    Excellent. PMs and emails have been sent to a bunch of people to hopefully wrap this all up before I get the voting thread posted.

    I pm'd motormike several days ago and asked him to 'accept' his nom. I see he must have not. Too bad, but looking at his reply on this thread, he's using the cheers and I agree reply....I thought this would be enough to accept the nom. Guess not.:(
    His bike could have 'made' this calendar hands down.

    @MrBultaco Looking at it again, I agree that his post should be good enough. It does not seem that he was replying to anything directly above his post, so I think we can assume he was accepting his nomination. If not, he won't send more pictures and won't be in the calendar anyway. I've included him in the voting thread.

    Everyone, the voting thread has been posted! http://www.xs650.com/threads/2020-xs650-calendar-vote-here.55776/ You might want to hold off a couple of days on voting to allow people to post better photos in that thread and promote their bikes. I usually promote the voting thread via email and social media and will wait a day or two to do that.

    I'm closing this thread as well.
