Must be one of the numerous wonders of the business-first ideology (sorry ;-)

Hey, businesses are people too!  :013:

The roads here in NYC are pretty much designed as defensive trenches to prevent a foreign land invasion.

Just throwing this out, but aren't the spokes still laced onto a cast wheel? It would have been interesting to see one of your buddies riding with you on his XCA to hit that same pot hole... :164:

You got a tire and wheel package for your bike?
Didn't know something like that was offered for motorcycles.
The auto bent wheel thing is something that can keep me busy if it decides to rain here in California, I repair automobile wheels.

Yeah, I always get it for my bikes (and the missus too) - I think it's worth it. If I use it even once, it pays for itself. I have it for the car as well. I didn't know CA had potholes - just pots.

Can you not claim off yourlocal authority, after all it is their responsibility . UK authorities pay out millions every year for pot hole compo, more probably than they spend on repairs.

I actually work for the City in which this occurred. A third party handles these claims..... we'll see.  Fingers crossed.

A few years back myself and few mates were touring round Scotland - we all hit a massive pothole on a road - the Tiger was fine but a GSXR1000 was not so lucky - 2 bent rims which the local council eventually paid  for !! Probably cheaper to fix the pothole !!

You just gave me an idea. I should approach the city government to work out a deal to repair wheels they may be responsible for damaging.
I’ve had people call me to try and get the city to pay for a new wheel. They need advice which I really can’t give.
