2018 Vintage Yamaha Rally


Been Around the Block
The 2018 Vintage Yamaha Rally will be held Sep 28 to Oct 1, 2018. If it's 25 or more years old and motivates by Yamaha power, this is your rally. We want to see it! The setting is fantastic and you need to be there. Hang out, kick tires, ride, or wrench. It's a great way to spend a weekend with like minded enthusiasts. We have a new dedicated website. Please stop in and check it out. Visit our sponsors.


We're making it bigger and better every year, so bring your cafe racer, your chopper, your bobber, stocker, or tired old barn find. I'm posting now, because space is going fast. The entire resort is reserved for our event until March 15. We're working to sell it out before then. For latecomers, there's always primitive camping.

The 2018 Barber Vintage Festival is Oct 5-7. Many of you travel a great distance to go to this event. We are the previous weekend and less than 300 miles from Barber Motorsports Park. It may be something for consideration.

NEW FOR THIS YEAR: A limited class vintage bike show. Classes are yet to be determined. Please check back for more information on the bike show.

Just a reminder, if you plan on attending the XSSE Vintage Yamaha Rally in September (9/28 to 10/1) and want a bed, make sure to call the Iron Horse and book a cabin or bunkhouse. After March 15, it might be too late.


Our Rally planning team (Mike, Mike, Paul, Kurt, Nancy, Brent, Marty, Peter and Jeff) is conferring Monthly (actually every two weeks at this point) to plan and organize a fun Rally for 2018.

Two things we wanted to advise are:
> Book with Iron Horse by March 15th or after that it is highly likely that all that will be available is dirt to pitch a tent. Tent spot is great if you want to camp but if you prefer a bed, book by Mar 15th. As always, if your plans change you can cancel your reservation up till July 20th.
> Also RSVP on the vintageyamaharally.com web page so we can get a headcount

Having an accurate headcount via RSVP will be extremely helpful as the Rally Planning Team continues to prepare for the Rally. If you are staying at the Tuskeegee or some other location and participating in the Rally please RSVP on the Rally web page since we need a total count of attendees. If you are camping, RSVP. That would help us out a bunch ......... Please RSVP if you haven't

If you've been to XSSE before you know the drill
If you've never been and are thinking about it, Welcome, it is a fun time

Man, I keep trying to make this happen. Maybe this year but I'm dealing with a broken leg at the moment that's putting a damper on this riding season. I'll have to play it by ear.

You may want to reserve a space. If you cancel 60 or more days out, there is no cost to you. This thing is going to be a sell-out.
