Postponing to 4/16 bc R-compound and rain simply don't mix, pushing start time to 10:30 as well for a quick cruise + lunch.

We plan to meet @ 10:30, take the Bear Mountain Alp Pass followed by snakehill road, dannytown road, tower road, etc. If timing allows, we'll hop over the hudson rand go up Storm King highway before winding down 7 lake drive for lunch in the area. The plan is fluid so be sure to check back here before heading out.

Quick update, so we are going to meet at the restaurant next go the Mobil station for a quick bite @ 12:00pm, NOT 10:30. Anyone do not want to bother with lunch can ping me as to where to meet up after, I'm guessing we will start driving around 1:00pm.

Sure thing. The weather was just about perfect, I'm not gonna lie but the M5 was able to keep up with the pesky Porsche all day long since he was stuck in break in mileage and couldn't go past 5000 rpm! Lol...

I had never seen a production car come with a fire extinguisher from the factory, and the Michelin pilot cup 2 tires (245/295) on that thing was unreal, same goes for the 380mm rotors all around (not sure why such big rears)...

What a blast the S62 felt silky smooth all the way up to redline and popping off some 2nd to 3rs shifts and beyond. We finished the day with toasting at a nice outdoors spot while car spotting and talking smack, good times all around.
