thanks for the replies old beer and Eddieb.
They didn’t replace the forks as far as I know.
The insurance company aren’t wriggling yet I’m just keen to figure out what went wrong.
In both cases I wasn’t riding aggressively or tentatively and I’ve never experienced anything close to it on that bike from new. And after being off bikes for a few years I was seriously rusty for the first few thousand kms.
I can’t shake the feeling that it goes back to the insurance rebuild and new rear tyre.
As I am recuperating I’m contemplating whether I carry on riding or not (nudged by my family’s questions). It would help if I could pin down something fixable rather than writing it off to coincidence.
Feeling like I may not be able to trust that bike again and should be looking to trade it on a dr or klr 650 who’s quirks are better known.
Maybe the repairer would be willing to investigate for a mechanical cause, unfortunately with neither arm working I can’t get to it and poke around.
