Reasons To Attend The 2016 Quail Motorcycle Gathering

New Motorcycles, Products, Customs and Classics to be Unveiled at The Quail

New motorcycles from Kawasaki, Energica, and Indian Motorcycles will be unveiled at The Quail Motorcycle Gathering this Saturday, May 14, 2016 at Quail Lodge & Golf Club. In addition to these three motorcycles, various other sponsors will be launching new products and services at the event.

“To have brand new motorcycles and products unveiled at our event is just amazing,” said Gordon McCall, Director of Motorsports at The Quail. “Spectators can get an up-close look at some of the oldest and rarest motorcycles in existence and then walk across the grass to lay their eyes on the newest motorcycles that haven’t yet hit the market. This contrast and the diversity of machines on display is what makes this event so special.”
