I was trailering my bike home after taking my cycle endorsement test and I took a sharp turn and over she went. Luckly it landed on the spare tire of the trailer and didn't cause any damage, but now the right fork is getting oil on it. I changed the seals in early spring and had no oil showing till the bike laid over. It seems to not be changing but is getting oil on it everytime I ride. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Hopefully you did not bend a fork and only dislodged a seal when it tipped over.
I would take the wheel off and check very carefully that the forks are still aligned and not binding, then re-check the seals.
Hope it's a bad seal and not a 'torqued fork'....

If you really cranked the front forks down with ratcheting straps on the trailer, you might have blown the seals. I'm told that you should not compress the shocks more than half-way down when transporting to avoid doing that. If that is not the problem, follow suggestions in previous reply.
