A bit of a hijack, but has anyone here gotten in trouble for bike DUI? I'll admit I have, on many occasions, ridden my bike home from bars/friends' houses after an evening of... consumption. I think around here, though, cops would sooner spit at a bike rider than stop them for a little swerving.

Sure, I mean the other night I was dead drunk after about 10 shots and I was on my bike and going 90 in a 55 zone and then...

Although when you think about it, how can you tell a swerving drunk biker from a terrible biker?

I haven't...but in several, if not many states you can be charged, your license assessed points and the bike impounded. In other locales you can be charged with public intoxication, with the related fines and punishment.

Lets just admit that most of our bikes stolen or otherwise disappear because of something stupid we did. (My case no lock at all just some bungee cords. won't ever do that again. So much for safe small town) So lets just do what's asked and keep an eye out for the contraption as best we can. After all how would you feel if it was you.
