9 times out of 10, if I see an older WRX/STi on the road, it has a lame stuffed animal hanging from the rear bumper, neon colored wheels, and the requisite flat bill wearing 12 year old behind the wheel.

Yeah, you can keep that, no thanks.
hahahaha this just made my day
as for the OP you should try coming to a canibeat meat closer towards the south bay-its not nearly as often and its open to other cars as well but the subaru crowd doesnt seem to be as tool-ish

People like the OP don't want to move onto the whole "let's be brotato buddies forever" stage so quickly, or even at all. They feel internal strife over the desire to meet up with others without wanting to make small talk about things like football, beer, socket wrenches, etc. Hence the purpose of this thread.

WTF is going on here?

He's right though. Its sad. Modded Subarus are a dime a dozen nowadays. Unfortunately the trend with soobs has gone to form over function, where it used to be the other way around.

I'll keep an eye on canibeat. Doesn't look like they have anything scheduled coming up in the bay on the forum. Although the fact that they have a meet planned in conjunction with "Hellaflush" concerns me.

I honestly havent seen any subaru's around here that are aimed towards form over here in the south bay-more or less function
Also check out i-club for other meetups. Maybe your just to far up north?

just be careful is all i'm saying
Sorry to get off topic again...

Safety first! I've been in ur shoes. I used to have a KTM 950SM and an 06' R1. I been riding the same roads for over 5 years, I've seen just about everything... I know my limits and how to keep it safe. However, I can't say that for everyone else. Unfortunately riding on public roads/ backroads, you are in an uncontrollable environment which in turn means you are not fully in control. Anyhow, I take risk... If you ask me or others that I ride with, I run fast and hard, but ultimately safety dictates the speed. Prior to us departed on that cruise, I specifically put out "safe passes only, no blind turns, watch out for bikers, and not to get over confident"

Damn I miss my bikes...

I don’t see how a Subaru meet is any different from the American Legion, Loins Club, Young Republicans/Democrats or any other meeting. Thirty seconds of talking about the subject, followed by two hours of “Go Dawgs! Woof, woof, woof!”, “Sting’em jackets”, Do you think the Braves will beat xyz this weekend?”, “Do these pants make my butt look big?, and the ever popular “Hot enough for you?”.

Has anyone had similar experiences?
Thus is why I love Subaru meets.

For anyone who is interested, I have proceeded to organize a meet in the Sacramento area. Our first meet was tonight and I thought it went rather well. Not a huge turnout, but the topic of conversation was Subarus for the most part. If you are interested in coming out please check out the link.

I used to go to AWD car meets in San Diego 7-8 years ago organized by AWJunkies. They were actually pretty good. There were raffles for cool products like tires, stuff from Kartboy and one week I won a bucket of Mother's car care products. However, it was on a work night and kind of far from where I lived so I lost interest in meets and talking Subaru. I made a few friends so that was the cooler part of the whole thing.

I recently got back in touch via chat on the AWJunkies site and the ones that still lurk there are really helpful when it comes to finding what you need in San Diego. They referred me to a shop where I saved a ton of money to get my front end repainted and I hadn't been to the site for years.

I'm looking forward to meeting them in person at a meet soon.
