I hope you will forgive me for poking fun in the other thread. Usually you'd post those questions together in one thread. Well forgive you...

But seriously, your wobble problem needs to be solved before riding it again.

Your bike may not have been assembled correctly or the play could have happened over time. There is a large nut and jam nut that keep the steering bearings at the correct tightness so you get no play AND the steering is nice and loose through the whole range of motion. These are located at the steering stem behind your headset. Get some help from someone if you don't think you want to mess with opening up the plastics and inserting a couple of big wrenches in there to turn the nuts to the "just right" setting.

Good luck!
