CLick for Rules for Roadside Assist Section

STRICT RULES & INFORMATION FOR THIS SECTION:

WARNING: This is not a general discussion section. This section is reserved expressly for post started by those people in need of IMMEDIATE breakdown assistance. Please do not START a thread in here unless you need assistance. Any registered user may RESPOND to a thread started by the person who needs assistance, but no banter please, keep this strictly on topic so valid communications can be easily referenced.

This is not an accident or injury response section. If you have had an accident and are injured, please call 000 for assistance.

If you need breakdown assistance support from a PSB volunteer, please do as follows:

1) Ensure you and your bike are in a safe location to prevent exposure to damage and personal injury. If you are injured and need medical assistance, contact 000.
2) Create a new post in this section with the subject titled “Help Wanted – Suburb”.
3) In the body of the post please put as much detail as you are able including but not limited to:

(a) A good description of your actual location including street name, direction, nearest cross street, or any other information that you feel would be of assistance for someone trying to find you.
(b) Details on what the issue and the kind of assistance you need. EG: “Bike broken down, both bike and I require movement to Victoria Park”.
(c) Provide details of where you and/or bike need transport to.
(d) Provide your mobile telephone number if available.

If you don’t have a phone that has internet access to make the above post then contact someone who does have internet access and they can create a post for you.

If you are able, continue to monitor this thread for updates and responses.

What will happen now:

1) When you create a thread in this section an email is sent to all regsitered PSB volunteers automatically. It will also be monitored by those using the forum at the time.
2) They will visit this thread for details, and if able to respond will make a post accordingly.
3) If you have provided your mobile number, the respondent will likely make contact with you to let you know they are on their way and provide an ETA.

NOTE: This is not an accident response thread, meaning to say, if you have had an accident and you are injured, please contact 000 and ask for an Ambulance. This section is to respond to non life threatening or injury situations.

For the avoidance of doubt (and stupidity) do not post in this section if you are wanting help moving your bike somewhere were it does not relate to assistance required for an immediate breakdown need.

If you have a bike trailer or other facilities that could assist PSB Members who have broken down, and would like to register as a PSB Assist member, please email deej@perthstreetbikes.com from the email address you would like on the register so that you can be added.

  • Need a ute or something

    Hey guys, I'm currently sitting at Curtin University Security because some cunt decided to damage my bikes ignition. I can't actually get the key all the way in, so hoping to get a lift with a ute or someone with a trailer because I can't start my bike. If possible, call me on 0424349198. Need a lift to Spearwood.

    Post it up in the PSB Roadside Assistance section. That will probably get you a quicker response.
    If you love your motorcycle, set it free. If it comes back, you probably high-sided.

          If the ignition switch is stuffed then just do what thieves do and jam a large flat blade screwdriver into it so that you can turn it. Painful to do to your bike, but it should work.

          There's not much to it - I see this sort of damage to bikes at auction regularly.

          Once you've got your bike fixed later on, start putting a disc lock on the front brake and one of those fluorescent cables to go from the lock to the handlebars. That way you a) won't forget about the lock and b) the amateur thieves won't touch the bike because they also will see it.

          Good luck.

            I'm still at work and might struggle to be able to drop you home/to work before going out. Will keep an eye on the thread and will see what I can do if you still haven't got a pick up.
            PS: do you have the steering lock on? If so, can the key still be turned to take the lock off? Loading it is going to be a bitch otherwise

              I'm leaving work in about 25 minutes or so from West Perth.
              I could swing down to Curtin and pick you up and drop you off in Spearwood. It isn't that far out for me since I'm am going south-ish.
              I can't do anything about trailering your bike though.
              If you love your motorcycle, set it free. If it comes back, you probably high-sided.

                    Sounds good guys. Much appreciated. I'll let security know someone is coming to get the bike, as its currently in their compound.

                      Just noticed that it's a GPX. Would be worth making a quick trip to a wrecker, buying a replacement ignition switch (with key) and putting it on. Would need tools and some basic mechanical knowledge though.
