    I don't know about that. Last year, more that half of the attendees got YAMAHA tee shirts. That's pretty cool right there. Your organizing team perspective is keeping this thing going without going too deep out of pocket. That being said, you may go to http://vintageyamaharally.com and donate five bucks.... or more. Every little bit helps. Either way, we're going to have a great time!

    Most of you are procrastinating until the last minute. Time is running out. Get them now! You know you want one!

    If you wish to save us PayPal fees, send an email with your shirt request and payment to: VYRShirtOrder@gmail.com You may select the friends and family option there.

    You may otherwise go to http:vintageyamaharally.com and wait a few seconds for a pop-up window (or click SHOP tab) that will take you to shirt order. The rest is self explanatory.

    Also, we have one of these on each page. [​IMG]
    Please feel free to click it and send us $5 or whatever you'd like. Thanks to those who have donated. Every little bit helps keep this thing going. [​IMG]

    No rally shirts will be for sale at the rally. Buy now or do without. Sale ends 31 August.

    If you're planning to camp at the Iron Horse for this event, it's best to make a reservation. That will secure your spot, and also, you will receive the menu choices from the IH in your email. http://ironhorsenc.com

    Glad they did not get much rain. I was concerned about roads washing out in the area. We in central NC got 5 inches of rain and high winds that brought down trees and power lines. Not bad compared to the coast, they had several feet of rain in the past 3 days.

    If you're coming, you may wish to copy this. It's also on the rally site. For those with reservations, you should have received menu choices from IH.

    Getting all my bikes ready for the rally...… still not sure which ones are going.
    • I can only take three (2 in van, 1 riding).
    • Definitely going to have an XJ and an XS11.
    • SECA is running great and want to show it off but just too small for 2-up riding with the wife.
    • Wife is learning to ride the Min-Maxim 550 so that's a good candidate too.
    • I always take a spare in case someone needs it and last year an active duty Army member got to go for a ride on my spare.

    Get a bigger trailer Kurt, that will solve the problem. I am bringing 4 bikes but only 2 are mine.

    One of the first arrivals is this (my) '82 SECA 650.

    Weather Report:
    We've had a LITTLE light drizzle today and a LITTLE is expected for tomorrow.
    PAY NO ATTENTION to the national weather forecasts for EASTERN North Carolina. The North Carolina coast is >500 MILES FROM Stecoah in WESTERN North Carolina!! There are NO road closures over here absolutely NO EFFECT from any of the weather problems FAR EAST OF HERE!!


    Weather is expected to be great for the weekend here.

    Vintage Yamaha Rally...
    1995 Model FJ1200. According to the owner, this was a special import he believes may have been from Australia/Oceania, possibly the only one of these in the U.S.A.!
