Some of our Favorite TROG Shots, Instagram Edition

The Race of Gentlemen is a simple enough idea. Get a bunch of guys with pre-war motorcycles and hot rods and drag them 660 feet down the beach in the city of Wildwood. What the event has turned into is so much more than that!
In the Driver’s Meeting on Sunday Mel told everyone that they were now a part of the TROG family, and that’s honestly the best way I could describe the feeling amongst the racers out there. There’s no ego, no bravado, everyone is there to have fun, entertain the people on the other side of the fence, and wring every ounce of performance out of their old machines in the process. It’s intoxicating to be there in person.
I took a lot of pictures while we were out there and you’ll see the best ones of those when the show airs in the fall but in the meantime here are some of the best pics we’ve seen on Instagram from phenomenal photographers from around the globe.
Enjoy! And do everything in your power to make it to the beach next year.

Legend was here..great Moment. #TROG #kustomsurfers

More sweet rides from @theraceofgentlemen. @thearclight hitting the beach with his badass sand rail. Watching these things hit the beach was super cool. The whole experience was amazing. Great people, great racing and great atmosphere what else could you ask for. —————————————————————————#wannabephotographer #njshooterz #njphotography #njphotographer #njisntboring #just_newjersey #coastaljerseyadventures #newjerseyphotography #newjerseyisntboring #scenicnewjersey #scenicnewjerseyadventures #scenicnj #wildwood #trog #troglodyte #theraceofgentlemen #oilers #aaronkaufman #arclightfab #beachracing #fullsend #wideopenthrottle #vintagebike #sandrail #adventure #adventuretravel #beardedphotographer
