HIGH SPEED WOBBLES on my F800 GS

At about 70 mph. or 112.65 kilometers per hour my bike began to feel wobbly on asphalt.
I'm running new TKC 80's.
I assumed it was the non-adjustable, upside-down forks and replacing them, - replacing the springs, and using heavier weight oil was an option for a remedy.
- My local BMW dealer told me it was my tires. - I checked my tire pressure and wear.
I adjusted my bike for my ride, using:

On the Interstate without wind or trucks to give me turbulence -
Still, a wobble.

So I bought a steering damper.
Installed it.
Adjusted it, as prescribed.
Wobble gone.
- Stabilized in Idaho.
