View Full Version : Maxbimmer Midnight Cruise 2012 Part 1: Friday June 22nd (GTA)

Date: Friday June 22nd
Time: 11pm meet start - cruise starts AFTER MIDNIGHT
Meeting Place: La Paloma, Woodbridge
Directions: See Friday night meet thread here (http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69352).

I want to take a second to thank everyone who came out and made the Spring Cruise as great as it was. We had 100+ cars and had an exciting day in the sun exploring Kawartha Lakes region. Now it's time for Midnight Cruise, which is very different from the daytime events.

First, as the name implies, it's at night. We drive into the early hours of Saturday morning all the while taking advantage of the lack of traffic on the streets. We do not stray as far from the urban area of Toronto as the day cruises - no, we don't need people falling asleep on long country roads or breaking down 300km from home. But in the shorter route we definitely have as much (or more) fun.

No, I will not tell you where we are going. Even if you PM me. This route is always kept secret; in fact in some events we don't even hand out route maps or directions (still deciding on this one). If you've never been before, come out and see why we've been running this event for 8 years running. It's like little else, really.

Things to bring: a full tank of gas, bottles of water, FRS radio, GPS of some sort.
Things to leave: alcohol, drugs, high sense of self-entitlement.

Here's a video BADRAT made of last year's event:

See you there.

New members are always welcome. Even if you're the type to stay quiet and to yourself you'll quickly find that almost half the group is just like you. We're a social group on the internet of course a bunch of us have no idea how to do this in person.

I don't bite though. I'm the tall guy in the little car, come say hi.

I couldn't attend the Open Season because I didn't have tires for it, and I still don't. Will pull the trigger on a set of Supersports all around but haven't done it yet.

Mystikal, can we PLEASE have a full, long, day cruise in the middle of the season?? I know I"ll make it to the Season Finale but then I'll be sad that it's over. lol

Unfortunately the Lakeshore cruise last year didn't have a good turn out so it was axxed this year.

Just do the midnight cruise and stay out all night, ends up being just as long...

Randy throws a great event mid-summer, Bimmercruise, on August 26th. Should be a great time this year.

I've thought out the route for tonight. No maps, no directions, and lots of turns. Can't wait!

Totally bummed I'm missing it. I thought about driving up for the weekend... but that's just senseless (even for me, lol) as I'm back next week anyways. Oh well, won't miss the second one!!

Enjoy guys, it's always a blast and stay til the end!

I've been on many cruises and seen my fair share of accidents.

If your tailgating me, be prepared to get brake-checked!!!

I can't stress this enough... LEAVE SPACE BETWEEN CARS... Its a cruise not a race

New to this but had my ride for a year. Definitely coming out to this event. Hopefully meet some people along the way.

But do we just pull into the parking lot n wait for the group to leave? How does it work?

#3 is my car! Holy construction dust! It was spotless the day before I swear. Downtown Brampton blows.

Last Night was an absolute blast! My first meet, met tons of very cool people and saw some really cool stuff.

You guys are animals though, thought we were getting pinched for sure. Still super fun.

Good times.

Overall fun cruise though. It was fun to do some pulls with some other E30s *th-up*

The small miracle is that it didn't damage my oil cooler and leave me on the side of the highway with no oil.

Yeah it's twisted where the tire chunk got wedged in.

What a peaceful event. The reason the speed was slightly down is that I was running on 5 cyl from shortly after leaving the parking lot. Luckily ZiMMie is a gentleman and drove to the shop mid-cruise to get me a replacement spark plug. Not sure why a 40k plug failed but luckily it was a short lived issue.

Then again maybe I should start driving slower more regularly. First event in a while with no one yelling afterwards. :P

Thanks for coming out everyone. I'm making a brand new route for Part 2 on July 27th and hope to see you there.

My buddy recorded the whole ride. But quality is CRAP. No night mode on the camcorder. There is a funny clip near the end of the cruise where some guy in a civic was rolling with us and yells at my buddy, "you Bimmer guys are crazy".

I also should have recorded the crazy crakhead at the Tim's once the cruise was over. That guy was hilarious. Who knows what drugs he was on LOL

Oh yea there is a nice clip of jay doing a few donuts.

I'll see if I can salvage some of the video and make something.
