Troglodytes & Gentlemen – 2017 TROG Coverage

For one weekend in June Wildwood, NJ is transformed into a car and motorcycle enthusiest dream. Vintage motorcycles and cars from all over the world converge to race on the beach. Beach Motel parking lots become a hot bed of choppers and hot rods. The Race of Gentlemen is such a unique event that this year I even convinced my Mom to go. It’s an event for everyone, you don’t have to be part of a certain scene or be a die hard to enjoy this event.

Friday night kicked off with “The Night of the Troglodytes,” a vintage chopper show pre-party that takes over an entire hotel (Binns Bonito).

Check out some pics from the show:

I managed to catch some video of the chopper show before the sun went down. Let me remind you that the party doesn’t really kick off til the sun sets. Hit the play button below:

Saturday and Sunday is when the racing goes down on the beach. We spent the day Saturday at the races and stayed for the bonfire Saturday night.
