    If you think you're "ok" after "a few".... next time you have two beers try a couple of slow parking-lot u-turns. The difference just one or two make (I weigh 230) scared the poo out of me.

    Like some others, I firmly believe that my liver is inherently bad and must be punished, but I always wait until I'm done for the day. Kbasa is right, it just makes that first one of the evening (or morning) taste that much better.

    Why don't they make a Nerf Martini Glass?

    The Hurt Report stats on drinking and riding are just scary (who cares how long ago the study was done or whatever... the drinking connection is scary).

    Never

    I wait until I am done with the ride. It's just plan stupid. Sort of like Howard Dean thinking he could ever win the democratic nomination. Plain Stupid.

    Not that I really want to get back into this. BTW Hi Rider buddy .

    I am still trying to figure out how he pissed away the $41 mil. That's some serious ****. It would be interesting to find out where it all went.

    The guy was an idiot, I recognized it from day one - no depth to him at all. What scares me is that he took it as far as he did.

    So Rider, what is the next subject we will be finding ourselves agreeing upon?

    Pretty scary - both have black GS's, both hate Howard Dean. Uncanny!

    I agree with Rad - there is nothing like a beer after a long day of riding! I'm scared to drink and ride - I feel a bit buzzed after just one beer. Heck, have to limit my N/A beer drinking if I'm riding because they have a small amount of alcohol.

    Confession time though, once at a club function I did have half a glass of some creamy dark lager just because it was something that I hadn't tried before.

    Can't wait to have a loooooong ride and then a cold one,

    It was 50 and sunny here today, but I am too dang sick to ride I can barely get my leg over the saddle and make whining noises as I look out the garage door.

    I agree with you all. The beer will have to wait until the end of the ride.

    Hey Boxergrrrlie, it's nice and warm here now- come on down for a good ride and I know plenty of places with good cold tasty refreshing BEEEEEEEERRRRRRRR for afterward!

    Two comments...or maybe three.

    A. I don't drink. Period. Because I used to -- a lot.

    B. The last time I drank lunch was 1979, and I destroyed a
    perfectly good Kawasaki 650 by taking into a curb because I couldn't think fast enough.

    C. A friend invited me on a Poker Run last year. Not to make a blanket judgement, but it was mainly HD riders. In eight hours, riding with my friend, we had traveled 90-miles and visited seven taverns. And, it wasn't over!
    One fellow said that his club liked riding in that county, because you could drink and drive there, and the police didn't care.
    Case in point: my friend is a cop.

    Thumbs down Drink and Drive?

    I've paid the price with four wheels and do not care to pay the price with two...

    Life is too short...

    There is nothing better than a drink after a ride, though...period.
