Quail Motorcycle Gathering Lists 2013 Dates
Thursday, December 27, 2012
A beautiful day in Carmel Valley brought out motorcycle enthusiasts and collectors in droves for the 2012 Quail Motorcycle Gathering. The fifth annual event will take place May 3-4.
The Carmel crew responsible for The Quail Motorcycle Gathering announced its fifth annual gathering will take place on May 3-4, 2013, at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel, California. There’s a couple of days left to get in on a special holiday promotion and save a couple of bucks on admission. Use the promotion code: holidaypromo for a $5 discount to the gathering, the offer good until Jan. 1, 2013.
The two-day affair features a spectacular ride through Carmel Valley inland to the fertile fields of central California, followed by a couple of parade laps at the renowned Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. A sumptuous dinner at the Quail Lodge, complete with special guests, rounds out the affair.
A concourse commences on day two, a showcase of immaculately restored and vintage motorcycles. Last year we got to ride alongside Dan Gurney’s “Alligator Bikes” one day, then saw them displayed on the immaculate lawns outside of the Quail Lodge the next day. The beauty of the Quail Gathering lies in the fact that not only are there plenty of historic, show-quality bikes on-hand, but most of them are kick-started to life and ridden during The Quail Ride, then polished up for presentation the next day. The 2012 Quail Motorcycle Gathering also featured Marty Dickerson’s “The Blue Bike,” a record-setting 1948 Vincent Rapide Racer, which we had the pleasure of hearing and smelling as they put a spark to the beast and fired her up.
Quickly becoming one of the must-do events in spring, the fifth annual Quail Motorcycle Gathering
will also see the re-opening of the Quail Lodge which is slated to open back up in April, just in time to host a bunch of vintage motorcycle enthusiasts. Hope to see many of you there in 2013!
