Dennis makes a very good point about keeping your sight well down the road. If the wind moves the bike (as it always will), and you're looking across the top of the windscreen down to the road, it'll seem like a very big movement, and you'll likely over correct.
So...check tire pressures. I run the pressure shown on the sticker on the swingarm. Be sure the steering stem bearings aren't too loose. Sit easy on the bike with your hands, arms, body relaxed. Allow the bike to move around a bit under your steady upper body. Counter steer into gusts...when a gust hits from the right, for example, press forward on the right grip as needed to hold your line.
