Melbourne run - Sunday 7th April 2019

Hi JohnR
Congrats on your purchase. Hope you are enjoying the ride. I've an '06 SLK 55 and also from Melbourne.
The cruise did not eventuate as far as I know.
With that in mind, I'd be interested in a drive in the hills. Let others join in if it is to their liking. We'll want to do it soon before the Melbourne winter weather sets in.
I propose Sunday 7th April 2019 departing at 9am from the BP carpark on eastlink southbound in scoresby and heading towards the Dandenongs.
Let me know if this suits and I'll put a route together.
Regards,
Mike

Interested:-

Not sure if the following are looking at going?

@JohnR , @MCD,

Great, go for it.

Might be good if you both make your first 15 posts so people can send you private messages. Just quickly send a bunch of welcomes to new member posts.

Now youíve got a time and place to start from, can I suggest you donít change anything.

I have copied the event on the facebook group. Hoping for more than 1 car at this stage.
https://www.facebook.com/events/659695364482569/


Sorry, the link is for the "Melbourne Mercedes R170/R171/R172 Roadsters" group on Facebook. I believe it is a closed group so you may have to be in the group to see the invitation.

Congrats to our brothers and sisters from the Victorian arm of the Forum, great to read that youíve got a group together for a run. Youíve got some fantastic areas to explore in and around Melbourne and I look forward to reading all about it. Donít forget, if there are no photos posted, it didnít happen 😁. Good luck from the Queensland SLKís of SEQ.
