How do you do it? I start to wobble when I go past 10 mph.  

Keep on riding. It will get better.

Try a different tire pressure.  My stock tubeless variant is at 30 psi @ 175 lb load.

I don't find it particularly fun to go "fast" on it (not that you asked for my opinion :thumbup:).  Keeping it on the "slow" side will also give you a good bit more range with that little battery.

Cool I'm going to try and tweak the pressure.  I don't really want to normally ride fast, I just want to be able to?  My leg wobbles and I start to feel like death is nigh.

I tend to go on the lower end of the tire pressure range, to give more cushion while riding; but lately I have had it around 35 PSI.

I'm able to ride at 30km/h in slight off-road conditions. Asphalt is easier to go faster, but easier to miss a hidden bump.

Once I rode inn night and light shown all imperfections of road that looked fine during day

The problem is not going fast. The problem is going fast and hitting a small bump.

It's just muscle memory, you need to keep riding it will come eventually

I've stuck with it and I can top out at a comfortable 16 mph.  The wobble has gotten better and everyone's right - it really just took more time/muscle memory.  I'll keep at it - I want to be able to push 20 mph on this thing.
