    We went as spectators in 2014, then starting in 2015 as participants on our mighty 45. Even went out to Pismo, CA as racers. I believe it to be a great event, more fun in four days then you can have in 8 days at any of the major bike ralleys.

    It was in October for the first three years, or so, then they moved it to June to get away from hurricane season. But June brought other issues, so they decided to go back to October.

    A lot of fun as a spectator, a ton of fun as a participant. Lots of like minded people as can be found on the this Forum. Cars and bikes are all spectacular. Troglodyte show Friday night for the chopper freaks and I hear they are adding a swap meet this year. Customrama show for the cars. All good on the Jerzey shore.

    Talked at length with Joe Oz at Timonium, the MC at TROG Wildwood and he says the weather is better in Oct. and the Legionaires and Elks won't be in town so less crowded. The only reason I didn't go the first year or two was it interfered with the Jefferson swap meet. We will be there racing so see you there.

    Default Trog 2013

    After being told what fun this is, I got to go to the first one in Wildwood (in Oct. 2013) with NJ friends the Harris bros. and others to see it for a day and watch Dave (HD) and Don (Chief) race. It was a great time and I would sure recommend it. Only regret was we couldn't be there the night before and after for the street parties. (I would include a photo if I knew how to do it here.)

    I attended TROG in Oct '15 before they split into two events (East & West coast venues). What a great time and well worth attending! I'm glad they pushed the east coast event back to Oct (tourist season is over!).

    The first year the event was held in Allenhurst, way north of Wildwood. Narrow beaches no place to park or have any kind of display. Year two moved to Wildwood a much better venue. It was great in Oct. I attended the first one held in June and vowed never to return. Elks and Legionaries were nothing compared to high school children and sky high prices. Now that the event has returned to Oct I will probably attend. Most motels are requiring a three night stay, I do not care for someone other than me planning my vacation though. I am sure a good time will be had by all.

    Attended last year for the first time needless to say I'm hooked. Of course watching the race on sand is cool, but watching all that real steel rolling on the road all weekend is special. Got reservations for this year and hope to do more.
