Had my first close call today, the day I placed an order for a MD80 as I'd like to have a record in case something bad ever happened! I was coming around this corner and had moved towards the centre of the road (is this called primary or secondary?) to avoid the bumpy drain cover just after the signpost when some idiot passed me around the outside of the nearside lane, despite a clear outer lane I gesticulated a sort of what-was-that, only got a brake test treatment followed up a nice middle finger. Cant wait for the cam to arrive! Nice to get the first "OI!" out of the way since starting to commute on bike. I was thinking Northampton might be a cyclists paradise until then, having read all the stories about other peoples close calls!
