Photo shoot at the water front of Lake Champlain, VT [LOTS of pics!]

Well, the beast is officially in "summer mode" (or "not winter mode?"). Took off the ski rack, mud flaps and put my 9.5" OEM rims with Direzza Star Spec 275's on. To celebrate, I took her out for a nice drive on some winding country roads. (there are some fantastic roads in Vermont!)

At the end of the drive, I made my way over to Lake Champlain. After a long dirt road I found a boat ramp and some gorgeous scenery.

Here's the pics:

























Thanks for looking

Awesome pics. you sure did do a great job cleaning your beast off (i saw the skiing pics that you posted). Just wondering if you have been to woodstock, VT. I took my old 325 there last summer, and there are some awesome driving roads with awesome curves and nice views. hoping to take the m3 up there this summer.

Actually its not as clean as you think - It rained yesterday and its got a whole bunch of rain/dirt spots everywhere, brake dust on wheels... Silver hides dirt well, though I've never been to Woodstock, where in VT is that? My favorite roads that I've EVER driven on are rt. 17 by the "Appalachian Gap." If your ever in the area you should definitely check it out!

Thanks, I'm running Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Spec's. 275/35-18 all around, I LOVE them. Tons of grip, good in the rain. Not to mention it looks mean filling up those front fenders

Honestly, im not sure exactly where it is lol. i know its somewhere in central VT, but when i went there, i was with my family, and i just followed my dad up. btw, thanks for the road recommendation. i looked it up for some pics and it looks fantastic.
