Why do you think I put a Shell 91 stop in the middle of the day? I have a 50L tank and 6 throttle bodies to feed, it's like powering a race car via straw in a Gatorade bottle.

Smart man. I think my TBs might be stuck open 24/7. Like, all 8 of them.

A Shell 91 stop eh... I suppose that means no *other* BMW group can use this cruise route, no 93 octane for dem smoking N54s.

I'm laughing a bit at the two tank thing... I still have loads of fun in my Eta and if I used two tanks of fuel, I could do the cruise close to 3 times. Last year, even with all the bombing around, I managed 8.4L/100 km.

Have fun guys!

About 90% of the non-freeway part of the route wasn't touched on last year's cruise, and at least 60% of the new cruise has never been seen in one of my events yet. This is largely due to brand new paved roads where there was only gravel before.

The new route is smooth, extremely scenic, and a nice mix of challenging and relaxing. And by relaxing I don't mean straight boring parts because there are few of those; just easier sweepers and gentle bends to calm the nerves after a few tighter sections.
Awesome work Jay - thanks for making sure we're all able to have a great time with the extra stop points and meet spots.

This is terrific - private message sent!

Fantastic run, I desperately needed to stretch the M3's legs! Absolutely awesome roads and cooperative weather - can't ask for more, funny to see so many other car clubs up in the Muskokas today.

Going to edit the pics shortly and post'em up in a separate thread. Many thanks for organizing another smooth event.

I unfortunately did not have a good experience and decided to leave shortly after the first stop.

Thats too bad, you basically missed everything about this cruise, and all the epic roads!

Thank you Jay for organizing the event, had tons of fun. The roads and scenery were amazing!

You were just on the track, so no experience on the street roads will be adequate after that.

Yeeeeah didn't really have anything to do with that.

It was the people passing in front of oncoming traffic, on hills etc that turned me away. Too dangerous for me!

Same shit happens every year, only options are to not go on the cruise at all, or to just put space between yourself and the douchenozzles.

Yeah, the uphill passing was starting to piss me off too. Putting yourself in danger is one thing, but taking someone else out because of your negligence is unacceptable.

I still had a good time though, aside from being in the group that got lost and missing most of the route
