It's more than statistically proven that drinking and RIDING impairs your reactions time.

Going to Mexico and doing that is asking for trouble.

I don't imagine you are endearing yourself to very many people here.......

Repeat after me...."12 hours bottle to throttle"

12hours oh good doG. If you want to wait 12 hours feel free. If I waited 12hours I'd never ride anywhere after riding with anyone here.

Ride your own ride let others ride theirs.

endearing O Lord

funny thing is I don't drink much at all, but... if someone is crossing and we meetup. Its an open invitation, big boys are welcome to visit and give me a clue of what kind of riding or places to visit. I also have a Baja 1000 Team top caliber mechanic if you all need great work done cheap in Tijuana.

First sorry about what you and your wife had to go through. I assume the rider was drunk? You didn't say.

I've lost friends to drunk drivers so I know a bit of your pain in that reguard. Your statement implied that if I have a drink or two with dinner that everyone should wait 12 hours before riding/driving. If I have more than that I don't drive/ride till a safe time has passed. Alcohol has different effects on different people, size has a lot to do with it, so a blanket statement such as yours while being a good sound bite it has little to do with reality and I feel does more harm than good by setting up unrealistic expectations.

If you've been drinking, the only way to get to .00 is to wait at least 45 minutes per drink.
