Okay, now I see/know a little more. This is just amazing and scary as hell. I hit 85-90 on mine all day. I hope you just have a bad batch of forks, and it's not some redesign issue with the '11 model year. Didn't they move production in the past year or so? Damn, I jumped my bike, rode it off-road with some pretty aggressive surfaces, hit potholes at 75mph....well, you get the picture. Now, if this is a bike failure, make sure your insurance does not take the hit (as in you had an accident - your premium goes up). I would go after BMW for a new bike and gear. I hate it when people sue people, so I'll not even go there, but if the manufacturer screwed up, you should get all new stuff at least. File the complaint.
