I recently had a conversation with a friend that me and JC had, he is now working at the admitting section of a tertiary hospital, he told me that 94% of the motorcycle that they admit are caused by self accident. A huge percentage of that is due to alcohol intoxication while riding.
I don’t know if it’s the testosterone filled motorcycle macho culture that’s driving riders to live the bike and booze lifestyle. One thing is for sure, it has to change. Motorcycle riding already has a lot of inherent dangers and adding alcohol into the mix is a recipe for disaster, everybody knows that but theres always a handful that ignores that.
This event is a step away from that, it’s cultivating a culture that has all the typical biker ethos, yet none of the dangers brought by alcohol. As more and more attend this kinds of events, many will realise that alcohol is not a pre-requisite to having a good time.
Oil and alcohol will never mix, but maybe caffeine and gasoline will.
