Hey there. I commute to work everyday and today was no different except that I struck a piece of wood on the hwy today. It looked like one of those blocks that trucks stick behind their wheel to prevent rolling. Anyways, I was changing lanes behind a large flatbed semi-truck (low visibility). As I finished my shoulder check I was headed straight for this hunk of wood. Tried to evade it but pretty much nailed it with front tire at 80km/h,
I stood up on the pegs and loosened the arms to brace for an impact. It struck my front tire, bottomed out my font forks and threw the TL into the air just a bit and then my back wheel ran over it(a little off the side). After the bike settled down after being jostled I just kept going…nothing seemed wrong.
I’m just wondering what damage I should be looking for. As I said, the forks bottomed out pretty good but the fork seals don’t appear to be leaking. No lower fairing to bung up. Any idea what area to check when a bike goes through such a violent impact? Frame tweaking? Steering head? Suspension internals?
