So I took my GSXR to Switzland, France and Germany, a little bit of Italy as well

The last night we didn't trust the hotel so left back for the UK a day early. All was going well until I hit a cone, jumped the bike and thought 'that was lucky'


Until a couple of days later when I got to wash my bike down..

Ahh man, that sucks. Can you get it straightened or is it done for? At least it didn't take you out!
How was the trip?

Wow, good job keeping on the road when that happened.
Get it checked out at ur favourite bike garage. If the wheel is still true then it should be possible to knock that back in.

A few racer mates mates have highly recommended motoliner based in Kent (UK)

Can't believe I ride another 200-300 miles like it and didn't know

Wow, no wobble or anything? Hopefully they can get it straightened out for you.

Been there, done that.. Easily repairable.. Take it to a wheel specialist, they have the machine to fix it. The rim tape will be destroyed, and the paint around the raise lip area will also be destroyed. Since the rim is black, spray painting the repaired section will make it not so obvious.

You're lucky it's minor and did not break the air seal between the rim and tire else the tire would have gone flat.
