I must say this has been the best Sunday cruise through the woods that I've ever had. For the people who didn't know today or (Sunday Aug. 18th) was the Delaware Valley BMWCCA Covered Bridge Tour.

There were alot of motorcycles which were very clean, new and old. I saw a bunch of 2002, an M5, 330Xi, and other various bmw's. After registeration at 10am myself and my two other friends were on our way to take the wonderful scenic roads of Bucks County. All together there was 9 covered bridges. The third one was in across the Delaware River into New Jersey. I took lots of pictures and plenty of video of the bridges and some with my car next to someones barn :D The whole trip was 82 miles. We were suppose to be done and at the Boat area (tons of boats!!) by like 1 but I spent so much time taking pictures that we didn't get there till around 3pm. They were nice enough to throw some burgers on for us :bigpimp: Anyways, here are the pictures. I took roughly 90 pictures and 30 minutes of video. I recommend this trip to anyone that would like a nice laid back trip threw the woods. Love thoses twisties :thumbup:

Theses signs were most of the time between the peaks of the roofs. Most bridges I think were made back in the 1870's (don't quote me on that).

We stopped at this walk-across bridge that goes across the Delaware River, needless to say we lost the rest of our group when staying to take pictures of this "noncovered" bridge.

Here is the Marina were the tour ended. Very nice view of the water and the boats. This is where we had the picnic, showing of the cars, and raffle drawing/socializing.

GREAT PICS Justin,

Now I'm kicking myself that I spent all day working in my backyard instead of driving infront of you, teaching you a thing or two about twisties. The picture in front of the barn is awesome.

Don't worry guys I talk to Bill Foster he said that their planning to do another tour in the fall when the leaves are on the ground. Should make it easier to get more pictures. I was fighting for pictures by all the foilage. :D We took over 100 pictures between my friend John and I. I'd be glad to share them with you phil. As far as the wax its only been a month since I got it, but it hardly beads up :eek: let me know when your free. I'd like to do it on a Tues or Thurs evening. I was looking for your car Josh, its alright but you better be there next time. This guy that followed me out of the park we were picnicing in was on my a$$ the whole way out we were doing like 80 in a 15..... I love how my car handles. I think the guy might be that green 525i with the clear corners that is on this board. If that was you send a reply, nice driving :bigpimp:
