1968 BMW On the Move

This was the introduction of the telescopic forks.  The models became known with the suffix US.  BMW was using the /2 as a test bed for the upcoming /5 series.  The fork angle wasn’t correct for this fork.  The forks weren’t produced with parts that allowed for proper alignment.  The result was high-speed wobbles in many bikes.  I was the “expert witness” in one lawsuit against BMW resulting in the death of the rider.  BMW ended up settling the case.
