So lets meet at the Large Parking Lot in Red Bank on White Street between Route 35 and Broad Street. Date currently is September 7th and if that date doesn't work due to rain lets do September 21. Lets meet at 10, theres a Starbucks right nearby that we can grab a cup of coffee before we hit the road. Does anyone have a good idea for a drive from there? I was thinking we could drive to Sandy Hook for some photos in the morning and then we can drive some nice curvy roads before lunch. So who has some good ideas for some nice roads?

Yes, Mitch, a shoreline drive is nice in thought, but this aint Miami, and there's no sunset strip. That said, I'd rather drive a course of good roads versus trying to find decent scenery in Jersey.
Good roads are inland. Cream Ridge + Imlaystown area (Exit 11 off 195) are great windy up/down roads in the unpoliced countryside with rarely any traffic.

So here's a good set of roads to integrate: Start Exit 11, make left for Imlaystown, left then right onto Imlaystown Rd, to Davis Station road, left to Emley's Hill Rd, blah blah blah. I say this, because I remembered a great long windy road...

Millstone Road. Starts/Ends off Rt33. We can get on it at either Rt33 or from Exit 16 off 195. About 8 miles and a few stop signs.

For a long continuous high speed road, we could do 539. It's about 11 miles of super high speed road in the middle of the pines.

Re: Jersey Shore E46 meet

So September the 7th meet up at Freehold at 10am (coffee shop and address yet to be determined) and drive some nice curvy roads for a bit and have lunch (restaurant/diner yet to be determined)
Xfactor you think you could get a nice GPS route for the drive?

Yup, I can get that route whipped up and I'll update the forum on the whereabouts of the meet.

I agree. However Its more like a slow cruise over there because speed limits are 25-30. Great views and scenery though.

I wouldn't mind if you guys put the word out to other forums and other BMW drivers to get in on this too, because itd be nice to have a big drive. but we can put that up to a vote.

Re: Jersey Shore E46 meet

And if we get a huge group, I'd like to do it annually.

If we get less than 20 people, I'd like to do it maybe two or three times a year.

It could turn into a swap meet too. I have a good parking lot for a huge meet in case.
