Cambridge News Online reports today that in last September a student motorcycle rider crashed her bike and died, after drinking at a bar with her riding instructor. The two had stopped at a bar for drinks, and she apparently drank enough to give her a blood-alcohol level of 1.5 times the legal limit.

When the two took off, the instructor managed to turn a corner safely, but she didn't, and crashed her bike.
When asked by Coroner Dr Samuel Bass, assistant deputy coroner, if it was not bad practice for driving instructors to take a pupil to a pub to drink alcohol before a lesson, Pc Breeze said the pair had not been engaged in formal instruction, and that they were friends.
Still, when you're teaching a newbie how to ride a motorcycle for the first time, any biker knows that prepping a student with alcohol is bad news.

  1. It is a little misleading to call this guy an "Instructor". It was one friend teaching another to ride. Just because you are good at riding doesn't mean you are a good teacher. When my wife learned to ride I knew exactly how to teach her, send her to the MSF course. Let the professionals do their job. No professional instructor would even think about drinking before riding.
