I fell over after hitting this SUNKEN MANHOLE COVER!

Yeah, claim the shit out of that, there's some seriously bad sunken manhole covers about. They just re-layer the road constantly and ignore them, if there was a car up your arse it could have been alot worse...
Metal covers mid corner is always fun. Or even the wee metal tabs on the road at traffic lights. Wild slippy even on good tyres
Key to go over man holes is lean back on your bike. I guess folks that ride dirt bikes know this technique. It's not fun getting squirrelly after a pot hole.
Heal quick and hope you get sorted
I hit a car at 25mph and have less bike damage you must have gone down hard
Did it go a bit like this Shah?
3" under level on 12" wheels, not 21" wheels off a Motocrosser.
Jacob Gearing I have a feeling the fork would have bottomed out from the drop then been coil-locked already when it hit the other side. I don't think it will "go squirrely" but more likely dead stop the wheel and throw him off.
Exactly Aaron Mortimer and with the front forks bottoming out. The bike sounded like it's had smashed when the forks gave in. If I do get this money then I'm getting my full license and getting a bigger bike and keep the MSX for fun.
I should be able to sort you out with some adjustable cnc shorty levers. One has a little scuffed, but I can blend it out. Won't be home until weekend though, so can't promise to get them to you before this time next week.
That sucks, are those the trusty vee rubbers I can see?
