Pop-up Gypsy Run

On Saturday September 10th. at 10am we are going on a ride. The plan is to spend most of the day rolling through the Catskills and end up somewhere for dinner. There are no plans for camping or overnight accommodations. That’s it. Just a long ride through the country with some cool people. If you want to come along meet up at my shop Saturday morning. Hope to see you there.

Gypsy Run 22 Update

To get right to the point, I’m taking this year off. I am very sorry to disappoint anyone that was looking forward to the run. This year I wanted to wipe the slate clean and start over with a real adventure.  We had some great ideas, Vermont, Maine, Pennsylvania and Upper New York state were all on the list of possibilities. My favorite for a long time was Nova Scotia. All these fantastic ideas were too costly in time or… cost. So what are we going to do?  To be honest, I don’t know.

Until we figure out what is next for the Gypsy Run, we are going to set up several runs and events throughout the riding season.  Maybe take a ride to one the many places of interest up and down the east coast. Motorcycle shops, events, restaurants, bars, music venues and maybe even a museum once in a while. Point being, there are a ton of cool things to do within a few hundred miles of where we are. 

At the same time Dusty and I will continue to produce  Cheap Thrills Motorcycle Shows and Swapmeets all over the east coast. Our first event for this year will be an Open House / Swap Meet at my shop later this month. We will announce the details this friday. 

I want to thank everyone who has come on the run, all of my friends that have pitched  in and all of our sponsors and vendors that have made the Gypsy Run what it is, whatever that is. Hope to see you soon.



Gypsy Run 2022

I would like to thank everyone that made The Gypsy Run one of the best motorcycle runs on the east coast. That is not hyperbole, ask anyone who has ridden one. To our sponsors that have enabled us to keep the event as cheap as possible, our family and friends that have helped organize and run the event and you for being cool and showing up year after year.

I was never terribly interested in making the run the biggest event, or an event at all, come to think about it. I just wanted it to be a reason to get out and ride your bike. I think we have done a decent job of it. I have met some of my favorite people in the world because of it and I have forged friendships that will last the rest of my life. When I think of all that, I feel good about what we have done. Still… if I am being totally honest, I think we can do better. The run has been on cruise control for the past few years. It is time for challenge and change.

I have a plan for an epic and completely unique trip that you will be reminiscing about long into your golden years. I am shooting for early September 2022 date. I will post all the details by April 2022 giving you six months to plan and prepare. This will be a multi day, thousand mile plus adventure. Stay tuned to our Twitter and Instagram for all the latest news. Hope to see you on the road soon.

The Gypsy Run 2019


Gypsy Run 2019

September 6 & 7 2019 ( Friday, Saturday and ride home Sunday}
Narrowsburg N.Y. Same Campsite from the last few years.
The biggest change this year is you have to buy tickets in advance. Advance tickets are $50 per person and this covers your camping for two nights. If you just want to camp one night, it’s the same cost. (We gotta pay for the campground for the whole weekend no matter how many nights you show up.) We are limiting the number of tickets and will not be selling “day of” tickets at the gate. This means your check in process will be faster and the campground won’t get overcrowded. You can purchase tickets here.
As in years past, we are going to have one “official” route to the campsite.(details and Maps to come.)  if you are doing your own thing, don’t worry, you can’t find a bad ride to the campsite. 

Camping is first-come, first-served so show up anytime after noon on Friday and grab a spot. Be prepared to share with other riders. This ain’t no motorhome party, so cars, trucks will be parked in a designated lot, but not in the camping area itself. The actual camping area is reserved for motorcyclists only. Also to keep you all entertained we will have… Ride In Bike Show | Vendors | Food Trucks  | Tire Horseshoes | Flaming Axe Throwing | Kickstart Race | Push start race | Mini Bike Drag Racing | Mini Bike TT Race | Kayak Races (Kayaks towed by motorcycles around a corse.) …and someone will get a FREE motorcycle. 

No parentheses needed my friends. Bergen County Harley Davidson will be donating a lovingly used Harley Davidson motorcycle.  Then we are going to give it away to someone at the Gypsy Run. No tix to buy. Nothing. If you come to the Gypsy Run and are over 21 years old you are eligible. I don’t know how we are going to do it yet, a name out of a hat, Quick knee-jerk decision on my part… Hang on to your tix stub!
10am Kickstands up for the Official Route through the best of the East Coast. (details and maps coming)
4-5 pm Arrive at Camp
6-10 pm Set up Camp. Eat, Drink and be Merry.
Wake up and ride around some mountains.
4-5pm The fun begins. Tire Horseshoes | Flaming Axe Throwing | Kickstart Race | Push start race | Mini Bike Drag Racing | Mini Bike TT Race | Kayak Races (Kayaks towed by motorcycles around a corse.) …and someone will get a FREE motorcycle. Who ever wins the most events wins a some extra fabulous prizes.
Saturday night we give away all the prizes, awards and a FREE motorcycle. After we put on our PJs, we will start up the night time activities. Including but not limited to; More Drinking | Show a few films | Rock show | DJ | Campfires | Typical Gypsy Run Stupidity.
