The 1000 isn't much better, it's height not weight that's the main problem.
Once you catch on to most of the problem being rider input it gets easier.
As Greywolf says a fork brace helps a lot, with a steering damper as well it's very stable.
You shouldn't need to go as far as fitting a damper , I just happen to have one on my bike for other reasons.
The only comment I will make that disagrees with that that thread - I ride through coastal high-rises on my commute, very strong winds and gusty, arms very loose but moving waaay forward with thighs and knees clamping the tank works better in those circumstances. (Narrow lanes, with traffic beside me, I can't afford to let the bike move too far sideways).
With more room, being more relaxed works equally well, but the bike will move around in the lane more.
