Gooch’s Garlic Run 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — mountguys @ 1:04 pm

We attend this event each year.  This is the 25th annual Gooch’s Garlic Run. Roughly 2000 motorcyclists from all over attend the event.  For the first 23 years they would ride to Little Italy in NYC but a few neighbors complained and the city banned them.  So now they keep it within New Jersey with a ride to Ferry Street in Newark where they are quite accommodating.  We like looking at the variety of bikes and of course, all of our mounts that can be found on many.  The most popular mounts continue to RAM and the most popular bike by far is a Harley.

The proceeds of the event go to needy children in New Jersey.  You can read about it here.

Mounting a Golf GPS or iPhone on a Sun Mountain Golf Cart

Attaching your electronic device to a Sun Mountain Golf Cart can be an interesting exercise because of the unique configuration of the cart.  A few years ago we stumbled upon a neat trick.  Most Sun Mountain carts have an umbrella screw hole.  Sun Mountain has a lot of accessories for their carts including an umbrella that has a screw at the bottom of it versus the typical handle.  That screw is actually the same one that is found on many tripods.

Off to the MountGuys Labs we went in search of a solution.  We came up with some nice mounts that utilize the 1/4″ – 20 thread standard screw attachment.  Add a custom RAM cradle and you have a well built solution that comes with a manufacturer lifetime warranty.

As always, we offer some pictures and links of some examples.
