It definately feels like that when you first start to ride it.
As you get to know the bike and how to lean and weight the bike right you'll be faster and tighter without lifting the inside wheel.

It helps some to bump the front shocks up to the 4th notch. And set the tire pressures 20lb front and 30lb rear.

A new front anti-sway bar from Evoluzione Cyclesports can make a huge difference.
