Roar to the Shore Wildwood, NJ

Just wondering if anyone will be in Wildwood, NJ for the rally on September 5 through the 8th. I have made the last two years and have all intentions of being there again this year even if I am told "no speaking" after my upcoming throat operation. (as if my silence is a possibility ever) It is a really good time and can be done for a minimum of cash outlay. Last year there were more than 80,000 bikes and they are looking to pump that number to 100,00 or more this year. As mentioned, I will be there with several other riding buddies and I would like to set up a ride for possibly Saturday afternoon if we can get more people together. Location is pretty great and the local police pretty much let the bikers police themselves. They do not even enforce the metered parking as they do on other weekend convention/rallies. Its a great way to check out what a real bike rally really is without heading to Sturgis or Daytona. It is also an easy one day ride in and out for a wide area here on the east coast. From NYC down to Washington, DC could do it as a long one day event if time dictates.

If you are interested in going leave a message here with the days you will be in Wildwood. Also if you have a suggestion for a ride destination from Wildwood mention that also. Thanks.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

I guess either no one is heading to the NJ shore or people are waiting till the end to make a decision. If there is any interest let me know for just a meetup or to set up a ride on that Saturday.

Hi Tom, things are getting tight for me, between weddings, parties, kids birthdays, house work, real work, possible travel for work for a week then again for possibly a month, I need to pass on the shore this year. Was going to go down for just a day too, which may still happen but it does not look like it is in the cards. Good luck with your throat.

I'm really going to try to make it at least Saturday into Sunday this year. I'm traveling the following week so I'll have to see how prep for that goes before deciding...

I'd have considered it Tom, but my bike still has an overheating issue....also, I couldnt handle the NJTp, lol....Id need to take 287 down to wherever, then backroads, so KC and Merc wouldnt ride with me anyway....they like the bigroads....

Besides...its too close to Catskill Thunder, and Im cuttin that shorter as it is because of my spleen....2 days instead of 4, or sumpin....

I'll try fer next year...if Im still ridin, lol....

I gotta work that weekend at the gun shop. Maybe I could plan it next year. I'd like to get out on a long ride now that I could get 250 miles on a tank of gas.

Didn't know side roads were an option, you calculate the route, and if I am actually around and not ripping the remainder of my hair out, we can do back roads, I am sure KC will have no issue with that either, unless it turns a 3 hour ride into an 8 hour ride.... keep us posted on it, I am going to try if I am around. Just for the day though.

Would either be a shortcut to 206, or 287 to 206....I gotta get my thermostat out before I even think of it....
And today, my oil drain started leaking (picked up O-rings)...I may not even make Catskill at this point....
