Hi Dirk! Not many of us SLK55 owners here. You wouldn't happen to have a brother called Ron would you?

Depends what you like. A summer drive down West coast highway / west coast drive... in fact you can begin all the way down in Fremantle, take the coast all the way along until you hit Hillarys. And then keep going!

Another popular trip is out to York for the day

One of the most well known twisting country roads in perth is Mundaring Weir Road from Kalamunda out to Mundaring.

I also enjoy a climb up Brookton Highway .. some nice restaurants up there to give you an excuse to make the drive.

Sadly I'm not around Perth for much longer, I'll be finding myself in a land where the drives are not at all fun.

Margs is lovely. I did that trip in my SLK230 before I had the AMG.

I am off to Qingdao, China. Left hand drive so taking the 55 is unreasonable as I don't want to convert. Have it for sale now... and secretly hoping it doesn't sell.

Where have you lived?

G'day all :'), just recently joined the club.

Wouldn't mind meeting up and going for a cruise if anyone else is interested!

until one responds, do a member search under community/quick links
specify Perth

and if they updated their profile to reflect "Perth', you will get a list of members

select 'last time on' to see when they were on last

you have 4 posts, get to 15 posts so you can private message the members in addition to being able to edit your own posts

If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable or to ‘edit’, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator.

Hiya Folks,

Perry here in Perth. Recently purchased back into SLK with a mint SLK 55 AMG. We do many rides with various clubs and just free-styling. The best group rides are with the MB Club of WA and they are very active.

Cheers

Perry
