Have another drink?

Kevin, at MC Rider, produces some great videos but this, in my opinion, is one of his best, yet. Watch this -- it's sobering.

Message is on point sir and well taken.

There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.

Preaching to the Choir.

I’m not in that Choir, and seldom am convinced of anything by preachers who see everything in black and white.

I will continue to enjoy an occasional beer with my burger and fries when I ride; and at my age am positive I’m in more mortal danger from the burger and fries. But that is my choice.

More so the older I get. Seems the worst preachers are “reformed” anything, who have no problem playing their cards but need to tell everyone else how they should play theirs.

... but that said: I enjoy life.

Sources claim that 30-40% of all motorcycle fatalities involve alcohol impairment. On weekend nights, that nearly doubles to 60-70%.

Even just a drink or two can significantly affect your judgement and response times. And that is the definition of riding impaired...

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from . . .
