Gypsy Run 2.0
September 22, 2018
What is the GYPSY RUN?
The East Coast Gypsy Run started in 2007. Inspired by the El Diablo Run a bunch of like minded east coast motorcyclists meet up on the interwebs and planned a traditional run. The Gypsy Run ran uninterrupted for ten years. The last few runs started to get a bit predictable, so we took a break.
WHAT IS A TRADITIONAL RUN?
A traditional run is riding, camping and a hell of a good party. A traditional run is geared toward the rider who feels out of place at a major rally or anywhere you find an excess of “Sons of Anarchy” patches.
WHO IS INVITED?
Everyone. As long as you have your shit together, enjoy being around like minded folks and like to ride.
WHAT TYPE OF BIKES WILL BE ON THE RUN?
We tend towards older bikes of any make. Most of the bikes on previous runs were older Harleys. and garage built choppers. (The first year the Panheads out numbered the Shovelheads!) But don’t let that stop you, Ducatis, Evos, SR650s, Baggers, Sportbikes and Triumphs (old and new). All have rolled on the Gypsy Run. The point is, as long as you can hang, you are welcome. It is the person that makes the bike cool, not the other way around.
HOW LONG IS THE RUN?
This year the run will start on Saturday morning and end on Sunday morning when you ride home. Approximately 220 Miles RT
