sober since 7/10/84. Used to get on the bike when I knew I was too drunk to drive the truck. Insanity? No doubt about it. Quit a month after my daughter was born. Best decision I ever made.

I know it was Aug 12th, and sometime between 1988 & 1990, just plum forgot, I have it writ down somewhere. Dont really matter any more.

I learned a long time ago, I can do a whole bunch of stuff, and one thing I cant.
I like them odds

You can count me into the sober crowd. 8 1/2(ish or more) years now. After the 27 year trainwreck. No going back now.

After watching booze wreck some of my family I was hesitant to start. Got really loaded twice. Got so friggin' sick I just came to the conclusion me and booze don't get along. Also lost a cousin to a drunk driver while he was out riding. Watched a close friend lose his job, house and license to a DUI accident. None for me.
