Hi mate, thought you'd stopped all that Ram rading sh#t these days :008:  Hows Bro ?
Well, you've got to earn a quid :164:
Steve's fine thanks, but not had his bike on the road for a while, even though I give him a bit of grief :001:
Hope you're good yerself mate.

EEk! And I thought South Africa was the only place that had a rim-retirement program in place. Since you have such a soft bend, it should be easily repaired by a competent shop. I'd give it a shot at the prices you mention.
I've been watching Ichy Boots on youtube, she found a few 'bumpy' roads in SA :005:

The new enlightened government is too busy with keeping the power on to attend to roads. Oh, sorry, that's off too. Must be water. Oh no, that's also not working. Must be all the effort of getting lunch arranged every day for the hordes of family members who have been given government jobs. Good situation for solar panel providers, water tank manufacturers and rim-straightening folks.

Update:
The used front wheel is in pretty good order, not as grotty as in the ad photo :062:
I sent the rear to Maidstone Motoliner on Tuesday, got back Thursday, all fixed, thanks @Tiggersteve  :062:
I rode back to visit the pothole today, 45mm deep which is deeper than the local councils 40mm minimum for claims :062:

Our council say to report potholes with pics if 3 inch deep or more. How could we, we'd be dead.

Good luck with the claim, it's likely to go on a while.
