Motorgen GMR Cruise February 20th!

The next cruise will be on February 20th and based on feedback from our last event I'm changing some things around. I'm moving the meeting point closer to the actual run (to keep everyone together better) and I'm also making the run shorter. This one is only about 43 miles so it won't be such a long day. Thanks again to everyone for showing up in January though - it was amazing to see 70-80 awesome cars of all different makes and models all cruising together!

The meet point for this cruise will be at a Kohl's in Upland with a very large parking lot. The address for Kohl's is:

1923 N Campus Ave
Upland, CA 91784

This puts us only about 5 miles or so from the beginning of the run. As I mentioned above, the total distance for the entire cruise is 43.3 miles. It should last about an hour and a half total. Once we finish the run the meeting point will be at a restaurant called La Tolteca (EXCELLENT Mexican food with a large parking lot and plenty of room for all of us inside unlike the last time at SuperMex). The restaurant is less than 5 miles from the end of the run, so again it should be a lot easier to keep together. The address for La Tolteca is:

429 N Azusa Ave
Azusa, CA 91702

I am going to shoot for a meet time at the Kohl's in Upland at 2:45p.m. We will leave the lot at 3:30p.m. I checked and the sun is due to set at 5:40p.m. on the 20th so we should have plenty of time to get off the mountain before it gets dark. With any luck, we should arrive for dinner between 5 and 5:30p.m.

Here is the route we are taking.
I have gone through and cleaned it up by hand (don't trust google maps completely) and it should be simple. I will have directions for everyone at the Kohl's and will hand them out before we leave. The drive is a lot of fun and the views are pretty incredible.

For anyone that wants to meet down in Orange County and caravan to Upland, I'm going to post up a time and location shortly.

If we have as many cars as last time, we'll probably try to break up into groups of 20-25 cars (we could break everyone up into groups of "fast," "normal," and "just out to enjoy the view" speeds).

For anyone that was at the last cruise, here is the video and sets of pictures here, here, and here.

Original thread is here. See everyone on the 20th!

Very nice Sean. We'll see about making this one. The start time is a little late for me but I'll see what I can do.

Sorry about the last one Camaro people. I never expected that many people and with the 15 closed it screwed things up. This one will be better!

Yup. But this route we turn right before we get to the restaurant we went to up there.

Ok guys. What do you guys think of having Lunch at Legends Burgers before we take a cruise? Legends Burgers is only 2 miles away. We can meet at Legends Burgers at around 12pm and hang out and then leave to go towards Kohls like around 2pm. Then we cruise!!! :updown:

Anyone up for it?

Here is the address of the Legends Burgers and then a map. The Kohls is the Pin in Red!

Legends Burgers
8775 Baseline Rd.
Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730

That is correct. I believe they start at 5pm if I remember correctly.

Superbowl Bump! I love the Saints, but my official prediction is that the Colts win tomorrow. I'm also keeping a close eye on weather. My friend and I are going to run the route next weekend to make sure we're okay. See you all on the 20th.

Also, for anyone that wants to go on another PCH run my buddy is throwing a non model specific (just like ours) run on March 7th. Info for that is here if anyone is interested.

Finally, for all you local boys feel free to register on the board and post up other stuff going on. I'm always looking for other events to go to. I also love reading people's build ups, so feel free to post those as well

I will be there or be square. As long as we have good weather, I don't think I want to put chains on my Camaro

GMR has always been my backyard stomping grounds...i'll try and make this, but not sure when ill be leaving that night for a speedventure.com event at big willow on sunday. Used to run up to burro canyon shooting for a few hours with my rifles, and then head down E. Fork road to the end of GMR....great lil run, but watch out for dirt and rocks for those of you trying to run it fast, its not always best kept roads up there.
