Canyon attack!

I can't get off these boards since I found them.

SoCal has a ton of BMWs but I don't personally know many owners.
There are also many, many roads to cruise on.

No excuse about the weather etc. Let's get up early on a Sunday AM to catch the sunset and drive together.

I want 5-10 cars to start.

Please post up suggestions and raise your hand if you want to join.
If this works out, we will do it weekly!

What areas are you considering?

I've got plenty of twisty mountain roads in my own backyard [just waiting for the snow, ice & skiers to go away].

We should consider trying a new itinerary for every meet IMHO and rotating back as we feel like it.

Have you driven on the Little Tujunga Canyon Rd.?

Would love to hit the road on time to watch the sunrise and arrive somewhere to have breakfast very Sunday AM - preferably a place where they play music like in Punta del Este or Ibiza after parties.

No, I haven't.

Is that North Los Angeles?

Alternating roads, areas, etc. is a great idea not to mention that not everyone's schedule will accommodate weekly attendance. For example, I could probably only attend one, maybe two drives per month.

Adding this one to the list of suitable places: went and surveyed Glendora Mountain Road Canyon Rd. today, caught the sunset.

It's was great drive. And the peak is beautiful. See picture below.
I couldn't believe that people would leave litter and graffiti in such a majestic place.



Edit: found a couple of nice aerial videos of the curves we will carving.

That looks great!

Today I drove Mulholland Hwy and made my way to Latigo Canyon Rd, down to Malibu and then south along the coast on 1.
It was awesome!

With three areas mentioned so far, I think we have a great coverage to start.


I'd like to host our first cruise Sunday Jan 24 2016.


We can confirm and determine the time/ location based on interest.

Feel free to link to this thread from other sub-forums, social media etc. Let's go!

@SahmDan sorry bro, not sure why it's so hard to get people out.

I see the meets some guys put on and they get 50 cars. They go to a parking lot and stand around though.

Isn't actually driving these cars a better idea?

It looks like I'll have a free Saturday in 2 weeks [the 20th]...

The weather is shaping up...

Should we start planning?

No, I just play around with it wherever I drive it. As fun as the track sounds, I fear that I may get overzealous and hit something.
Whenever I get a craving to tear up a track I go to K1 speed!

I can't wait to join you guys. I have to do a cooling overhaul on the M3 I just got and get an alignment done. Hopefully I can come to the first meet
