    A Tribute to Military Motorcycles will pay homage to the substantial role that motorcycles and the men and women who rode them played during World War I, World War II, and The Korean War – shedding light onto the historical significance of motorcycles in American history beyond sports and racing.

    This year, two racing legends will be honored during The Quail Motorcycle Gathering’s “Legend of the Sport” series. The 1969 AMA Grand National Champion Mert Lawwill and 1970 AMA Grand National Champion Gene Romero will be together for a rare appearance on stage. Lawwill won 17 National Championship races and amassed an incredible 161 AMA Grand National finishes during his 15-year racing career. He is also one of the featured riders in the 1970’s motorcycle movie classic “On Any Sunday,” where he co-starred with Steve McQueen and Malcolm Smith, of which Romero also appeared in. Romero’s career spanned 16 years, winning 12 AMA National Championship races and the 1975 Daytona 200. He was one of the first racers to attract sponsorship to the sport of motorcycling. Both Lawwill and Romero were inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1998.
