Pothole damaged wheel

went for a run on M750 yesterday on the A29 near Ockley the road surface was pockmarked with potholes and loads of massive cracks , i was avoiding them by reducing my speed to 50mph it national speed limit on that section until a idiot woman deliberately overtook honking her horn forcing me right into them , massive jolt ,, stooped the bike 50 yds up the road ,, nasty ding in the front rim,,, no loss of air ,, and bike felt ok going the 40 miles home ,, I took photos of the potholes and cracks the one i hit was 8 cm deep another nearby was 15cm deep , the cracks were 5-8cm deep and 10 cm wide very very dangerous ,,

now i need to see who is local and can fix it

Send all the information including pictures to the local council, they should foot the bill to get it repaired.

Feel for you - about 3 weeks ago a yummy Mummy driving one of those huge Porsche SUVs right down the middle of the (just about) 2 lane country road forced me into the verge in the family car.

What I thought was a roadside puddle turned out to be a pothole about 200 mm deep. 137 for a new rear tyre (and thinking about I should probably replace the front one as well as both wheels thumped).

Motoliner - good, recommended

There's a complete front end for sale on ebay (forks/discs/calipers/wheel) if that is of any help to you? Don't know if the seller will split maybe or useful spares or sell on?

It was many years ago, less than 100 I think.

When I picked it up even though I knew the damage was over one of the 3 spokes I could not spot which.
