IMHO...

If you set up a ride you are inviting others to come join you. It's your decision on who you choose to ride with or not.

A public group ride has enough unknowns and variables already. Someone that wants to ride impaired has NO place with a group, regardless of their personal views and thoughts as to how it may "enhance" their abilities.

Worse case they want to be all billy bad and act the fool, just say "never mind, sorry everyone else, but this drunk/high idiot has cancelled our ride for today", and head home.

There is always another day.

Of course i care about group safety.
So I politely tell them they are a danger to everyone on the ride. And they are not welcome to ride with us.
But they still insist on riding with the group ..because it was a ride posted on a public forum.
Then they come and stand in your face and say ...wtf are you going to do about it...

How would you guys handle this scenario.
What would be the Right thing to do.
What should I not do?
Do I need to post that stoners and drunks not welcome?

Or should I just stop posting rides because these bad people will keep doing this every time I post a ride.

Again this is just a scenario.
Don't judge me

Exclude drunks.
Some people's motor skills are enhanced by ingesting cannabis. This is due to a side effect that increases the rate of synapse firing. Normally there would be a delay.

This is why cannabis users oftentimes "space out." The synapses don't stop and the user concentrates heavily on whatever they may be thinking about as everything else becomes irrelevant. This state of mind is often described by atheletes as being "in the zone."

At least that's what I've read.

Indica use creates a “couch-lock”, I-don’t-want-to-move-a-muscle type high. Using indica is a great choice for those nights indoors watching TV, playing video games, or just chilling with close companions. The indica high numbs the body down and induces an overall sense of relaxation, which is ideal for a relaxing night’s sleep.

Sativa use produces more of a mental, cereberal high, which often results in a boost in energy and imagination. Sativa strains are perfect when working creatively in activities such as writing, painting, and brainstorming new ideas. Sativas are also a great choice for enhancing the experience at artistic events like movies and concerts.

Yes, but neither strain should be used to ride a motorcycle.
I am all about those things at home but not at high speeds where you rely on split second decisions to be made.

Motorcycle: Sober, safe, adrenaline high (if thats safe)
Home: turn on the grill, pop a top, and smoke if you like and chill

All those years of being baked out of my mind...never even heard of Sativa and Indica. Are you guys like advanced medical professional potheads these days? Doesn't anyone just smoke mexican red hair mid-ride anymore?

My thought is...if asked to leave a ride organized by someone else, the offending rider should just leave. Unless he is a paying participant. If his way of doing it is that much better, others will follow him.
