Yakkstr

Somewhere

When I was in my early teens, living with my parents, and even before that I had a fantastic view from my bedroom window. There was the wasteland behind the house, then allotments, a river (fuck all, really, because we lived right next to a flood plane), then more soggy wasteland, and way off in the distance, about five or six miles away, the dim reddish glow of an Esso petrol station, at the foot of a suburb, with the lights of the houses twinkling behind it.

I used to look out of that window, when I was alone and full of teenage angst, and feel her. She's out there, I know she is. Mrs Right. The one that I'm meant to be with. I used to wonder if she was in one of the houses with the twinkling lights, in a warm, perfumed room, looking down from the hill, across the reddish glow from the petrol station, across the wasteland and river, allotments and flood planes, at the dark area where my house sat, staring across the miles at my cold sepia room, unable to see through the darkness, and wonder where I am.

Leaving Yakkstr
In the past six months I've acquired two franchises. I pay over £2,000 in tax each month. I don't use NHS. I ran away from education. And the police - I can take care of myself. I just fail to see why I should pay for your kids with 50% of my read the rest

New bike
Its actually not too bad spraying a bike at home. You only really need to do the tank on a cruiser. It depends on what colour one I buy. If I buy one that looks gorgeous then I'll leave it as it is. Its just a case of stripping the paint down, priming it read the rest

Good philosophy. I've met countless bikers that have had to wait until their 20s, and instead of riding a low powered machine for 4 years (which is what has to happen if you start at 17), they've gone straight onto high-powered read the rest
