    Hi folks! I just purchased a 2017 Shelby GT350 and it'll arrive in a week so so. I'd love to join if there are any Bay Area meet ups or cruises!

    I got a PM from another member in the bay area, last night who's interested in meeting up cruising. So it sounds like you would make 3 so far!

    We started a thread here before for meet ups. Its hard to do meet ups these days because of the stupid sideshows that has been happening. CHP and Local PD have been popping hoods and giving tickets left and right. If you guys do a meet up make it a private meet and limit the cars. They just had a meet in Redwood city and all got blocked in. Couple cars got towed and alot of tickets given out. Just a heads up.

    Wow what BS! I think more of a quick meet while we grab a coffee and then a cruise would be good.

    Good point. And being so close to the new year when they had a push to crack down i could see them pulling some BS like that. I'm stock, so wouldn't have to worry, but don't want to be hassled for hanging. Super lame.

    Sideshow BS is really lame, and it sucks they are taking it out good people when they are not involved in any way with that shit.

    Agreed. A few people should be able to fly under the radar for the most part.

    I live in Redwood City and did not hear about this. Interesting. Tons of A-holes out there these days, ruin it for the rest of us.

    It was a trend at one point where car guys would try to host a meet at dennys or a mall parking lot etc and its great but when the stupid ricer or some idiot starts revving and burnouts. It ruins it. Now couple of my car buddies would get a quick bite at any restaurant, security automatically calls PD. So were at this point on no point in meeting in big groups better to ride solo or keep the numbers low.

    We went to go check it out, It was on IG. Meet at the spot and cruise after. But before we even pulled in couple car guys flagged us to not go so we passed by most of the cars had their hoods up and lots of motorcycle cops waiting to pull other cars. Thank god because i was on slicks and skinnies. and my damn exhaust is too loud lol

    Congratulations on your Shelby! I would like to meet other Bay Area owners too but also not interested in being harassed. Assuming a group of reasonably responsible people it’s hard to believe cops don’t have better things to do. That said I have seen mixed make cruises in my area (South San Francisco) without any shadowing from law enforcement. Must really depend on location.

    Yeah I am with you on that one. I think if we have a group of <10 from here, we can just meet up and cruise somewhere. Skyline/hwy 9 might be fun.
