Well it may be a stretch, to idle and stall
Yet 'tis the sound of the Coyote's first call

 
An English saloon, guzzler of a kind
With room in the front as well as behind

 
I've got her covered, as she can see
And still on the loose, bearing testimony

 
Off shore in other words my name thus compounded

And the coolest of circles I can almost be found in 

 
He's no longer available, the inquiry's been submitted 
It still isnt legal though, to have him committed

 
Free rides to the first, then quits lickety split
Different social classes, gets away with it

 
When put on paper it lacks any bite
But when left alone ferocious it's quite

 
Well connected as usual are the two of us
Now give me a hand t'beat the system thus

 
Your fortunes in the balance just may hang
So in seventh heaven those feelings explained

 
 
When the eight are known you'll get credit for that
Then for what it's worth there's one more to have at

hey Rob - yeah dont know what's up with the spoiler.  seems to repeat words and add those equal signs especially after editting.  as for your answer, not the word i have in mind.  still a little more wordplay to parse.  thanks for getting this one started.

am afraid neither Shakee.  the first one is an especially good fit.  by memory, think you're not a big fan of going about finding a word from multiple definitions/descriptions.  have seperated each different avenue to the answer with comas if within the same line of the couplet otherwise each line is a different approach.  hope you'll give it another go.

think you're narrowing in on what's probably the lead clue on the first.  and with all my american jargon/idiomatic centric puzzles, have always been doubly impressed with your solves.  now finally got what i thought might give an advantage to a Brit.  still have my money on you for the second.  and thanks for the encouragement.  threw this one together under pressure trying to continue this recent resurgence and may have been a little hasty.  we'll see...

"There's no such thing as 'one, true way'; the only answers worth having are the ones you find for yourself; leave the world better than you found it. Love, freedom, and the chance to do some good -- they're the things worth living and dying for, and if you aren't willing to die for the things worth living for, you might as well turn in your membership in the human race." -- Diana Tregarde in Burning Water by Mercedes Lackey
