First time out of garage this year. Brand new tyres and earplugs very well inserted. 50 yards up the road and this happens. Happened at a T junction in 1st gear totally oblivious to the sound of the revs spinning up as I pulled out. Very wary now about being so isolated from the environment especially with new tyres. Any recommendations regarding paint and filler etc? Had a spare brake lever and managed to straighten the brake pedal so not too bad, just a pain in the proverbial.
