After a one and a half hour ride from the San Francisco Bay Area to Carmel, we arrived at the Quail Resort, and by the look of things I knew that this is going to be a unique motorcycle event.
The event was set up on an immaculately manicured golf course in an amazingly beautiful setup, a combination of motorcycles, lounge areas with comfortable outdoor furniture, eating areas with shaded tables, and a sound stage.
It is not very often that you will hear me describe a motorcycle event as "beautiful" or "immaculate", but it is true, I never saw a motorcycle event so organized, so clean. These bikes looked like they just came out of the assembly line...and some of them were 50 years old.
The Quail Motorcycle Gathering is not your typical motorcycle event, to start with, I was the only biker there (really). With a ticket price of $65 a person which included a nice BBQ lunch, you could not see a real biker (leather jacket, bugs in his teeth, boots, etc) for miles.
The crowd was all "heavy wallet" people (well the word is "rich"), nice people, friendly people, but not bikers.
NeverTheLess, I highly recommend anyone to attend this event at least once, it is a unique event that is unlike any event I attended...and I have been to hundreds of motorcycle events.
