You are right on about this but did you ever see the bike's parked in the parking lot on bike night. that is why I brought this this post up Just trying to look out for the fellow biker's. been there and done that no what I mean.DHandyman said:I'm actually kind of surprised its a topic that even has to be brought up.. I have a simple rule about it, If you've had even 1 beer and you're on your bike, you're not riding home anywhere near me, and if I can have my way you're going to be arriving at your home in a cab
That is great if you ask me... I would rather them be too strict, instead of letting people go who are bad to be on the road...JRs DAD said:BigBen, while your rule is a fact.....
Florida has adopted a "buzz" driving deal.....and if you "smell" like any kind of alcohol.....you can still be ticketed.....and, of course, that consists of going to jail with your vehicle being imponded.
Couldn't have said it better myself :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: I can't tell tell you how many times I go to a Bike Night and see people pounding down the suds??? Anything that decreases your reaction time or more importantly your judgement when riding on two wheels is stupidity, plain and simple!!!steve j said:any, IMO. That was another reason I quit completely back in 01'. Too many people talk all the bad trash about DUI and accidents then they want to hit a watering hole on their bike. Any IMPAIRMENT is too much and that pertains to over the counter and scrip medication too. You had better have every single wit about you when you swing a leg over one of these. I have been riding for over 34 years and it's one of the reasons I am still alive.
I know very well how much trouble can be caused, no matter how good of a rider you are... have had two cagers try and take me out... both times been nothing I could do to really avoid things...LionsGate said:BigBen will understand what I'm saying about this next guy. His idea of fun was to take his CBX up on the 610 Loop in Houston and race around all the traffic. The guy rode it much of the time with just tennis shoes, shorts and a t-shirt. Said it was too hot in Houston for anything else. He did not own a helmet. Said a helmet would take his edge off and that he was too good to go down.
Ben, you know as well as myself, you can be a perfect driver/rider and there will still be at least a half dozen people just waiting to kill you on the Loop. The guy was just kidding himself. If I live to be a hundred, I'll never understand how some folks think.
