    Under Utah law, beer sold in grocery stores or from bar taps cannot exceed 3.2 percent alcohol by weight. At my body weight, that doesn't register at all.

    I've not been to Utah. In GA, the legal limit is .08. However, if a policeman smells beer or other alcohol on your breath, you can be charged without having to take a breathalyzer or other test. Its best not to tempt fate.

    I understand what you're saying, but I have diplomatic immunity in my town. And they can't charge you with smelling like alcohol - they need to draw blood or urine, or do the breathalyzer.

    If the police officer smells smoke on your breath can you be charged with arson?

    Yeah, why would he do that? And did you see that one fat hog guy? He was too fat for that sport.

    The whole hog mentality is so utterly skull farked I just can't even comment further. WhatEVER.

    In SoCal, they wouldn't end their sentence with a preposition.

    The last time I was in my local HD dealer, I had stopped in on my way home from work wearing Docs, jeans, and a pastel button down with a little pony on it. And all the land pirates looked at me like I was from another planet. It will be a cold day in hell on the 32nd of Neverary that I trade in my helmet and jackets for a bandanna and a vest. If you want to ride without safety gear, fine. But looking like one of Jack Sparrow's crew is utterly lame.

    I don't know a preposition from a preppy and my grammar is 10x better than most of the imbeciles on BF.

    Just gassed up the ST. 42 mpg+, and that's mostly highway driving @ 70-90 mph. I think if you just got in the right lane and cruised @ 65, that bike would get high 45 to 50 mpg on a long trip, that's what ST guys report.

    When I put stock mufflers back on my Sportster, it immediately returned an easy 50MPG. That's beating on it, and riding it pretty hard. Without the baffles, it gets around 45MPG. Of course, when someone at work asked me if I rode a motorcycle to save on gas, I looked at them like they were insane.

    Hey, a Prius gets 45-50 mpg.

    A Prius doesn't go 0-100 mph in 8.4 seconds however.

    depends on what you ride. I've actually looked at getting a little 250 for commuting on. They supposedly get around 75-80 mpg.

    There's a little guy at work that rides a Korean-made 250cc v-twin. He says he can get 70-100MPG. While that's all well and good, I started out on an 180cc street bike. When I went to an 800, it felt like a toy. The only way I could ride another 250 is if it was a dirt bike. But if other folks like them, that's cool.

    yeah, a 250 is pretty much a toy, but when gas is closing in on $3/gal and probably not going back, well, mpg's rank pretty high on the list of wants.

    My commute is ten miles one way, and about 14 back. Fuel economy isn't a huge concern.

    A 250 can go from 80-100+ MPH. It's a toy that can still get you killed easily if you don't respect it.

    agreed...hell, you can die on bicycle (well, falling off one or getting hit by a car or something). I've seen 57 mph on 1 inch wide tires. Trust me, I have respect for all vehicles.

    I'm sure it can. But it's doubtful that anyone used to something closer to a liter will have the patience.
