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.

Gooch’s Garlic Run 2011

We thought it would be a nice change of pace to blog about something different today.  Each year, around 2,000 motorcycle enthusiasts gather at the big mall here in northwest New Jersey for a ride called Gooch’s Garlic Run.  It’s sponsored by the Blue Knights and benefits kids with heft medical bills.  This is the 24th year of the run, and for the first time, we were able to attend it live.

Walking down the lineup of motorcycles is impressive.  The most popular brand, you guessed it, Harley Davidson.  We did see quite a few Honda Goldwings and the occasional Triumph and BMW.  Being in the business of motorcycle mounts, we did notice quite a few GPS and satellite radios in use.  The most popular mount was the RAM Mount.

Here are a few good pictures:


We took the opportunity to take a video with our iPhone.  Quality is so-so, but it gives you an idea of the enormity of the event.
