Well, my weekend started Thursday morning with a flight out to LAX. I'm meeting the SoCal crew Friday morning in Santa Monica. In the mean time I couldn't resist taking a few pictures of the Santa Monica pier area (105 to be exact). Here are a few and one is even on topic for a BMW board, a good "sign" for the weekend.

In order:
Welcome to not so sunny southern California
Were are the baywatch babes?
A good sign for the weekend.
The California coast
Sunset from the pier
Sunset with waves
The well known Santa Monica pier sign

Actually that's the wife's X5 that Rich drove up to promote www.DubzDirect.com since she couldn't make it.

Thanks again to Laidback, James, Sobi, David & so many others for an awesome weekend!!! I hope I wasn't acting too stupid after leaving TAO since I can't even remember the place we went to after TAO. I did almost get into a fight with the cabbie when I got back to Red Rock...but that's another story, LOL!

My wife pointed out, on our way home Sunday night, that as far as we know NO ONE had an accident and only one person got a ticket. Given the hundreds of participants I think that's pretty awesome :cheers:

Given the 5 NHP SUVs waiting on a 15 mile open stretch of freeway, that is very fortunate.

From what I saw, the driving was courteous and respectful in and around the events - which isn't always the norm around car shows.

Hey Richard!

Thanks for taking a picture of my car (Mean M5)!:applause: Nice name! I will call her that for now on. I was unable to attend, but my son (in the background) and Eloy from RPI (driving) took it so I could be there in spirit. See, some of us do live vicariously through our cars! ouich

Yeah, I guess I trust Eloy a lot!lovelove. He gave me a loaner M5 in place.

Nice pics!!
:cheers:
