That's a good point...but here's a question:

When a rider gets a new bike, does he or she buy the first round or do we buy it? (Hey, as the webmaster I cannot advocate drinking while riding! Sorry, but the lawyers make me add these types of disclaimers!).

One thing I'll add to this thread for Kornbread is to take the MSF class as soon as you get the new bike. It's a great way to learn the handling and braking characteristics in a controlled environment. I'm in the habit of taking the class whenever I get a new bike. It's well worth the cost and it saves you a bunch on your insurance!

Depends upon where you display your new ride if you bring it to the local bar then the crew buys.If you bring it to the local shop then you ride to get beers.
And of course no one wants anyone to over consume and drive anything but to have a beer and toast the new ride is just tradition. I personally have a two beer limit when I am on two wheels and being 250 lbs that keeps me well below the .08 in my state.

Andy while i appreciate the advice about the Safety Course, I take it every 3 years.I simply take the bike out in a parking lot and practice slow speed operations for about 2 hours.
Trekwolf I am also a big man,6ft 5inches tall and 305lbs.I have a 3 beer limit.I am also law enforcement so i really watch my P's and Q's.
