Motorcyclists New Favorite Alcohol is Gin!

As a motorcyclist veteran and enthusiast I try to keep up to date with new trends and news regarding the motorcycle community. Today I have witnessed and seen many¬†motorcyclists now drinking a different type of alcoholic beverage that they normally wouldn’t touch or even drink. The beverage I’m talking about is Gin, this particular drink is very popular in the UK and its starting to make a dent in the US, hell even the motorcycle community.

When stopping by my favorite bar in Kansas I was with a few motorcycle mates and they decided to order Gin instead of the usual beer, whiskey or even a shot of vodka. The choice of drink was quite surprising as many people in the US tend to see Gin as a ‘girly’ drink however let me tell you that it is nowhere near a ‘girly’ drink as it seems to pack a powerful taste that could literally get you drunk in a few minutes.

 

When ordering the Gin I remember being asked what brand I wanted to taste, the problem is that there are way too many brands and types of gin beverages to choose from. One of my friends decided to order a pink looking gin called ‘Wild Berry Gin’ this particular gin looked really tasty and I couldn’t wait to drink the whole thing down.

After the first sip of the beverage I immediately noticed a very bitter flavor which was quite similar to a raspberry or blueberry fruit and overall it tasted really great. As I tasted the rest of the drink it was clear that this gin had many complex flavors that I was unable to comprehend, the only thing I remember tasting was lots of fruit which reminded me of a sweet cool cordial taste.

After I finished drinking this particular gin with my mates I read some reviews on this particular gin and found that the makers of this particular drink was called Greenall where each of their products are distilled in England. If you want to read the Greenalls Wild berry Gin Review click here to see the exact website I viewed, the structure of the website was great as I was able to understand what botanicals were in this gin and even the background behind the Greenall company and what cocktails can be made from this drink.

Overall, my first gin drinking experience was great and it might even be a regular drink that I may order at this bar. Let me know what you guys think about drinking gin and if you have tasted this particular drink before.

Thank you for reading the post, hope you enjoyed!

Can You Drive a Motorbike On a Car License?

Due to myself being a motorcycle enthusiast I get alot of questions where people ask me “do I need a motorbike license to drive a motorbike”? The short answer is….yes unfortunately you have to.

Depending on where you live there is obviously going to be different licensing and driving restrictions, in Australia for example you cannot drive a motorbike on a car license. If you pass your  driving test you will be awarded with a car license which will can only be used when driving a car.

If you pass your motorcycle driving exam you will be awarded with a motorcycle license which can only be used to drive a motorcycle. If you intend on driving a motorcycle with a car license there are many severe penalties that may arise. Some of these penalties include; loss of license, expensive fines and possibly never being able to drive your car or motorcycle again.

In the United States the laws for motorcycle driving are very different, the DMV states that people who have a car license may drive a motorbike if that motorcycle isn’t over 125cc speed. The minimum amount of cc’s your motorcycle must be is 50cc’s. Here are more requirements that you must follow in order to drive your motorcycle on your car license in the US:

  • You must be of the appropriate driving age
  • In most states wearing a motorcycle helmet is necessary
  • Headlights must be on at all times in the night
  • Riding between 2 or more lanes are prohibited in most states
  • I recommend to buy an expensive sturdy lock for your bike

The same rules apply to trucks, buses and heavy equipment that require a license to operate. These vehicles have their own class number and you must pass the driving test for each vehicle to obtain a license to drive them. You cannot use a license from one vehicle class to drive another vehicle class, it doesn’t work and penalties can be imposed.

I myself have both a car and motorcycle license, there are certain places in the US and Australia that allow you to undertake a motorcycle and car test at the same time, as a result you end up doing two driving tests on the same day and getting two licenses.
