As a 30 year pot smoker I rode high for a little over 25 years. (15-40+) I never did drink and I would hate to even think of what coulda happened to me if I had.

Although I used to get jacked up and frisked constantly, I always passed every sobriety check I was ever put through. Usually the cops were dissapointed that I was a non drinker and it never dawned on them I mighta smoked I guess. they were too busy accusing me of being in a gang (was never in a club). Back in those pre helmet days, riding my FLH with long hair and tats bought me nothin but trouble, still I never got popped fo rbein high cuz I never carried and always passed the sobriety checks.

These days, thanks to MTV and discovery channel I rarely get anything but smiles from cops. Although I did get popped for loud pipes last month in west hollywood due to a major crackdown. Funny it took 5 sherrifs to pull me over and check my paperwork. lol Seems like they coulda been more usefull doin somethin else but apparently they were afraid of me so they surrounded me.

Now that I been clean and sober almost a year (aug 20th) not only is riding more enjoyable (less paranoia) but I had all those sill cops rollin in the street laughin and we all drove away a little bit happier. What's that sh!t? I get jacked up by five cops and ticketed and we all drive away happy? That's just not eht me I am used to ;)

So I don't think warnin people about the consequences of drivin drunk and loaded is gonna mean squat to an addict. On the other hand, it is my experience that no matter how much pain my past is/was fulla and how many resentments I use to wear like a giant flag of anarchy, my life since I got clean is much less painfull.

The best part of drivin sober for me is that cops don't make my heart race. I don't have to plan my trips around how to get high. I actually go out more often cuz I don't have to plan aroudn gettin high and dealin with my addictions were just plain inconvenient.

I admit my first 6 months of sobriety were not the happiest moments of my life and I can come up with a hell of a lot of great experiences which went down while I was high but now.... I don't HAVE TO get high. I have a choice now. I ain't workin fo rsome drug dealer. I am workin for myself.

Best of all, this year, my 10 year old son came out to visit me and we rode and rode and rode together for the first time. The tv never got turned on and I never had to feel guilty bout ridin with my kid while loaded or put off his right to ride with me cuz I was loaded.

So I aint gonna moralise or warn of consequences but man, my life is sure a lot better and so are my rides. Besides now I can sink all that drug money into my ride and gas money ;)

Pain is a given but suffering is optional!

There is a differnce between pleasure and happyness!

Ride free!

Hi All!

This is my first post here and I had to say...I am teaching a friend to ride and I told him that the most important thing to remember is to put his feet down when he stops at a light.

He thinks I am kidding!!

I am allergic to alcohol, if I drink, I break out in cocain!LOL.. I can remember being so trashed that i had to steer the bike home, 23 miles because I couldn't go fast enough to lean into a curve...pretty scary stuff! I used to ride my shovel down to the hood and cop crack , looking back I see that as so flirting with death and not giving a dam if I lived or died, It was the only riiding I did.

I have 4+ years clean. I have been blessed with kids that so far have NOT followed in y footsteps. I am a single father. Their mom still drinks and I watch how that affects the critters. I owe the kids lots of amends for having neglected them for so many years. I give them love and teach them , by example , that they can have fun and still be with their peers without indulging!
Life is Good!



i personally am an ACOA--i do not know the inner workings of your family--but i will tell you my dad was very abusive in alot of ways--and it took him until january of 2002 to actually apologize to me for it--it is something that i needed and am grateful for

i also do not know the ages of your kids--and i KNOW without a doubt i accepted behaviors in my marriage that i shouldn't have accepted because i was never taught about boundries

now that you are sober you need to be the cog in the wheel and make sure that your kids understand boundries so that they can live happy and fulfilling lives

may the wind be with you!!!!!
and congrats on being sober
