I know the tire is much bigger than on my Wing, does that make a difference? Is this something you get used to?
Best thing to do is stop over here and ask. I'd check the front tire's pressure - anything below 40-41 lbs tends to make for harder steering than is necessary.

Personally, I can't remember my I/S "falling over", although it can be a bit of a handful at slow speeds.

You've been bitten, and the only "cure" is to get one for yourself and ENJOY!
