Gypsy Run 2008
Well, our crew was only able to make the first leg of the run this year. We rode with no-one but ourselves because of showing up at the departure point about 5 minutes late. A slipping clutch on Evan's bike prevented us from playing catch-up, but we ended up running into the majority of the MA crew as the chase truck sat waiting for a new caliper/rotor. We spent the rest of the first day hunting down clutch plates for a cm400e, which we found about 10 miles from the first campsite in Phonecia, NY. We barely spoke to anyone the first night, I was so smoked from the days hunting/riding that I wouldn't have been much of a conversationalist. I regret not being able to ride with the whole crew, but it'll happen next time. It was good to meet Josh, Bob, Paul, Ron, Jay, Todd, Joel, and a few others I'm spacing on right now.
