I am co-hosting this rally at the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge in September. We've been doing this since 2002, so we're getting pretty good at having this party. We have some great rides planned. Pictures, info, and history at XS Southeast. Home for the rally is XS11.com. I would sure like to see XS650's at this again, but all are welcome, even if you ride a Harley.

SE Rally Update So, time to start finalizing things for the SE Rally. I will post an updated weekend Schedule of Events in a few days. For starters, if you are a first time attendee, WELCOME We are planning to meet some new people again this year and chat with them about their bikes, then ride-ride-ride. A big WELCOME to the returnees too!
FOOD: As in the past, Iron Horse will publish the Fri-Sat Menu's a few days before we arrive and I will post them. For those that have made a room reservation (at the I-H) and paid the deposit then I-H will just take your order and post the charge to the room. Payable at checkout. If you have a roomie or tent mate then they will need to setup their own account with I-H so they can order and then have their food charges on their credit card. Same deal as last year.
ROADS: We will be riding the routes and doing a road check in the next week or so. Most of the roads here are in the good to excellent category so we should be good with the routes unless there have been some washouts or bridge problems. If you want a trip tic or gps file let me know after Sept 1 and I will email it to you.
ARRIVAL / CHECK-IN: When you arrive at the Iron Horse be sure to check-in with the I-H at the Registration Desk in their office. In addition please sign-in at the XS11 table we setup in the dining hall.
RALLY SHIRT: See the SE Rally Shirt thread if you want a shirt. At the rally you can pickup your shirt and pay for it at our XS11 sign-in table.
GEORGIA MEET POINT: As in the past couple years I think we will try and meet up at Day's Inn in Cornelia / Baldwin Georgia. Some ride up US441 to get around the Atlanta hassle and Cornelia in on US441 where it crosses I-985 and US23. That would be Thursday night Sept 25th. Then Friday AM Sept 26 we meet up with Brent and JetMech and ride over the mountain to the Iron Horse.
If you have some questions or need additional info please PM jetmech or myself and will we try to get you an answer. I have to correct that ride-ride-ride statement (above). I guess its more like eat, talk, loiter, ride-a-while gas up and repeat isn't it??
