Reg Pridmore, winner of 1976 AMA SuperBike Championship

The 2016 Quail Motorcycle Gathering will do more than simply pay respect to classic motorcycles; this year’s event will also honor three-time AMA Superbike National Champion Reg Pridmore. If you’re in California and ride sport bikes, you’ve heard of Pridmore.

Reg Pridmore put in his time in the California club racing circuit before the AMA began accepting SuperBike as a National Championship event in 1976. Pridmore claimed the first title in the 1976 SuperBike Championship and went on to earn his place in the AMA Hall of Fame by defending that title in ’77 and ’78. Pridmore continues to spread influence in the motorcycle world with his Star Motorcycle School.
