That's a great video. I won't have so much as a single beer when I ride. If I ride with guys to a weekend destination I won't consider having a drink until the bike is put away for the night.
The trouble is, even a couple of beers or shots, though you may not appear buzzed, it takes away some inhibitions that keep you sharp and aware of your surroundings while riding. You can control the bike just fine but you ride stupid.
Even a mild buzz is bad on a bike. Many do it and I often wonder how.

Completely agree! Mixing the two is just asking for trouble. Even though I've developed a high tolerance over the years (high gravity beer fan) I still won't touch the stuff until done riding for the day. I want to be as sharp as possible when riding especially with all the distracted drivers on the road these days!

Bumping for additional visibility. Some great comments about the video on YouTube as well (ex. after starting the video above click "YouTube" in the lower right). I especially like this one, "I bought a motorcycle to RIDE, not to park in front of some bar!".  :169:
