Really pissed off. Went to pull in to let a car pass, it was dark and there was gravel.... slipped straight underneath me.
Luckily i have r&g crash bungs so my panels were fine, but my back brake pedal is bent quite bait.
WOuld it be acceptable just to bend it back? As is still works fine.
Cheers for any help guys

I dnt know much about technical stuff, just was willing to add that im sorry that this happend to you the worst dmg that can hit you is the dmg done to your bike :D
hope you going to get it allright again so it wont be looking to bad
and dnt worry life would be way to boring if things like that wouldnt happen
good news is your in one piece and no major dmg on the bike heads up and be brave ill bet anytime soon someone will help you with this problem and
answer it in as much detail as possible. :D

You're fine to bend it back, use a lot of heat if you can- the metal's quite stubborn.
When I came off mine, I only bent it back halfway, I prefer the brake lever bent out more :p

Well done looking to book mine too! you do it on your bike how did you find it? U turn? how about high speed? did you just rev the crap out in second gear or go into third?

i tried on my bike about a month ago, failed on the U turn. This time i had training, everything went smooth and the bike used was really easy to manoeuvre, but it was incredibly slow, revved it as hard as i could in 2nd and just reachers 32mph, if you're doing on the r125 get loads of practise, but you have nothing to worry about on the high speed stuff, just the manouvering
