People around here are on serious beaters if they lost their license. Rusted out Huffy or other brand of equal crap. Just real beaters.

So, nice bike at liquor store = someone just getting a drink.

Crap bike at liquor store = someone that lost their license.

I have to earn my living from my driver's license, so when I want to "drink and ride", it's always the chain drive non motorized two wheeler for me. And if I meet someone at the pub, they can always ride on the handlebars! A couple of times, I've actually crashed while riding my bicycle. It was very dark, and I scrubbed the front wheel against a concrete curb. I landed in the grass, and to date, no injuries (except to my pride) and no DUI's!!

I have been riding to bars lately.

As others have eluded to unless you're riding a bike boom era bike with the bars turned up or an x-mart bike that looks like it's kept outside I don't think I'd be jumping to the conclusion that you're a court appointed cyclist.

I saw that item in Dutch magazine. The price over here fro that was more than pricey. I believe it was 39.

For that kind of money I'd rather use an Ortlieb bag and be done with it.

I've ridden up to the store to pick up a six-pack a few times after running out of beer. Hey, I promised the wife I'd never drink and drive

The thought of what would happen if you crashed with a glass bottle on your back makes me shudder!

LOL, The difference between a Baptist and a Methodist is the Methodist will say hello to you in the liquor store

The title should read "You ever ride bike to liquor store already drunk?"

I don't drink very often. My last trip to a beer store was about 2 years ago.

Don't forget the plastic shopping bag either held in one hand awkwardly, or attached somehow to the handlebars.

When I lived in a hilly town, the key factor in selecting a shop to buy beer and wine was altitude, pref higher than my home.

The real tell tale for lost license... DUI bars, drop bars mounted up side down. I saw a guy with dui bars peddaling, but more like swimming up a hill. The front wheel was turning left and right with every crank and of course there was a huge bottle of vodka bungied to the rack.

I have a rack I can slap on the back of my bike rather easily... I've used it to carry home plenty of things from the store, but am now thinking it'd be pretty hilarious to bungie-strap a 6 pack back there!

I may have to do that just to get the stares!
