Shutting down those roads has everything to do with keeping emergency personnel available to work with sick people and not motorcyclists and car drivers that ride/drive over their heads.

Geting past labor Day will keep the crowds down a good bit at least that's my thought.

I wish you guys could come out to the Colorado rally and enjoy a different kind of riding, and I wish I could get back to join you guys for yours.

2 Month Countdown to Rally

Time to be preparing for XSSE / VYR 2020 Rally

September 24-25-26-27-28 (or any combination of days that suits you)
Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge in Stecoah, North Carolina

Waiting for your ARRIVAL


We should have a 2020 Rally Shirt posted in the next few days so Shirt Ordering can begin (more details on that later).

We will follow whatever CoVid-19 protocols are in place such as Social Distancing etc. and so will the staff at the Iron Horse.

Contact Iron Horse directly if you want to book a room: ironhorsenc.com or call: 828.479.3864

Whacky year so it will be a nice break to get away and do some riding in the mountains

Hope to see you there

Team XSSE / VYR

That's Great .................

yep, for sure, NO repeats of the failed attempt. 2015 i think it was. Hate when that stuff jumps out and happens.
Be it cars or semi, both a problem for us bikers.


Be great if your brother can join you for the ride down & Rally. Extend that big WELCOME to him for us.

Jeff

Thanks Jeff. He's flakey, so we'll see.

My plans are to make the journey on Thursday morning from North of Detroit. Stay with my twin in Charlotte overnight, then make the 6-hour ride into Stecoah by check-in time on Friday. Leave Monday morning.

Iron horse availability

XS11 Friends,

For those interested in attending the Annual Vintage Yamaha Rally, but without a reservation, you're in luck. The following remain available at Iron Horse Lodge:

AVAILABILITY
  • Private Rooms (5) 3 are in Lone Star, 1 Old Homestead, not sure of the last
  • Bunkhouse (2) Two bunks remain
  • RV (1)
  • Camp Sites (5) - Primitive - No 120v

Actually quite a selection of spots still available, they will go quickly. Make your reservations with IronHorse ASAP.

FYI. VYR info is published in Motorcycle Classics Magazine. I believe that's on autopilot. My copy came yesterday and I was happy to see it.

Hi Curtis

Am I the "Brian" you referenced? If so...

The border is closed. If it opens, I will not be going, sadly.

Thngs do not look so good in the good ol' USA from my perspective. The level of understanding of this new virus is still quite low. Way too much to learn, just as we did with many illnesses in the past. It seems that mask wearing and distancing is too difficult for some people. I have elderly parents. I would likely have to self isolate for two weeks upon return, and I sure don't want to get it or see someone I love get it because of me.

So, as much as I love seeing the gang and riding those roads, it will have to wait.

Enjoy!

Well Brian, we will miss seeing you but understand your position. Hopefully at some point in the near future someone can come up with some answers.
