    How ironic!

    After last weeks rant about how much SL55's have annoyed me, I thought it only right that I post the following: I was coming home from Radcliffe town centre where I was droping my sister off at some seedy pub. Now I don't know the area very well, and it ended up with me in a left only lane...
