I guess if you were a badass under pressure you could pop a wheelie extremely quickly and try and straighten out the front wheel when you land.

It depends on how bad it really is. If it's just a mild head shake then you can try to gas it. If it's a full blown lock to lock tank slapper there isn't $h!t you can do but let go of the bars. Either way, the bike will settle itself eventually. Just what ever you do don't fight it.

This is what NOT to do. He fights the bike and looses. Watch how the tank slapper gets tranferred to the rear tire from the rider fighting with the clip-ons.

I do two things, if going up a hill I hold it out till the crest and hit the gas as hard a possible to lift the front.
Or let go very lightly to let the bike stop transfer of the wobble through me.

I've been through a small tank slapper before. I was ridding down a rode I go down quite often so I know it pretty well. What I think happened the front tire was ether in a very very small wheelie or skipping over the pavement and when I shifted into second the tire came down croaked because the pavement is uneven and rough in this area and thats what caused it. I loosened my arms and kept my grip about the same a normal didn't change my body position and stayed on the gas slightly and it stabled out. One thing I know for sure is to pump that brake lever a few times because I had less than 1/4 of the normal braking power afterwards and the lever went straight to the grip.
