Classy And Classic - Quail Motorcycle Gathering Sets Dates

One of the more unique events on any motorcycle calendar must be the Quail Motorcycle Gathering which takes place in Carmel-By-The-Sea, California and we now know when it’ll take place next year.

Already entering its ninth year, this event feature an expansive selection of the finest and rarest vintage and modern motorcycles. The Peninsula Signature Events has announced May 6, 2017 as the date of The Quail Motorcycle Gathering, presented by GEICO Motorcycle.

The weekend’s activities kick off on Friday, May 5th as 100 motorcyclists weave their way throughout the Monterey Peninsula on The Quail Ride. On Saturday, May 6th, attendees will gather on the Quail Lodge lawn for the 9th Annual the Quail Motorcycle Gathering. Alongside traditional classes, this year will include a special feature on Norton Motorcycles, which is celebrating 50 Years of the Norton Commando.

The event allows riders to show off their own motorcycle classic, but the event fills up quickly. Last year roughly 400 motorcycles, scooters and bicycles filled the event field. To read the guidelines and submit an application, riders should go here.

For those who just want to attend, tickets are now on sale and discounts for purchasing before December 31, 2016. Tickets will be available online and at the gate through the day of the event.

Need a place to stay? A limited number of rooms are available at Quail Lodge and are expected to book quickly. Rooms and rates are based on availability at the time of booking and cannot be guaranteed, and a two-night minimum stay is required.
