After our client was arrested for a second-offense drunk driving charge while riding his motorcycle, I convinced the jury that operating a two-wheel vehicle requires a finer sense of balance than operating a four-wheel automobile. Also, getting off of a motorcycle requires raising one leg up very high, which he was able to do without any difficulty or unsteadiness. Essentially, he performed a very difficult one leg stand test perfectly. When the cop testified he had him walk an imaginary line, I then asked the officer, "How wide was that imaginary line?" As he stammered trying to answer, the jury got the point. They deliberated only 15 minutes and then came back with a not guilty.
