The Quail Motorcycle Gathering, a Peninsula Hotels Signature Motoring Event, has announced three new featured classes for its 11th Anniversary celebration in Carmel Valley, California, on May 4, 2019. Among the specialty classes are 50 Years of the Honda CB750, 100th Anniversary of the Brough Superior and Off Road Wonders Through the ’90s. The event will also showcase 300 historic and classic motorcycles and incredible food along with activities for both casual observers and die-hard motorcycle fans.
2019 is a year of important anniversaries in motorcycling, including 50 years of the first production motorcycle to be called a “Superbike,” the Honda CB750, and 100 years of the iconic British Brough Superior performance bike. The 50 Years of the Honda CB750 and 100th Anniversary of the Brough Superior featured classes will celebrate these anniversaries with exhibitions on the field, alongside Off-Road Wonders Through the ’90s, an additional featured class for outstanding and historic off-road motorcycles. Each specialty class will highlight exemplary motorcycles for its respective group, including at least six world-class examples of the Honda CB750 manufactured between 1969 and 1977 as well as a wide variety of historic off-road motorcycles, including the iconic 1972 Husqvarna 400 CR and the 1989 Honda XRV650 Africa Twin Marathon.
“The Quail Motorcycle Gathering is excited to unveil the special classes for our 2019 event,” said Gordon McCall, director of motorsports for The Peninsula Signature Events. “Two of the greatest legends in motorcycle manufacturing are passing milestones this year and we’re proud to give a spotlight to these historic bikes along with these iconic off-road bikes.”
As always, the show will take place on the pristine lawns of Quail Lodge & Golf Club. Featuring a variety of activities for people of all ages to enjoy, guests can indulge in farm-to-table Mexican cuisine and goods from lifestyle vendors. Children, families and even pets are welcome at this inclusive and relaxed event.
