Bent rim

I bent my front rim today & am wondering if it can be fixed. Just a small bend which seems to be one side only near the spoke. The tire still holds air, but when driving you can feel it.

 

I understand a fix is possible, but is it safer to just replace it? ($$ ulp!)

Thanks!

My front wheel got a slight flat spot in it after hitting a rough railroad crossing three years ago. The Frame Man in Sacramento (motorcycleframeman.com) did a great job fixing it. They were very realistic about whether they could conservatively fix it with enough margin for safety. I'm comfortable with the results.

Your's may be fixable; just depends on how bad it is.
