    while on my Hurricane 'bent.
    He thought he would teach me a lesson because I should have been on the adjacent cycle path. I know this because when I caught up with him at the lights half a mile later and drew up on his right (I was turning right), he half opened his car door to shout at me and use the most surprisingly vile language. The thing is, he was about seventy five and his white-haired missus was sitting next to him!
    Anyway, he drives a very distinctive car and I know where he always parks in town. Half an hour later he had two flat tyres. I wonder how that happened?

    It's odd how getting behind the wheel turns people into complete f*****g nutters. How many other activities would induce someone to risk the life of a person delaying them slightly?

    Whilst not every motorist is guilty of this, a worryingly large number seem to be.

    Do you remember when you used to be able to buy Schrader valve caps with a built in valve remover? Have used one of those to great effect on occasion!

    You see if he were a cyclist he'd have had two spare tubes and it would have been no problem.

    I understand from a 'friend' that cutting the valve stem off a wheel can be quite upsetting for a driver as well.

    There is no way that he can know it was me, he cannot know that I know where he always parks his car, although he may put two and two together.

    But if I do indeed stop pos.........uhg!:biggrin:
