Filling Station

The driving rain sucked away my enthusiasm a little and, if I hadn't actually had a destination already decided upon, I'm fairly sure I would have stayed at home. The grand opening of a new biker cafe was the lure and I was determined to get there. I would be lying if I said I wasn't showing off when I pulled up on the Harley but I thought it would make a better spectacle to have ancient american iron parked up outside among all the other bikes. The owner seemed pleased if a little surprised that I would ride such an old machine in such bad weather. I brushed it off nonchalantly but nearly regret it as I set off just a little too late, loaded with caffeine and nicotine and jittery as hell. I am aware that the sparto tail-light is little better than a reflector on bicycle so I made my own space in the spray on the twilight road home. It all passed totally without incident but I made a mental note to either leave earlier or drink less coffee.

The new cafe is great. If you are ever near Keswick drop in at The Filling Station.

It's hard to be silent when you read contentious issues debated badly on a public forum. I would hope that my voice would shine out like a beacon of reason but I feel it would get lost in the morasse of random, pointless shit-talking. So I stay silent, repeating the mantra; It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt. It helps a little but I wish other internet pundits would entertain the same thought. 

Dream on.
