Going straight you can live without fork oil, but going around a nice fast corner you will at some point get this really cool bouncing affect and maybe crash.

Fork oil is part of the rebound control function. I dampens the energy from the springs, you need fork oil so you don't go bouncing down the road pogo stick.
