I too was knocked off a bike in Lancaster, but not my mtb, oh no it was my new Triumph TT600.
An old fart who had glasses that can only be likened to ashtrays with straps on them came out with the classic line "I didn't see you mate" I replied with "no you didn't 'cos I'm Marvo the Magician"
When I explained to him he had just managed to write £6k of brand new motorbike he shrugged his sholders and replied "well your ok I'll get back to the wife."
At this point I really did want to happy slap him
A total DICKHEAD, he probably was a drugs and gang crime lord who was stoned off his own gear, whilst driving his "purple rinse bitch magnet micra."
Needless to say, I stay away from the place it's cursed.
Going that fast , i'm sucking Rabbits out of the hedges !
