I'd much rather not drink when I work on stuff, just makes me (*myself*) careless and I may forget things that may be important. Not good. On that same bend though I have a few buddies that seem to work BETTER when they have a beer in their hands. I can't draw shit either when I'm drinking so it's not good for me to do even harder things.

BURNOUT.....

I thought so too at first, but in actual practice it didn't work for me. If it works for you that's awesome, a few of my buddies would agree with you.

I will have a few but never more than a whole 18 pack. I guess it depends on how bad I want to ride when I am done...

Yes I can work on the bike without beer, but not as long or as often.

For longer jobs I may have one during, and I almost always have one afterwards. I would also get careless if I had a few in me and the bike is something I don't want to be careless with.
