Jus' sayin'.

Yeah Paul, those West Coasters get all blinded by the greenery, rendering the SoCal vibe powerless.

T o keep with the theme of the thread, I'll probably be on the shovel.

I can't believe all you guys want to go on the run! I am blown away. Thank you. I am gonna buy everyone a beer!
You can go to the gypsy run site (http://www.gypsyrun.com) and check out the latest. Fritz and I are working on the maps as we speak and I am tying up last minute details. I don't want to get anyones expectations up but... This year is going to KICK ASS! (I have some surprises lined up!) Thanks again, can't wait to meet you all.

Adding any "class" to this crew will be hard to do! I'm stoked they'll even let our kind show up.

I'm looking forward to this like crazy. It's our one big trip this year and we'll be hitting Trent's Ground Zero event on the way home.

Thanks to Walt and Fritz and everyone else who is putting this thing on. See you bastards soon.

Yeah man I pull that card all the time she doesn't go for it.. EDR, Gypsy Run, Biltwell Bash, all awesome networking trips, drinking lots of beer and sleeping in the dirt is a good way to build close business relationships.. A little too close watch out Wes White may try and spoon you in the middle of the night .. Haha I just want to go out for a little riding and camping

The Gypsy Run website is a textbook example of how to host and promote a world-class grassroots chopper event. It's got it all: sponsor's links, blog feed, great schedule/maps, accommodation updates, etc. Awesome job, Walt. I wish I was joining Billdozer and the crew for this one, but I elected to stay in SoCal and hold down the fort months ago, and I've gotta stick to the plan. To everyone within a day's ride of the Gypsy Run jump-off point: you've got ZERO excuse for missing this one! It's going to be awesome.

Good luck and have fun, WG.

I hope everyone has a blast on the run! I'm pretty bummed not to be able to make it due to health issues. Sorry to all that expected my ugly mug on the ride.

Pancreas and gallbladder issues resulting in the removal of the latter. Bouncing around on my bike sounded like fun until my insides were yanked out.

Hey All,
Just wanted to wish the Gypsy Runners the best of luck!! My wife and I started out to meet the group in VT but she ended up going down in Canaan, Ct. She's an experienced rider and she's ok, thank god but had to swerve to avoid a car coming into her lane (tight corner) and her ass end slid out. Thankfully she put it down quick enough to avoid highsiding but she and her bike are a little banged up! The weather is really shitty out there and getting worse! So to everybody running the GR, Be Safe and watch out for those fucking cages!! JKJ

Just got home from the Gypsy Run, didn't really get to "run" it this year as we had a very unlucky weekend but I was able to ride up and meet the guys in catskill on saturday with my wife coming out later in the evening to hang out and drink a few beers. Gotta say we had a blast!! Great group of guys, great bikes and just a good time!! Hopefully next year we'll have better luck and will actually be able to "run" it!!

The #1 sweet talking move of the year has to go out to Walter for getting all of us indoors for the night and providing food and drink for everyone during the massive east coast rain storm. Once again the problems a minimum and fun and good times a maximum!! I could go on for hours with stories. This trip for me, is the highlight of each summer. I will definitely be back again.
