Doing a headcheck this morning (and checking on my riding partners position), and I collected a really decent-sized pothole. God damn what the hell was that! Noticed a rhythmic sensation through the bars, pulled over, and saw a decent hit in the front rim (rear is fine). I think my steering dampener saved me from crashing. Repair is around $300. No guarentee if it's possible. New rim is $1800. Question is, can the council/vicroads be liable for any of the damage? Or am I bending over for this one?
