Once a year in mid-August, the adjoining coastal towns of Monterey and Carmel, California, become ground zero for gearheads. Most people refer to it as Pebble Beach or the Pebble Beach Concours, which is a one-day event on Sunday. In reality, Monterey Car Week lasts 10 days. Primarily a car event, it is common to see motorcycles at numerous shows and around town. The Monterey Historics feature vintage racing cars, and quite often you will see a Brough Superior, a Honda CB92 or even a Crocker in the pits.

On Wednesday night a traditional kickoff party is held at the Monterey Jet Center. Gordon McCall and his wife, Molly, have been hosting The Motorworks Revival for 27 years. Gordon is an avid motorcyclist, and you can always count on some custom and/or famous motorcycles being mixed in the fold and featured at the party.
