|Sky Rider||Zero tolerance for drinking and driving/riding anything!!! It's just not a smart thing to do. I've been through the rear window of an old 56 Chevy from being rear ended by a drunk driver way back when I was little. I have no sympathy for anyone who drinks and gets behind the wheel or handlebars to drive/ride.|

|EQPlayer||I drink and ride all the time. Of course, I'm drinking water, or sometimes the real hard stuff... un-diet soda...|

I won't ride with anyone drinking. I try to avoid them even when they are sober. (how do I know if they will stay sober on the ride?)

|curtis97322||Hell man... it's easy enough to drop a bike while NOT loaded (I'd NEVER dropped my old bike but this bike has been on it's side 3 times - once sliding, once at a full stop (thought kickstand was down) and once the other day pulling out I hit a slick spot (first rain in a while) while pulling out of a hilly driveway - sideways and down I went)... I can't imagine being dumb enough to drink and then ride - but hey... it's population control right? <g>|

My wife and I both have a zero drinking while riding policy.
I will, however, have up to 3 beers and still drive a car. I play in a couple bands. I will get to the gig, and grab a beer while setting up, then have one after setup, then one during 1st set. After the 1st set, it's nothing but water. By the time 2am rolls around and I'm loaded out and leaving, I've burned the 3 beers out of my system. Regardless, I'd never do that on a bike.
My brother plays in another band that does a lot of bars and events where there is less discrimination around drinking and riding. He told me one time he watched a guy stumble to his HD, get on, drop it, put a huge dent in the tank, say "ah, that happens all the time", get back on, and ride off. I don't go near people who operate like that.
A few weeks ago we went to a bike week event in Wildwood. We took a ferry over the Delaware Bay. 10am, there were people drinking beer and bloody Mary's, then riding their bikes. It's just not a smart thing to do.

I went to Stanley's in Cincinnati to hear the Spookfloaters last night. The bartender, appreciating the fact that I wasn't drinking and riding, kept me going with free tonics w/lime all night!
I only wish that I had been wearing my motorcycle earplugs!

|weh44att||I am 0 talorance on the drinking also. Have seen the after math of,and delt with the conciquences of the whole thing. My son caused a mullty car pile up, lucky no one killed. It is very expensive and hard on the whole family. This is something you do not want to deal with. Very expensive and a long time without a license, had to drive him every where. Then you still pay afterward with the higher car insurance. It is not worth it.|

I have read that roughly half of all motorcycle deaths are alcholol related. Don't drink and ride and you cut your chances of death in half. I like those odds.
I rarely drive my car after even one drink and never after two drinks. I will never ride my bike after drinking.
