Not experienced this myself, but then I'm normally changing gear 2nd to 3rd at 90mph, lol...

Many sports bikes are just on the limit of shaking their heads when the conditions are right. I suspect the light front end under acceleration, plus a bit of funny camber / banding in the tarmac provoked it a bit. It's what the damper is for, and with standard setup, BMW will likely have designed in decent margins. I wouldn't drop the top yoke too much - as Ryan said that'll steepen the head angle, change the trail and make it more likely.
