    Historically, this was for years, an XS Eleven rally. I believe there were more XS650’s than anything in 2019.

    It was close. Lots of other old Yamies also! Everyone there was great to talk to. Iron Horse is very nice and biker friendly.
    If you go and don't have fun you just can't have fun.
    I will note the Tail Of The Dragon is much better in daylight than at 1 in the morning. So time your arrival accordingly.

    I am no longer involved with the Vintage Yamaha Rally in any way, shape, or form. I simply went on XS11.club and copied post #1 about the rally and pasted it at XS650.com. I have not opened FB since about October, so outside of here, I'm not spreading the word.

    The XS650 Society has a rally in Mountain View, AR every April. 2020 canceled due to the pandemic. 2021 may suffer the same fate, but some of us may gather there anyway... or someplace. Facilities are not fully open currently.

    I didn’t say I wasn’t. I haven’t committed. I have limited time off and I’ve been to this rally 18 times. 2020 being my only absence. No one has been more times than me!

    I'm sorry. It's a great rally. I am no longer involved with the organization of the rally. I did not intend that to mean I would not ever go. I have a lot of friends who are there every year.

    Me too..Many friends..I have been associating with this rally since 2010..Before that Earl G would always rave about it when we were in attendance at XSEast back in the early 2000s....

    It started as a vintage Japanese motorcycle rally. It was taken on and kept alive by the XS11.com group. As that group began to wane, we moved it to Vintage Yamaha, beginning with 2016. The move to the Iron Horse happened in 2011.
