Each year around the first weekend in May, the Quail Lodge & Golf Club hosts the Quail Motorcycle Gathering, featuring unique vintage, antique, and custom motorcycles. In the same spirit as their Quail Motorsports gathering, a car show that takes place during Monterey Car Week, the Motorcycle Gathering feels like a higher-end setting, with mostly pristine examples of classic motorcycles displayed on the golf greens. The show hosted more than 3,000 attendees throughout the day, who enjoyed over 350 bikes on display as well as a catered lunch featuring some of the local area’s best-tasting fare.
Aside from their traditional classes, the Quail had four featured classes: the 50th Anniversary of the Honda CB750, Off-Road Wonders Through the ’90s, the 100th Anniversary of the Brough Superior, and the Spirit of the Scrambler Presented by Ducati. In addition to classic and custom bikes, a handful of current motorcycles were available to view and try out, including Ducati Scrambler test rides, a variety of Harley-Davidson test rides, as well as an augmented reality display with the new LiveWire. Here we feature a few of our favorite bikes and people from the show.
