Question Booze Cruise?
Here's a topic I always find interesting...

How do you feel about booze cruises?
Do you occasionally go on one, never drink and ride, or find yourself drinking most of the time you ride?

How drunk?
Completely sober, only a buzz, feeling good, or hammered drunk?

How fast?
Slow speed, moderate, fast, or full speed?

Always interested in this because most everybody agrees drinking and driving a highway vehicle is wrong. But many don't feel the same about OHV's. It seems like drinking beer and riding quads or boating just go hand in hand.

I will occasionally have a few drinks then go for a booze cruise. I only do it at a light buzz level and definitely don't go fast. It's fun to have a group of buddies going on a slow speed parade around as long as nobody is too drunk or getting out of control. We always have more people than vehicles so the ones that are too drunk or out of control can simply ride and still enjoy the time.

This isn't a lecture thread. If you don't agree with drinking and riding you are free to state your opinion, but don't attack other member's if they don't have a problem drinking and riding.

never operate a motor vehicle after drinking personally.

some of my buddies ride after a beer or two. will go for a day ride, stop for lunch and have a beer, then continue on. never drunk, or buzzed.

then theres the ones who get smashed and go riding lol. usually hear about those ones in the news unfortunately.

Yeah I agree with you there. When we do drink and cruise, we always make sure it's at a pretty leisurely pace, and nobody driving is anywhere passed buzzed.
