Default Steerring damper?

So I was telling one of my friends about my "new" ST and he informed me that I probably should add a damper if I was using a trunk. Seems he had heard of a tendency to head-shake with trunk. Not having any facts myself, I ask you here is this a real issue. Maybe trunk loading or tire selection or pressure are contributing factors??

I'm a little timid after having been spit off a couple of times due to tank slappers (Kawasaki's).

I purchased a first year CBR954RR. Bran spankin new off the showroom floor. Beautiful bike and except for a scary tendency to waggle the bars under hard acceleration, it was magnificent. A damper calmed it down.

Old wife's tale? Rumors spread by envious "Other Bike" owners? Comments and opinions please.
