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.
Depends if I want to ride it after!! I don't mind a few ICE COLD BEERS.. If I need to test ride he after the answer is ZERO.. Can barley keep the 10 tame sober.. Wouldn't want to chance it with drinks..
I'm not much of drinker other than with friends for have one or two watching tv or a movie. I have the "anything flat is a table for parts syndrome" so drinking isn't doesn't help with my already adbundant lack of order.
