    Hey all!

    Can't believe it's that time of year already but winter and the new year are quickly approaching us. For a lot of us that means family time, good food, new year resolutions and of course new XS650 Calendars! I got a ton of great feedback from members saying they enjoyed seeing the calendar's on their walls as well as some unique stories behind some of them. So back by popular demand, we will be putting together another XS650.com calendar for 2014!

    This year's calendar will be a bit different from last year as far as bikes featured because there wasn't an XSOTM contest this year. This is okay though because we have a chance to add more bikes and pics to this years calendar!

    SO... I need your help in getting nominations and figuring out if we should go with more than one bike a month/page to show off more of the bikes that are on the site OR if you liked the format of last year, where there was a main photo and a few detail photos and descriptions of the bikes. There will be 12 months + a bonus month for January 2015 for a total of 13 months! Also, I will also make sure the hole is drilled this year... A few members had a hard time trying to figure out how to get a hole punched through paper:laugh:

    I need to get the order placed the first week in December to have a chance of having them in the first week of January so we have to move!

    **First we need nominations** All nominations/nominees must have access to high resolution photos, if at all possible, to ensure a high quality and professional look that all the hard work of the builders deserve. Last year you guys did a great job with getting great photos! Please submit nominations starting... NOW! :bike:

    If you nave a nominee in mind just comment and attach a photo to this thread and we will compile the nominees and vote on the entries. Last year was the XS650 of the month winners which made it easy. This year will obviously be different without XSOTM contest but we can still make it happen!

    Okay that's it for now, more updates and discussion to come!

    Thanks in advance guys,

    Shawn

  2. Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with for the 2014 calendar. I liked last year's format, but am okay with whatever.

    I'd like to nominate teamkandy's bike http://www.xs650.com/forum/showthread.php?p=284187#post284187 since it was the only XSOTM in 2013. I'd also like to nominate plane_ben's build "The 23" http://www.xs650.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23725

    Both probably need better pictures for the calendar and I think that may be the challenge this year. I guess the bikes that make it into the calendar might come down to who is able to provide high quality photos in time.

    No idea who this belongs to, but I've always liked looking at it. Sadly, it's all I have of it.

  6. I'm thinking we'll have to take all of the nominations and do a voting thread once we decide how many bikes will be included.

    Please include a link or picture of the bikes you nominate so people can find see them easily.

    Doesn't seem to be much interest in this. Time is ticking by if we want to get this done before Christmas.
