Just got off the bike and it's running perfect. I got the time off from work and was all set to go.

Wanted to check out Jetmechmartys riding area in West Virginia. Not in the cards this year as my live alone, 92 yr old mom has taken a turn for the worse.

I can't leave for 6 days, so I am looking forward to next year!
Wish a safe trip, fair weather for all!

It[s one of those things. XS Southeast has morphed to Vintage Yamaha and for good reason. It keeps us growing. The XS650 rallies were dwindling to nothing and we're bouncing back again.

We aren't getting younger and neither are the bikes. I wish I could join you, but I can't work it into my schedule. It's four days there and back.

Not sure, i wanted to go this year but scheduling wise I just can't make it.

If you guys are serious about getting younger people out to these events, you need to have more events where you work on the bikes prior to this one or make that part of the event. Not too many masters of XSology in the millennial generation. You want more people out there? You guys need to teach us how to fix these things and keep them running, seriously (including myself).
