    Needing a 2015 F700GS Front wheel ASAP, BMW camping trip this weekend. MmsCamera_2020-10-22-12-28-05.jpg Safe after swiping a 10ft metal square beam in my lane on I-75 South, right before the 7th Street Exit. Was able to Limp it to Piston Society Shop, with a wobble, thought it only lost some air, thankful there was plenty of room to cross over 1 lane, rode up the exit ramp and got off bike right before bus stop at the light. Then life set in with the shakes.

    Holy cow. Glad you are okay. Give yourself a pat on the back for keeping your cool and navigating a dangerous situation.

    Can’t help with the rim (that damage is amazing), but hopefully someone else can.

    When your trip is over, I’d be interested to hear more details about the impact and aftermath...

    I see a number of front wheels on ebay, must have been quite the hit, good skills kept you upright?

    There only 2 wheels on EBAY. One is in New York, multiple dings, other is grey in Colorado.

    Mabey try the adventure in ohio thread for more hits. A dealership, cycle trader might have some bikes for sale you can work out a deal with owner to loan till you get back. could borrow my wheel but I'm on the opposite side of state in cleveland.mine is also grey.

    Bra! Looking at that, you charmed. I’d still be shaking. Rent/borrow bike for trip?

    Well, on the bright side if you have comprehensive coverage this is a covered event. Just incase you end up having to buy a new rim $$

    Did you find a rim? I didn't think about it at the time but if you'd called the nearest dealership at the time you posted this, you probably would have had a wheel on Friday.
