I drink, sometimes I drink untill the world spins. I never get on the bike if I've been drinking. (more than two beers) I might enjoy A good beer with dinner or lunch but that is the extent of it untill the bike is parked for the night. Then... all bets are off.
I drink good beer. I drink beer to enjoy the taste of it. Many of these are higher content than the yellow swill frat boys and rednecks drown themselves in. Sometimes it catches up with me (about halfway through the third in an hour I may start to feel the buzz. Which is why I moderate. I have been caught off guard and slept in my leathers outside. Still better than saddleing up and risking everything. I know my limits and I know I was lucky in my early twenties.
Around here the busses are free and run after last call. And the only two things you can get arrested for are DUI or being combative. Since I'm not the fighty type and I take the buss I've managed to avoid the couple grand many of my freinds have paid out in legal fees.
