Beer tastes like shit. If it doesn't have alcohol in it, what's the point? 6yrs last Saturday.

30 yrs sober now and really don't give a shit if I get pulled over... I ride a bit more conservative these days ... less need for speed ... not out late at night... and most of my friends are sober too... who knew it would all end this way...

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since I posted. I picked up 10 years Feb 14th. I sold my sporty and bought a KLR650 which I LOVE!

That's what I'm saying, I don't miss the taste at all!
I saw a dude walking out of the grocery store a while back with three cases of O'Douls, and couldn't help thinking that's gotta be the lamest party ever, or there's gonna be some mighty disappointed people!!

If you are 300 lbs, but should be 180 your blood alcohol level reflects intake somewhere near your ideal weight.
Unless you are 6'9'' 300 lbs won't help you.

I have found sobriety very satisfying

If I'm riding and stop at a bar (don't usually) and decide I want a beer I have an O'Douls Amber if they have it, a regular O'Douls if they don't. I like the taste of a good cold beer.
