This is not my usual recap – that will have to wait until I get back home and have time to go through all of Nathan’s photos – but for now I just wanted to share the winning bikes from the 10th Annual Quail Motorcycle Gathering. As always, the show was wonderful and I hope those of you that were able to attend had as good of a time as I did! There were over 350 bikes, 3,000 attendees, and a surprising amount of dogs! In total, 29 awards were given out – let’s see what bikes earned them!
