Default Ah Man I Crashed!

     

well yesterday i had been riding in the field behind my house for about 1/2 an hour. the whole time my dog had been following me like he always does but, on the last lap he had stopped to look at something he'd seen or smelled. when i came back around i went to pass by him, i was almost to powerband in 3rd gear when he turned around and ran out in front of me without me realizing it 'till it was too late (i wasn't paying much attention ). i hit him right in the front shoulder and with the speed of him running, my front tire slid out from under me like hitting gravel in a hard turn on pavement(he is a pretty big dog). when it was over he got up growled a little bit and ran back home, i was on the ground under my cr125r. after i realized that i was ok other than my shoulder hurting and my right ankle twisted up under the bike, i picked up myself and my bike. the bike was fine except for the handle bars. the right side was bent back about 6 inches. does anyone konw of an easy way to bend them back. i kind of like the shape of the new bend, would it be safe to bend the other side to match (not by wrecking again ). if its to much trouble i do have the original bars that are perfectly fine. anyways any ideas would be helpful, i'll shut up now

So much for Lassie going to get help. I'm sorry bro, I couldn't help myself.

Glad you are ok, and no I wouldn't go bending handlebars on purpose, replace them.
