Bladder Blues

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Ktulu, Dec 21, 2006.

  1. So before I drop off this American girl I've been seeing at the airport today, we're shopping for snacks for on the plane and she imparts upon me some valuable biking information!

    For a university study, she recorded the time delay and volume for instances of urination in individuals for a variety of liquids that may be consumed.

    Now like smart summer riders we're probably all hitting the Powerade and water. Cool 'n' all, good work [Fierce Grape Gatorade also is a top drop].
    But for a longer ride, maybe you're looking for the thrist quencher that doesn't result in you pulling over to take a slash in half an hour's time[?]

    Results:
    Over water and sports rehydration drinks Cranberry juice can add up to 1.5 hours to the time before you feel the need to use the bathroom AND reduces the volume of 'waste' expelled by up to 70%.




    Anyways, just thought some of you distance guys might find this a wee bit useful [it had to be said! :p].

  2. That's interesting... But I don't recall EVER having pulled over just for a piss.

    Some shoolas I've had on the back though.... jeez. We had to make up signals for it and everything.

  3. Shouldn't this be posted in Modifications and Projects? :LOL:

    Seriously, though, the solution is simple. Buy a 600 Hornet and you've got to stop for petrol between 180 and 220 kms anyway :LOL:
