It usually takes a few days after the run to tie up loose ends and get everything back in its proper place. I seem to always forget something! This year it was the brilliant tire patch kits that I was supposed to give out at the campsite from our friends at Progressive Suspension. They also sent a fork spring kit and a set of Classic 412 Shocks for the Big Prize winners! Thanks Guys! So what to do with 25 brilliant tire patch kits? I know. I still feel bad for selling out of shirts so quick so I will randomly add these and some cool stickers to the Gypsy Run X Shirt Post Sale. Ok so that’s that… I feel like we can do better. OK! how about this. One randomly chosen order will get, A patch kit. Two Kickstart shop shirts, and a $100 gift certificate from our friends at Biltwell. Thats better! You have till 12 Noon EST on Sunday Sept. 18 to get your order in. We will then pick the winner. Print all the orders and have everything in the mail to you post haste!
For the past few year’s I have been posting video updates. They were a fun and easy way to get everyone up to speed. I haven’t had a chance to do one this year but if you can sit through last year’s, the MAJOR points remain the same. We spent a ton on special effects, but it was worth every dime!
Longtime friend and sponsor LOWBROW Customs did this great recap for last year’s run.
Here are a few more from last year…
The other day I told you about the amazing Motostuka U Bag travel satchel stuffed to the brim with sponsor based goodness. Well I have another equally brilliant prize for you to strive for. A few years ago Dice magazine did a Biltwell Issue. When you ordered the issue you got a Limited edition Biltwell sissy bar bag as well. The Bag sold out in 32 Seconds. There is no more. They don’t plan on re-issuing it and your chance of getting one is slim to none. Till now. I have one that I am going to stuff full of stuff you want and need. I am going to give this away on Saturday nite’s awards prestention for… something. I don’t know yet, but it will be earned in the best way possible. See you this weekend!
Well is is that time of year. The inspiring, Herculean effort by our brave Olympians got me thinking about the annual gypsy run games.They have been good in the past, but I know we can do better. Ya know… for America!
Introducing the 2016 Gypsy Run Games!
- Ax throwing
- Knife throwing
- Dunlop Horseshoes
- Kayak Races ( Kayaks towed by motorcycles around a corse.)
We obviously have given this a lot of thought so it’s understandable that we have little to no rules as of today. You can sign up on Friday at the T-shirt booth and we should have all the details worked out by then.
Good Luck and Godspeed!
Saturday Night marks the return of Mike Lucena’s Gypsy Run Tattoo Shop.
He is going to work as long as he can or until he runs out of ink. We will have a sign up sheet at the T-shirt booth starting Friday.
