Expect 2-3 hours of driving with a couple stops along the way just to let everyone regroup.

Pretty sure it's rain or shine. I remember doing one in the rain back when he still had his M3. If I recall correctly, it was the night before I sold my E36. Damn that was years ago...

If I recall, a couple years ago we had rain dates (usually the week after) but I guess they were problematic because some people have to book off work for these events.

well i had my heart set on attending my first maxbimmer cruise but after driving home from work the yesterday i popped my hood to see if my supercharger was leaking oil from the rear main seal or any other issues as part of my after driving routine. thankfully it wasn't leaking a drop. Then my line of sight continued throughout the engine bay where i began to notice a shit load of belt shavings scattered around the supercharger. The belt is making contact somewhere, most likely while driving WOT or the belt debris is being caused by the belt slipping witch i really doubt. Anyways Im not going to risk my s/c belt snapping/breaking during the cruise or during my daily drives to work. ( carpooling yay! ) So I'm out of commission until I further diagnose the issue and buy a replacement s/c belt. I know, I know you're all devastated that i won't be making it but seriously its a bummer that I can't/shouldn't make it out for the sake of my chariot.... :(

have fun and drive safe, are there any more cruises this year?*sad*

Yea for the major cruises, not the midnight runs... I could be wrong, though.

See y'all tmrw night!

According to the Weather Network, it says "chance of thunder-showers". That's during the day, so hopefully if it does rain (I certainly hope not) it will clear out by the evening/night when the cruise starts.

Lol. The cars are gonna dirty dirty regardless of rain. Driving through the night = plenty of bugs, and lets not forget the brake dust ;)
IMO, the only impact of bad weather would be on the pre-meet, not so much the drive.

archrival
07-27-2012, 08:04 PM
I had to make it presentable. After my run to minden and back yesterday and the rain it was a little bad. I even had a frog hitch a ride in the edge of the brake duct. He didn't make it past the impact.

Bad weather would be detrimental to myself and my girlfriend - to myself because I'd have to listen to her complain about her hair going frizzy... then again I could always put the top up but I'm not that nice :mad:

Where did everyone go? Lost everyone when we got on the 401 just after that accident? Where can we meet up if possible!?

Murchie
07-28-2012, 04:23 AM
These cruises need to be better organized. Once we hit 401 we lost you guys. We were somewhat in the front of the pack but i just couldn't see you guys. There were other drivers too that feel the same way. We drove until pickering and then decided to call it a night. Sorry to say but this was one was a flop. And just a suggestion, heading north is probably a better option. More quiet roads and you wont hit traffic like we did on 401.

Derek
07-28-2012, 04:39 AM
401 West bound was closed so we had to make a detour to the 404. If people paid attention you would not have got lost. Just sayin....even with the rain we got was a blast :)

With that said i would also like to suggest there should also be check points/points of interest listed or well known in advance to everyone in-case people do get lost in the pack or get caught up in traffic, i also second going north or west, less traffic and better roads *th-up*

first 15 minutes of the cruise was amazing until entering the 401 entrance off the 400, lots of confusion and then the cruise basically ended *thmbsdwn* because the pack was lost and tried for good 10 minutes to find it but no luck, needs to be better organized for sure fcplm

Good to see everyone last night, its been a while!! As soon as we hit traffic, that was it. I caught up with a small group of cars, and we did our own thing. Big thanks to the owner of the LSB E46 M3 for saving the night and leading us on a good route!

wolf_e39
07-28-2012, 12:19 PM
it defently needs better organizing
it was a blast until the 401 but then everybody got lost from each other
we need to have check points next time and at least an idea of the route
me and 2 other cars didn't take the 404 and ended up turning around at morning side and going home

a bit disappointing on the organizing to be honest :(

P.S who took the pics of the cars as they left i would like to see them :) lots of fine examples ;)

The DVP/Gardner/427 run was fun.

I didn't snap many pictures. Here are a few, was messing around with a star filter, it went a little crazy on a few shots.

I thought it was a lot of fun! Those that are complaining about organization, considering the amount of cars that show up to these things (50-100+), organization is best as it could ever be! Props goes out to Maxbimmer, and Mystikal for making these events happen.*th-up*

I completely agree, with the joy of the event!!. Just that damn traffic. Sweet time and also sweet pictures :)!

07-28-2012, 08:08 PM
No doubt, thumbs up to Jay for this event. But what i'm saying is that if you take an exit at least wait for the rest or slow down while the others catch up, thats all.
Part 1 was alot more fun because we all were together and cruised as a group.

BimmerboyPH, archrival, biginstreets and whomever else that was in our small pack - glad you enjoyed yourselves. Definitely didn't want to end our night early that's for sure.

It's a bummer we got caught up in traffic and lost the front group.

I've not missed a single Maxbimmer event since my joint date. I've also never gotten separated or lost. You guys are doing something wrong.

Another great one Jay.
Thank you for taking the time to plan and organize and lead these cruises.
I was dead tired by the end so I skipped out on the maiyfield timmies.

Me and 2-3 other cars cruised back. Some good cruising for sure.
