Bike dropped, handlebars bent making the right side farther back than the left. So it feels as if you are turning a bit to the right to go straight.
Can a mechanic straighten them or does it need replacing? Replacement cost is £98.02 (excl. delivery). plus I have no idea what to do about transferring the heated grips so would need to add labour to get someone to do it for me.
Just had a big service, new chain, and need new tyres very within the next 500 miles. Also need to replace a panel (£98.81), indicator lens (£15.25), and the muffler cover (£51.13), though that can wait. So a bit of an expensive time already.
Not sure if I am just unlucky or really bad at riding. Another one where it feels like it is not my fault, but thinking that makes it feel like I am making excuses.
Went to make a right turn into a lay-by, and the next moment I was laying on the ground. This is where:
And this is what it looks like now:
Trying to avoid the mess on the left I missed the pile of road-coloured gravel in the middle. So finished off straightening after the turn on it and you can see where it sent the tyre instead. No time to do anything about it, straight over,
You should be able to sue the council for that. Though I am guessing that is not possible or they would not have let their roads gets into such a dangerous state.
My thumb is very sore and stiff, but not swollen and at least I did not break anything this time. Though I am not as important as the bike, I can be repaired for free!
Very fed up.
