Next week/this weekend seems like a good time to have one. Maybe a cruise down to the drag strip or something?

Yeah, we will avoid those type roads. Some of my favorites became bumpy when that 3 week rain storm saturated the ground. But, there is still plenty to have fun with. Someone was telling me about a long, straight stretch with perfect tarmac in the same area. We will check that out, as well.

This is Sunday, by the way.

I'm not really sure, I'll just be following Clayton (assuming it doesnt rain). You should try to come though, the more the merrier.

Just got some suggestions from a guy I work with that rides sport bikes. We are going to have us some fun. New roads that I haven't driven yet, but I just checked them out on google maps...humina humina. Hope you like long drives.

I think it was 125mph. You are putting down really good numbers. What's your car though? GTR or 335i?

The drive was great. Mother Nature cooperated and held off the rain until we finished. Damp the whole time from the night before, but that just kept me honest till I had room to have some fun.

The new roads I tried turned out to be wonderful. I have a route down, now that everyone here should drive. Only one section gets bumpy, but you just go the speed limit and any rough patches can be easily avoided. The other portion of that road makes it worth it.

The end, though. That was a fantastic surprise. Perfect asphalt and mix of corners that actually link together. Best of all, hardly any residences or businesses on the road to worry about. I hit that stretch 4 times.

If anyone is interested in the route, shoot me a PM.

Going to try to do it again Saturday before I leave for Italy. I am going to miss this car.
