Featured 2022 XS650 calendar submission *Nominations*

Discussion in 'The Garage' started by samoran1, Sep 22, 2021.

    XS'ers,
    It's (PAST) that time a year again to nominate, vote, and decide who will be featured in the 2022 XS650 calendar! I'd like to see more nominations this year than EVER! We've got some work to do as I have been crushed at work and I am a little behind so everyone that spreads the word on this will help keep this thing alive.

    This will be the official thread for the 2022 XS650 Calendar. NOW is the time to get quality photos if you want to be nominated or have a shot at being selected in the calendar. Deadlines are going to have to be tight this year as I am a little behind. I am feeling very optimistic with a goal of shipping calendars in early November.

    PLEASE READ ENTIRE POST:

    Post UP TO (3) nominations here in this thread with a picture. Nominations MUST INCLUDE PHOTO AND MEMBER NAME IN POST. Please notify the member you have nominated to accept nomination. NOMINATION PHOTOS DO NOT NEED TO BE HIGH RESOLUTION.

    Phase 1: NOMINATIONS - Through October 2nd or 24+ Bikes (whichever comes sooner)
    Phase 2: VOTING STAGE - October 4-10th
    Phase 3:
    WINNERS SEND INFO - October 17th unless contact and arrangements are made
    Phase 4)Production>Shipping>Delivery

    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.

    PHOTO TAKING NOTES: Most smartphone cameras now take high resolution photos if that is all you have.
    1.) Make sure your phone is turned sideways (landscape) when taking photos
    2.) Always leave enough background space on all sides. This makes it better when cropping and preparing the layout of the main images. I can be zoom in and crop but can't add background and your bike will get cut off on the page
    3.) Please do not use filters as this will degrade the image in all likelihood.
    4.) Send the raw camera files (full size image) from phone or camera, nothing from the internet

    Nominations - Through October 2nd
    1. NOMINATE UP-TO 3 bikes that you'd like to see in the calendar for 2022. Nominee must be a member with their bike/build posted on XS650.com. Remember PHOTO and MEMBER NAME included in nomination post.
    2. Contact the bike owner and let them know of the nomination and verify.
    3. Nominations must be seconded by another member.
    4. Nominations must be accepted by owner to be included in the voting thread.
    5. You ARE allowed to self nominate (must be seconded to be considered for voting)
    6. You ARE allowed to second nominate more than one bike.

    Voting - October 4-10th
    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)

    Calendar Selection Winners - PHOTOS DEADLINE October 17th
    Selected members will be contacted by 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. We will again use a drop box link to upload photos and bios.

    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.

    Happy you're still alive and kickin' Shawn. :)

    What makes a calendar girl? My restored SG made it. Bob's restored XS-2 made it. There's been exotic monoshock's that have made it, as well as some pretty sweet bobbers and trackers. Is beauty just skin deep? Is one mans treasure another's scrap? What makes a calendar girl?

    @jetmechmarty has owned his '83SK since it rode off the showroom floor down in Florida in '83. It's been in his care ever since. Still has the original motor that made it to 60K miles before wanting a fresh top end. She ain't no hanger queen either, she's still tearin' up the backroads of Mississippi. I'd say she wears her years pretty well too.

    What makes a calendar girl? If a one owner survivor... a daily rider doesn't qualify, what does?

    I’d like to nominate @Rhy650 for his beautiful 1971 XS1B. This was a legacy build, it was an un completed project that belonged to his father. Rhy took it over ( as well as an ‘80 Special that is deserving of its own nomination ) with little mechanical experience, Rhy threw himself into learning how to work on this bike and did his own paint as well. I’d say it’s one hell of a freshman effort!

    Thanks, Bob! This forum has helped me so much... this bike is a tribute as much as a testament to the fine people who have helped me along the way. It has meant a great deal to me over the past year.
