The 2018 Quail Motorcycle Gathering. Honoring The Ness Family. New Special Classes and More.

Each year, The Quail Motorcycle Gathering draws thousands of guests to the stunning Quail Lodge & Golf Club grounds for a showcase of the world’s rarest, fastest and most beautiful motorcycles. The 10th annual show will honor the legendary Ness family, feature new marques in addition to cutting-edge Electric Motorcycles and Café Racers, to 300 historic pre- and post-war motorcycles, and offer live music and incredible food.

Legendary customizer Arlen Ness, who is credited with helping create the chopper and show bike industry from his Northern California based Arlen Ness Enterprises, along with his son Cory Ness and grandson Zach Ness, will be honored and given their own class featuring wild and famous bikes from the Ness Museum.

Exploring the dichotomy between the art of craft showcased in hand built bare bones custom bikes versus the technological revolution of the current era, a field of contemporary and classic Café Racers will be exhibited on the field alongside a new class of Electric Motorcycles.

As always, the show will take place on the pristine lawns of Quail Lodge & Golf Club. Children, families and even pets are welcome at this inclusive and relaxed event on Saturday, May 5, 2018. Pre-sale tickets are $75 and are available online at Quail Lodge Events. Attendees can save an additional $10 by using the holiday promotional code QL18HOLIDAY valid through December 31, 2017. Entry includes a gourmet lunch, parking, and gear valet service for those riding a motorcycle to the event. The Quail Motorcycle Gathering.

    xenu, i agree. aren’t the west coast elites just so priviledged to enjoy a beautful weekend viewing motorcycle as art in their picture perfect coastal environ. screw gentrifying motorcycles. i liked the old days of silicon valley before wall streeters hijacked it. when arlen’s tiny storefront was in san leandro on east 14th street. usually with a signature leafed and flaked and blown digger parked at the curbside.

    The Quail is a really fun event, the quality of the vehicles on display is amazing. Ness will bring another flavor to it which is cool.

    Xenu, you are a fool. worst use of a single word to describe a guy who’s career should have ended his first few years in.

    Look up the word, dummy.

    My apologies for the typo. I shouldn’t type on the phone.
    Nesses modify fine bikes, discarding stock parts along the way. Quail exhibitors search out lost parts to restore fine bikes to stock configuration. Opposite concepts.

    $75 a head? no thanks, to the elitist snobs.
    those pictured /2″s are sweet. but a harley chop with YAMAHA motif gas tank? yuck.
    Arlen did nice stuff when younger. stuff like 57 chevy tail fins on motorcycles is carnival stuff. i do like the Ness Jackpots. but the baggers suck.
