Are There Still Sober Riders On The Forum?
 
I saw this area of the forum as was immediately drawn to it. My sobriety date is 07/05/1983, and I've responded to a couple old posts that date back quite a ways. I used to ride with the 5th Chapter M.C. until it was forcibly disbanded back in 1995. Today, I'm happy to just ride independent, but wouldn't mind finding other like-minded folks. Please respond if you've got some sober time under your belt. If you're from Northern Illinois, that's a plus.

My dad was a president of the Pittsburgh chapter for a time he also rode up until they disbanded. He left and rode with a well know 1% club where he pretty much retired due to health and no longer being able to ride.

I always ride sober. At 20, I learned about asphalt.

No, we are all a bunch of drunks.

Does sort of sober count? (forgive me for trying to add some humor to a serious subject)

I went to one AA meeting 35 years ago. That alone cured me. I always ride sober. If I do have a beer, it is only one, and I don't ride until at least an hour afterwards.

One beer only, that the problem with us alcoolic, we would choose a gallon size bottle and call it one beer.
