I ride with my seat in the low position, but it shouldn't rock in the high position. There's a bit of a trick to installing it in the high position. I'd suspect the middle catch has been missed. Assuming that you have an OEM seat (not aftermarket), try this:
Set the seat straight down, gently. Look towards the rear of the seat, and gently push it into the catch, first position (Not all the way down, the lock has two distinct clicks, you only want the first click)
Now lift the front of the seat, about an inch and a half, and push forward. If done right, it will be quite solid. It may take a few tries to "get it", but you want both the front and middle tangs to slip into place. It doesn't take much force, so don't push it off the stand!
It's easier to show someone how it's done than to describe it, and I'm not good with words, but I "think" you'll find it pretty solid once installed correctly.
Enjoy your new ride, it's a hoot.
Happy New Year
