If your not familiar with suspension have a pro look at it. That looks pretty far off if you can see it in a photo, thats bad.
You can't always see a bend visually. The problem is if it compresses and it is bent, it can stick in the position. Thats dangerous.
It could also be a bent tree, wheel axle, wheel bearing. Don't confuse the bars being straight with the trees being straight. Is your clipon bent?
You can put it on a tree stand or support the front end. Take the wheel and forks off. Check the front axle. Check your trees and retorque the head bolt. Lay your forks next to each other and see if you see a bend. Go over everything twice and find the problem before you ride it.
