    New Jersey?
    You posted on a thread for a rally in North Carolina. You'll probably have better luck posting your question to the appropriate forum.

    The white XJ400 has a curved license plate mounted at or near the rear axle.

    You have to be careful about state requirements when you do such things. For example, in Georgia they don't fuss about vertical or horizontal, or where you put it. The law says legible, so in front of the back tire will get you a conversation with the deputy. They are fussy about it being lighted. The law says lighted.

    All that said, I don't know where Bob's XJ400 was tagged. A nice bike for sure!

    Vintage Yamaha Rally Attendees,

    Nancy and I have come up to the Iron Horse for a weekend get away and found some very significant changes here!!!

    Many of the facilities have been updated and improved.
    • The front parking area has been re-done with concrete.
    • A larger trailer parking area was created behind the semi-private cabins.
    • Additional covered parking concrete bike parking adjacent to the lodge.
    • Most of the buildings have a new coat of paint.
    • The meeting room has been significantly improved with more seating, new pool tables, etc.
    • The previously stone parking areas at Lone Star & Homestead are now concrete (probably will help those Harley guys avoid dropping their bikes)
    • An alternate entry/exit created to access Lower Stecoah Road.
    • Apparently there was a lake behind the bunk house? Never saw it before but it's being beautified and made accessible. I'm told it's STOCKED to the gills (LOL)
    • It appears many other changes/upgrades are coming as well.

    Although the Iron Horse has been the best facility in the area, it was showing a little age here & there. Seems that is being addressed ++++

    Nancy & I hope to get an opportunity to speak to the owner and get more information we can share with ya'll.

    Pictures will be coming!

    Kurt & Nancy

    UPDATE: The bunkhouse will be updated and an additional bunkhouse added before our rally with ADDITIONAL SPACES in the new updated cabins.
    There will also be a couple of Connestoga Wagons installed at the perimeter of the pond available for camping as well.
    SO...… if you've been late to the party you can still get a place to spend the night.
    Shoot me an e-mail or PM if interested. IH will let me and Jeff know when they are ready and they give us a couple days for our Vintage Yamaha Rally attendees to grab the spots before they are opened to the public.

    There will be no shirt sale at the rally. You buy one now. You'll get it at the rally. The sale ends the last day of August. We won't print extras. Capisce?

    Its just over a month away and can hardly wait. Both bikes have new paint and tires. I'll be there on Wednesday to start the fun.
    Anyone else from XJbikes going? You'll be missing a great time if not.

    Thanks, Mark! This is what it's all about. Put some faces with screen names. Make it personal.

    We're bringing some hats. We printed enough to sell 100% of them. When you come to the rally, you'll have to find me and I can sell you one. If I still have them on Friday afternoon, Nancy will have them at the registration desk. A nice embroidered hat for $20.

    If I get enough response here I might get some more.
