Funny what goes through your mind...

8 April 2015 - 9:39am
Or is it?

Usual attempt at taking me out with a left hook, woman moves out into the right hand lane to overtake and then swings left to try to make the turn whilst not actually having cleared me.
Fortunately much braking by both of us and a collision is averted.

However as the car swings across and I'm admiring the indicator that apparently means I should have given way I remember also admiring the shiny side of her car and wondering how best to angle the bike to get the metal pedals to leave a decent scratch - ideally one that's an indent too.

It's funny but events like this don't cause me to panic so I usually find I've got time to consider the options...
