So on the way home, I hit this MASSIVE pot hole on US23. I hit it so hard that it sounded like all the plastics broke. I pulled over but nothing seems wrong and it rides/corners fine. I'm getting the oil changed on Tuesday morning before taking it into the mountains of NC for the weekend. Should I have service take a look at anything specifically to make sure it's ok? I'm not trying to over react but I am going on a 500+ mile trip. I don't want something to go wrong and end up flying over a cliff! TIA! :)

Well, I'm not too worried about the fender/plastics but I will check. I just want to make sure nothing will interfere with the handling. I can deal with plastic. ;)

Thanks B! :) :love:

How are the wheels and tires? Nothing damaged with them?

Keep an eye out for oil leaks. I doubt if you would have one, but just in case. Leaking oil would not be a good thing.

Good luck!

I'd look for a bent rim. Otherwise, it sounds like you're ok. Have a nice trip!
