The world’s premier motorcycle lifestyle event will feature three-anniversary classes, a specialty class of four-wheeled machines, a selection of food and beverage offerings, bike and gear demonstrations and a brand-new customization award presented in honor of the late Arlen Ness
Carmel, Calif. (February 24, 2022) –The Quail Motorcycle Gathering will return to Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel, California, on Saturday, May 14, 2022. The 12th annual event will present five featured classes, food and beverage offerings, product demonstrations from leading manufacturers and hands-on activities for all ages to enjoy. This year’s featured classes include the Harley-Davidson XR-750, Two-Stroke “Braaaps,” mini bikes | BIG FUN and the BMW /5 Series. Additionally, one brand-new non-motorcycle class featuring hot rods and classic cars has joined this year’s line-up.
The iconic Harley-Davidson XR-750 was the most dominant production race bike ever built and was raced by greats such as Mert Lawwill, Cal Rayborn and Jay Springsteen. It was made even more popular by world-renowned daredevil Evil Knievel.
Two-Stroke motorcycles, both on and off-road will help to add a bit of nostalgia for showgoers. The Two-Stroke “Braaaps” display will offer guests a swath of pre-mixed motorcycle history from the 1960’s and ‘70s into the early ‘80s. Motocross bikes like the Yamaha YZ490 and the Honda CR500 will be alongside their road going counterparts like the Yamaha RD350 and even MotoGP Two-Stroke 500cc race bikes of the era.
Widely adored by a strong following of enthusiasts and customizers, the BMW /5 series of motorcycles were the first made entirely in Berlin from 1970 to 1973 and featured electric starting and telescopic forks.
New this year, The Quail Motorcycle Gathering welcomes custom bike builder and 2022 Legend of the Sport, Roland Sands, who will present the Arlen Ness Memorial Award to a custom motorcycle builder in honor of the late Ness.
“The Peninsula Signature Events team is thrilled for the return of The Quail Motorcycle Gatheringfeaturing one of the finest and rarest vintage and modern motorcycle collections in the world,” said Kai Lermen, General Manager of Quail Lodge & Golf Club. “Additionally, our 12th annual celebration introduces an entirely new class of hot rods and classic cars to appeal to a more diverse crowd of motoring enthusiasts offering something for everyone.
