    I was going home the other night when I heard a big lorry engine behind, no problem just keep going it was a double lane section anyway. Then there was a loud bang (explosion) and a severe sqealing of brakes. My cadence shot up to about 5000 rpm (slight exaggeration) and a glance over the shoulder revealed a large truck with a blown tyre. Needed a drink when I got home to settle the nerves of course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A lucky escape there me thinks!! Just be thankful it wasn't overtaking you at the time!

    spen666 I think Keith was justified to have a wee drink when he got home. That would shake anyone up!

    Weel, they do say you should try and raise you heart rate at least once a day, after which a wee nip is thoroughly deserved...
