Asked one of the police officers here at work. He says any operation of a vehicle (boat, mc, 4whlr,etc...) while intoxicated can get you a DUI here in New Mexico.

In California it doesn't make a difference if you are driving on or off road or on the water, the DUI(.04) and DWI(.08) laws are the same.

Since many Federal highway funds are usually tied to these types of laws, I would guess that Texas laws are similar.

I don't know about off road vehicles, but if you are on a boat in Texas, watch out!! They will ticket you faster than a Rattlesnake shake!

I imagine it would also depend on were you ride. We have a lot of get togethers at Marshall Creek were we drink beer(can, no glass) and put some meat on the grill. Never actually rode my bike drinking a beer or had a cooler on my bike with beer in it. :)
