Hopefully we need not remind you not to ever, ever drive your bike if you're not sober! That is extremely dangerous and not allowed as a condition of your rental!! THAT SAID... our Free-Wheeling Rental System gives you the option to have a drink and still be able to take the time to be sober for the return journey.
