through it. It stables out. Allegedly. So I'm told.
I don't condone any of that sort of behaviour on public roads.

 More likely to be either tyre pressure, or wheel out of balance. Or damaged tyre, cheapest option get the front wheel and tyre re-balanced.
But do not forget the rear tyre if it has flat spots, it can cause steering wobble.
In fact there are many variations, so it may take a bit of investigative work, to find any problem. But try the simple things first. Keep us informed of how you get on....

Also worth checking your front wheel for pothole damage.
