Up or Down?

I don't know if it is due to the winter season bringing me down - or if it was too many Budweisers the other night.... but I got into a conversation, and am interested to hear your opinions:

When driving top down - do you ride with windows up, or windows down?

If you find this post ridiculous, please blame the Budweiser - not me!

Windows Down

Otherwise, the people you pass won't hear your great sound system.

Ok,I just came back from driving in top down 50 degree weather with the top down and windows up. If it's 60+ everything is down,60-50 the top is down with the windows up,50-40 the top is still down but window's are up,heather is on and the scarf & beenie are a must,40-30 top is finally put up,so are the windows and the heater is on.

Newsflash: It's not cool to ride with the top down and the windows up.

First problem is that you are drinking Budweiser. There are zillions of beers out there to drink, and you really should try to expand your horizons and you'll never drink that piss again.

Drink a good beer and you'll know exactly when to keep the windows up or roll them down. It's akin to staying at a Holiday Inn.

If i drink to much beer or wine i prefer to drive with the windows down just in case i have to

Kidding aside please don't drink and drive.

Randall - I hear ya on the beer. Believe it or not, I preach the same thing. So here you go my friend.... :

No worry on my beer horizon, cause I am the real deal. Name your beast.... Mirror pond, terminator stout, hammerhead, dead guy ale.......

Christ... whether you're into a lighter love or your digin' the chunky goodness - I've ridin' them all like that "beer pig" of a beauty - she's the 2am winner - that last gal standing at the bar - she's ready and willing - the one your chubby buddy loves....

Try some blue boar, Heine's, pyramid, "rubinators," guinness, sam adams, moose drool, drop top, mack 'n' jacks, your favorite Belgium blend, fat (I call it "flat") tire, red hook, any ESB, or perhaps your into festive drink like the Juble Ale?

You name it - I've drank it. Fact is my friend - whether it's Bud or the ol' banquet coors - the piss beer IS the best "school night" drinkin in volume that won't kill the liver. The "buzz without the hangover" brew. Anyone have my back here?!

Now that I'm off my soap box - you are right. Budweiser sukz. And I agree with DJ - keep your drinkin' at home.

"To the hotel - to the motel - to the holiday inn..... SAY WHAT?! If your b**ch starts actin up.... then you f**k her friend."

Around town commuting - top down passenger window up. On the expressway - generally top down with both windows up. Just cruising around town - top down, windows down. A configuration for every occasion

Amen baby!!! I have to show my wife this post since she thinks I'm the only one who refers to Coors light as horse piss.

With the top down, I have the windows in the up or down position depending on the speed I am traveling and air temp. At highway speeds on a cool day, windows are up. Low speeds aroung town, windows are down.

50 degrees is the magic number for me. When it's 50 I'll ride my Kawasaki and I'll drive my Boxster with the top down. I always drive with the windows down and before the recent snow storm I found the fun in driving with my wind deflector off.

Top down = windows down

At first when my girlfriend rode with me she would put her window up so as to not mess up her hair. I guess she got tired of my complaining and explaining 'cause now she ties it up and pins it down... we go topless and windowless. Never too cold for anything else in Miami but we have no hills, curves, or open spaces!
