well the bikes needs to run a few kms more... it shud go around 115 kmh... the egine has to open up. well abt the wobble check for any rim bends n the bearings.. the oil level in the front shock...

i dont think any 150 dtsi will go faster than that with pillion

as for wobbling ninja is correct... rim/wheel bearing/shocks...etc need to be checked

Decided I'd add my two paise.
Chk whether the rim and spokes are true. Chk the swing arm. and Chk whether both the shocks are adjusted to the same settings. And also chk whether the tyre itself is not worn out etc.

Were you riding against the wind or on a slight slope? These are factors we usually overlook. next time, make sure the conditions are idea.

regarding wobbling check the spokes on the rims,tighten them.
check the bearings under the handle.it used to happen on my splendor.so ,greasing them and replacing with new ball bearings used to help.
check ur tire air pressures ,and get ur servicings done on time.
but do all ur speed testings after the rains.
drive safe,
