What’s Going On At The Quail Motorcycle Gathering Event?
Spring has sprung, and that means it’s almost time for The Quail Motorcycle Gathering once again. This year will be the decennial, and the event will fall on Saturday, May 5th. As usual, it’s presented by Geico Motorcycles on the idyllic grounds of the Quail Lodge and Golf Club in beautiful Carmel, California. Family-friendly fun, food and entertainment set the stage for classic machines from before the war to works of rolling art by none other than the Ness family. In fact, patriarch Arlen Ness is to be named the 2018 “Legend of the Sport” with his son Cory Ness and grandson Zach Ness in attendance, all with examples of why the Ness clan enjoys such a solid reputation as custom bike builders/artists. It’s not entirely about them, though; in addition to its usual 10-category spread that includes machines from different bike-culture hubs such as the U.S., Italy and Japan as well as current competition models and antiques to name but a few. This year’s themes will be cafè racers, electric motorcycles and, of course, more fabulous machines from the Arlen Ness private collection.

The Annual Quail Motorcycle Gathering Kicks Off In May
GEICO Motorcycle celebrates the decennial of its Quail Motorcycle Gathering this year on May 5th at the beautiful Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel, California. This event is a must-see for anyone who is seriously passionate about motorcycles whether you’re into speed, custom bikes, antiques or some combination thereof. Fans of the show will likely recognize this as just one of the excellent Peninsula Hotels’ Signature Motoring Events that also includes The Quail Rally, The Quail Ride and The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering. See a pattern here? You should, ’cause these folks are all about ’vroom and zoom’ and they know how to put on a world-class motor show. Don’t believe it? Take a look at their site and get back to me. In addition to its usual fare (if you could call such machines ’usual’), the Quail Motorcycle Gathering adds three new categories this year, including one very special class.

AMA To Continue Partnership With The Quail Motorcycle Gathering
For the ninth year running, the Quail Lodge and Golf Club will host “The Quail Motorcycle Gathering” at its Carmel Valley, California resort. This relatively new bike show has quickly made a name for itself as quite possibly the largest antique bike show in the U.S., and I do mean antique with many entries breaking the century-old mark. Of course, car enthusiasts will recognize this venue as the site of “The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering” that showcases historical four-wheel vehicles, so you can expect that the hosts know a thing or two about holding top-shelf events with antique machines. In addition to all the machinery and contact with other bike-type people, attendees can look forward to a Barbecue lunch and imbibable libations from a host of local beer and wine makers. If standing around just looking at bikes all day ain’t your thing, the Quail Ride — a 100-mile course through California’s Monterey Peninsula — takes place the day before on May 5th, then Cycle World magazine will be hosting a 50-mile jaunt on the morning of the actual show. So yeah, there will be something for everyone.
