What's That On The Forks?
So, I'm doing a little tightening/cleaning/wiring on Carpathia. I'm down near the front wheel aiming the Motolights, and I notice, on each front fork leg, a small forward-facing tab with a threaded hole at about 2" above the front axle. I'm thinking that BMW used these forks on another model (one that didn't have the integrated turn-signals with reflectors, like the LT) and maybe these tabs were used to attach a couple of side reflectors---for DOT compliance, you know.
Anyone know for sure?
