    I see were you've gone wrong dude,


    When you were supposed to hit the yoke, you smack the shit outta the fork tops !!!


    You should of used a rubber nosed hammer mate, would have saved all that damage.


    You tried Pete, failing that try a breakers, you need to find someone with bent forks that there willing to break. I will keep my ears open for ya !!!


    Cheers,
