    Welcome to the site, roundabouts are fairly intimidating to new riders. Glad you are OK. Can't help you with service in Sydney but the most common thing is bent handlebars or the front shocks have moved in the triple clamp so it isn't plumb anymore. They are fairly easy fixes but if you are not familiar wit hthe technique it is best to get a mechanic to do it.

    A few options in Artarmon try
