In USA

You can carry guns, but you are agains terrorism
You can ride without helmet but you can't filter traffic?
You can buy a racing bike, but speed limits are funny for such a country which endless straight roads.

And a lot of cruiser lot drinks and ride .

Mind you I heard that last year 572 baby's die in America because they are left in the car by their mothers with no air con or open window?
In what kind of head you making your rules, Americans?

How can be carrying guns is ok and filtering the traffic is rude?

God I am upset.
Easy there Limey! I don't think anyone is saying to drink alcohol DURING the ride, but rather, AFTER the ride, and there is NOTHING wrong with that at all, in fact, millions of people AROUND THE WORLD, do the exact same thing.
sorry if you dislike our personal freedoms.
Now I'm going to have a drink and shoot my guns

I always carry whiskey. Not just for drinking, but you never know when you might need a little alcohol to dry out your electronics.

At night while by the fire I like to sip Whiskey or Bourbon.

With breakfast I like Emergen-C. I like the little packets. It hardly weighs anything or takes up any room. They also have B vitamins which can give you a boost and may help if you were a little over indulgent the previous night.

If I could only be so lucky to blow a 0.5 after only 3 beers (THAT IS GOT TO BE SOME BACK YARD HOOTCH SHIT OR THE RACE GRADE ALCOHOL JET FULE FOR YOUR BIKE) try 0.05 after 3 beers.

Party on Wayne!

On my many biking trips over the years, I've learned that plain water is best. Doing a 12 hour, 500 mile day back from Assen, Le Mans or Magny Cours to home means you have to stay hydrated to be able to concentrate for that long. The odd cup of coffee on the way (French coffee is good and strong) helps too, but sugary drinks don't. Salt generally comes from a packet of crisps or nuts but otherwise it's in your food anyways.

Now I have my 1190 ADV I also have bought some adventure style riding gear. The jacket has a pocket for a camelback which will be a godsend for these long journeys.

P.s. Tancaker, take it easy man! They're winding you up....

I'm with Lone Rider. I don't want to get scurvy, and I want an umbrella in mine.

I'm not a regular alcohol drinker. It's water for me.

"Buttermilk", it will tighten you up when that greasy road food wants to loosen you up.

Strong coffee in the morning, usually starbucks via while camping.

Water the rest of the day. Never hit the road with a dry CamelBak.

Gin&Tonic once I make camp.

Note, at no point during this thread did I see anyone suggest drinking and riding, but I suspect drinking and posting a page or so back,...

I've read this before too. I did it extensively on hot days in Mexico with great results. I'm not one for heat either.

Water of some sort on the ride, some Chocolate milk when filling up at a Pemex. Life was good.

People who are saying they drink alcohol when they stop should stop riding bikes. Just take on a bus.
You should even drink the night you are going to ride in the morning ! alcohol don't leave the body at least 10 hours.

DON'T FUCKING DRINK AND RIDE. IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT DO IT IN Usa , YOU DON'T HAVE TO WEAR HELMET in USA ANYWAY, SO YOU CAN DIE QUICKLY AND WE WILL BE ONE IDIOT LESS IN THIS WORLD!
What a dick! You must be a riot at a party. You'd be the Lt Hauk in "Good Morning Vietanm" - the lighter side of things are never too obvious to you.

When I saw the title to this thread, I immediately thought beer, bourbon and wine. That's what I drink at the end of every day during an "adventure bike trip." I don't think anyone mentioned they drank while riding - you just applied your opinions to the topic and assumed anyone on this side of the pond is a boozed up, drugged up, gun totin', helmetless biker raping and pilaging across the land.

Maybe you should get out and see the world. Might alter some of your preconceived notions.
