Topic - Almost came off due to inconciderate prat.

|I was riding down a hill on a back road in Scotland and went to overtake a cyclist on a righthand bend with very good visability all the way round the corner and beyond.|
As my front wheel came level with his back wheel he decided to cut the corner and without so much as a shoulder check he swung over to the right side of the road and had I not slammed on the brakes we would have ended up in a heap on the road no doubt with 1/4 ton of motorbike on the top.
Fortunatly I paid the extra for ABS and managed to stay upright.
The cyclist was totally oblivious to me and only realised I was there when I hit my horn, at that point he realised what he had done and took off over a field before I could have a quiet chat with him.
I know no one will care about this but I thought it might make a good counter point to the bike v milk truck thread.
