So, I was riding to see a friend, and there was construction works on the road. The ****ers left quite a big hump of dirt diagonally across the road, and when I tried to mount it, the bike slipped and down I go.
It wouldn't be much of a problem (crash bars did their job - even the blinker stayed intact), if there wasn't for a wall on the side of the road, which I hit head on as I tried to get the bike under control. Straight on with front wheel.
It couldn't have been more than 30kmph (18mph), quite probably even less.
I am getting the bike to the shop on Friday, but of course, my mind is wondering if there could have been any serious damage to the front fork from this??
One thing I did notice afterwards that if I take the hands off, it starts to wobble slightly at 60kmph (37mph?). The thing is, I have no idea if it did before as I do not tend to drive without my hands
the wobbling is very slight, and it calms down as soon as the speed gets below 60kmph. It also might pull the right a bit, but that could also be due to the fact I have problems with balance (****ed up inner ear).
As I drove ~200km back home through the twisties, it seemed to handle just as before, didn't notice any issues leaning into the curves. Naturally, I didn't really push her before I get her inspected.
So, any experience what I might expect from all this?
