Quail Motorcycle Gathering Announces Featured Classes For 2024

Carmel, Calif. – The 14th annual The Quail Motorcycle Gathering returns to Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel, California, on Saturday, May 4. This year’s event will celebrate the past, present and future of motorcycling with more than 300 vintage and modern bikes, as well as food and beverages in a family-friendly environment.

Four featured classes will be celebrated at the venerated two-wheel gathering: the 25th Anniversary of Suzuki Hayabusa, the 30th Anniversary of the Ducati 916, the 100th Anniversary of the American Motorcyclist Association and Vespa, highlighting multiple decades from the most recognized Italian scooter brand.

High-performance motorcycles take center stage in the Suzuki Hayabusa and Ducati 916 classes. The Hayabusa is among the most notorious sports motorcycles ever produced and more than 300,000 of them have been sold. It instantly gained fame as the world’s fastest production bike with a top speed of over 150 miles per hour.

The iconic Ducati 916 is considered one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever crafted for its revolutionary design and outstanding technical features. Ducati produced the 916 from 1994 to 1998 as a fully-faired sport bike, and its unique design inspired future Ducatis, including the 996 and 998.

Vespa scooters were crafted to be a practical means of travel but quickly became famous for their iconic design and distinct features. While still used as an everyday mode of transport in many high-populated countries around the world, the Vespa brand also serves as a cultural icon to symbolize the Italian way of life, as it blends classic Italian styling and innovative mechanics.

The Quail Motorcycle Gathering is also proud to celebrate the 100th anniversary of The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), a non-profit organization made up of over 200,000 motorcyclists and enthusiasts. The AMA works to organize events and campaigns in support of motorcyclists’ legal rights, while educating and empowering riders to fight for their own rights.

“With so many significant anniversaries and celebrations in the motorcycle world this year, we are excited to host The Quail Motorcycle Gathering for the 14th time,” said Kai Lermen, Managing Director of Quail Lodge & Golf Club. “We are proud to celebrate some of the most famous bikes ever produced, including the Ducati 916 and Suzuki Hayabusa, as well as the beloved Vespa brand. We hope to make the 2024 The Quail Motorcycle Gathering the best one yet.”

The event will also feature more than 10 traditional classes, including American, British, Italian, Other European, Japanese, Competition On Road, Competition Off Road, Antique, Custom/Modified, Choppers and Extraordinary Bicycles and Scooters. Entries for motorcycles, private collections and motorcycle clubs are now being accepted here.

The show will take place on the pristine lawns of Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel, California. Featuring a variety of activities for people of all ages, guests can indulge in a diverse menu from food trucks and motorcycle lifestyle vendors, as well as a variety of activities. Children, families and even pets are welcome.

The Quail Motorcycle Gathering kicks off with the Quail Ride on Friday, May 3. Departing from Quail Lodge, participants enjoy a 100-mile journey through the backroads of the renowned Monterey Peninsula, including parade laps around WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, a midday lunch and evening dinner. Vintage and modern motorcycles are welcome; applications for participants can be submitted here.
