    You guys asked for it so here it is! The official thread for the 8th edition of the XS650 Calendar - 2020. Let's make this the smoothest calendar process yet. I want to keep the deadlines on this so let's get the nominations rolling! Thanks to everyone who helps out in any small way and for all the kind comments on the calendars each year. It is a lot of work to put together but makes it worth it in the end.

    PLEASE READ ENTIRE POST:

    Photo reminder: NOW is a good time to get some nice photos of your bike if you would like to be nominated before riding season is over and the snow falls. If no pictures or contact has been made after a week the next member with the most votes is in so make sure to follow all calendar threads.

    6. You ARE allowed to second nominate more than one bike.

    Voting
    1. 24+ bikes with nominations seconded by a member and accepted by owner, make it to voting stage.
    2. Vote for your favorite 13 bikes (Voting thread)
    3. Will be a set time for voting opening and closing.

    Calendar Selection Winners
    Selected members will be contacted be me, Shawn, (samoran1) with details of what is needed for calendar via PM and will be asking for an email address to receive photos and information.

    As always we will have a pre-sale for those of you who want to ensure your calendar. We will start the Pre-Sale earlier as well so more people are aware. PRE-ORDERS WILL NOT BE SHIPPED UNTIL PRODUCED. We will have banners and links on the site and Facebook for pre-sale and for sale link.

    If you Pre-Order you're guaranteed a calendar.
    After the pre-sale they are first come first serve. Calendars will be limited after the pre-order so order accordingly. Calendars will sell out and there WILL NOT be a re-order.


    Thanks everyone,
    Shawn

    Who is Rehar? My jaw dropped to the floor drooling. That is absolutely the sexiest xs I've ever seen. Hats off to who ever designed that frame. That's where
    my vote goes:bow2: and to Mailman & Mrbultaco. All three of those XS's are gorgeous:bow2:

    Off to a great start. Sent a message to Travis to hopefully send an email out and get this thread pinned so more people see it. Keep the nominations coming for those viewing too! Don't forget Gary's unofficial thread we need to nominate those that aren't yet on the official page!

    LInk: http://www.xs650.com/threads/unofficial-2020-calendar-nominations.54580/

    So far I have:
    mailman - 2nd
    Rehar - 2nd
    Jim - 2nd
    MrBultaco - 2nd
    halfmile - 2nd
