 Not really much I can say just now, Front rim has a few busted spokes and out of whack 30mm (15+15 off centre) over about a foot on the circumference....just ordered a new one from CWC.

  I measured the rim width for squash in many places around the circumference, and could only find a maximum difference of about 2mm which was probably how it came particularly at the joint, but not bad for having 10 or 15 tonnes driving over it (steer wheels only- full 7mtr load ~17T + tare ~10T )

 Other busted bits are;
 F-brake lever and bracket,
 clutch lever bracket,
toggle of the Wipac H'Light dimmer switch,
Handle bar seems ok at this stage, and forks only appear slightly twisted
Hella headlight glass and Chrome rim a bit scratched, but serviceable (not bent too much or broken)


   *dunno*                       *work*                *beer*

 The Beemer (I think a 600 single??) had a big chunk out of the front rim bead, busted indicators/fairing/stuff I don't recognize; $$$$$$
