A van reversed into my parked GL1500 yesterday and bent one of the forks. It's only a slight bend and I'm wondering whether to get it straightened or buy a new fork. The price of a new one is 2.5 times more than getting the old one straightened. I have a niggling doubt about repair, bearing in mind the Wing is no lightweight.

I decided to order a new one. The guy in the repair shop persuaded me, as he told me he wouldn't offer a guarantee that the repaired fork would last or that the chrome wouldn't flake off etc. With that amount of confidence in his work I decided a new fork would be a better option!

Job all done yesterday. New fork installed and new seals & oilin both forks. The van driver was a bit slow paying the bill until I told him I was going to go through his insurance instead. He coughed up straight away then!
