Exclamation This is what can happen...

Ok so me and seven other people were out riding tonight on 610. All of a sudden I see a chunk of concrete about 5 feet wide dead in front of me in the darkness. By the time I noticed what was going on I was already over it and well on my way to laying the bike down. Luckily I got it under control and nothing more than a bent up rim came out of it.

All I'm trying to say is please be carefully out there people. Some times what can happen is completely out of your control.


Also, would anyone happen to know where I could get this repaired at?

Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited has a good guy he uses. if you wanna save some money, and your tire is still holding air...put a towel over the bend, and take a rubber mallet to it.

glad to hear the situation didn't end up worse. be safe.

I think an angel is this short end of things. I seriously don't know how I could have saved my once much less twice in the same situation.

The same thing happened about four weeks ago with a 20lbs rock that had fallen off the back of a landscaping truck. I jumped about a foot in the air and landed right back down.

now I need to seriously take it easy until next riding season.

please do.....a friend of mine, and member to this board Eric Roman....was a very talented, fast, and experienced rider on and off the track. he was riding 610 and hit a 2x4 and lost his life. this can happen to anyone. the fast or the slow.....msf or not.....you can't avoid something you can't see, and you sure can't avoid it going 100+mph at it.

please don't let the ones that passed away die in vain. learn from their mistakes.

Just get another wheel bro...don't mess with trying to straighten that junk, it will never balance out the same, at least not without a pound of weight somewhere else...That is a tank slapper waiting to happen.

Get on ebay, find you a used wheel.



I to have nailed a 2x4 in the road going around a blind, uphill right near lake livingston....I was leaned over, came up on the 2x4 that was covering almost the whole lane, nothing I could do but hit it at about 35mph...Lowsided the busa.....was able to ride it home but all the bodywork was toast....

Becareful out there guys! Wear your gear.

stop listing what u sold here - nobody cares...






i just had to remove a post from somebody who apparently was there last night - so just a reminder everyone, if you were there and were travelling at an excessive rate of speed do not post anything related to the speed you or anybody else was going...

1. you don't want to tell us
2. we don't want to know
3. it's admissable evidence in court

get it?... good... glad it wasn't worse... +1 on taking it to m/u, you REALLY don't want to be riding around on a rim like that...

Glad ur ok bro; I'd replace with something like that; I know straightening is an option but safety first with a bend like that. Metal doesn't like to contort too much before weakening

Kinda expensive to do as you will spend more in shipping then buying a used rim, but these guys apparently fix rims the right way.... they don't bend the rim back into shape, they actually heat it and add weight and durability back in.... http://www.metrowheels.net/motorcyclewheelrepair.htm

I had that happen to me on the 59 to 45 interchange, I hit that concrete in the middle lanes going about 80-90... i saved the bike only to see a freakin' dent in the rim, for me buying off of ebay was cheaper than trying to get it repaired.... not real keen on just pounding the rim back into shape... my two cents...
