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 [email protected] from the email address you would like on the register so that you can be added.

  • Flat tyre

    No, not me thank god.

    Turned up to a meeting tonight, guy on a bike behind me turns up. Turns out he got a puncture on the ride here ( from bunbury nonetheless). Rode 10kms on a flat to get to the meeting on time.

    What would be the best way to deal with the flat after we get out of this meeting? Puncture repair kit at the servo maybe?

    Edit:located in Belmont

    Tyre is for a Kawasaki zx6r

      Always carry a bike tyre repair kit in your bike. This will get you out of the shit when you're at the side of the road until you can get home or to a tyre shop


      Surely someone there has one? I have a kit but i'm like 50km away...

            It's a common practice in England for motorcycle couriers to use a self tapper coated with superglue to plug holes. A guy on a Triumph forum I'm on had 12 screws in a rear tyre that he replaced while he was a courier in London. The other option is to simply ride. I rode from Toodyay to Canning Vale via Lower Chittering Road on a flat rear; once you're rolling the rotation "inflates" the tyre enough for the Forrest Highway.

                      Thanks Sandra, should have texted me. The tyre was BALD! about a 1/2 inch slit in it, 2 plugs only just slowed the leaking, pumped up to 40 psi, he was going to leave it at a nearby 24hr police station and get picked up. Needed a new tyre.
                      yes, i am ignorant
                      yes, i am a prick
                      no, i don't care
                      you make me sick

                        pfft, he was obviously running slicks, n00b

                        PS: good work, but must have been a bit of a pain in the arse to rescue someone whose lack of maintenance may have partly contributed to the problem due to no tread bufferage

                          clown shoes. always a good idea to leave an obviously unroadworthy vehicle with the cops. i'm betting the front wasn't any better?
