« on: August 01, 2022, 09:14:28 AM »
Hello fellow X-Riders.

The Fall X-Riders Rally is fast approaching. September 8-11-2022.  If you plan to stay at the host hotel please contact them to reserve a room ASAP. Mention the XH riders club to get one of the rooms in the reserved Block.   Ambers Inn & Suites  1113 Broadway Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965  (608) 253-2623
http://ambershideaway.com/.

The tentative agenda is as follows:

Thursday: Arrival area rides on your own or explore the town. There are plenty of things to do and see in this great vacation retreat. Rumor has it that there will be some  friendly competition at the local Go-Kart track to determine superior driving skills. That evening we will identify a location to gather for an informal evening meal.  Afterwards it is the traditional gathering in the parking lot for conversation and welcoming in the late arrivals.

Friday:  Kick stands up  at 10:00 for a group ride through the beautiful Wisconsin country side, We will stop for lunch on route. Please have your tanks filled and be in the hotel parking lot by no later than 9:30.  That evening the club will host a cookout at the Hotel. Please bring your favorite beverage and any snacks you may want to enjoy and share. The master Chef's will prepare some great summertime food for all to enjoy. There will be a special prize give away that evening, you must be present to win.

Saturday: Kick stands up @ 11:00 Brain Franson and Denny Wilkinson have a great ride planned for us.  Again please have your tanks filled and be in the hotel parking lot by no later than 10:30. The ride  will be approximately 4-5 hours with stops. The ride will end at Famous Dave's in Lake Delton for supper. Later we will again gather at the hotel or take the opportunity to explore some of the entertainment available in the Dells.

Sunday: No formal planned events. Take the time to say your goodbyes to those heading home. make plans for the Spring Rally

I just checked with the Hotel and they only have 2 rooms left in the building for the Rally.

Please get your room booked if you think you are going to join us.

Canceled my room this week....
Me and fat jesus are rooming up again. LOLOL.... that name...

Just some information. I'll be leaving eastern NebraXi thursday morning and heading mostly thru Iowa to the Dels event. I'll be trailering, stupid back. Anyone break down or want to ride along, I've got room for another bike. Everyone locally here bailed, so I'll be by myself. And I won't mind veering off course some miles to pick anyone up, if they don't mind paying for a a bit of gasoline.
I can be easily be reached at 1 402 432 9131.

Not sure what was posted on Facebook on this ride/event... So I'll make a poke at it here.

We had I believe 17 X's show up. With 26 folks over all? I don't know why, but this event for me was a really good time, more so than others. I do not mean to down play the other events I've attended, but this one sticks out.
Got to see some great old friends, and made some new ones. Ernie out of Iowa, and Frank and his Wife. Old Bob and Evil Bob with their posse showed up here and there all weekend.... nice to see them again.
Evening social gathering were great all 3 nights. The Motel, really fit us ergonomically. They even had a fire pit that they lit for us 2 nights. 3rd night too wet....
Thursday's supper was furnished by Mike Locklear... so very kind of a gesture. We passed a hat. Large assortments of meats and salads, with some side dishes.
Fridays ride was run by local Tyler. A very nice ride, on some very nice roads. Cool sites to see. Our lunch date dropped the ball on us, but Tyler found us another place, that was quite frankly some of the best BBQ I've ever had. Wisconsin.... who knew.
Notice, how I keep bringing up food?.....
Meal that night was furnished by the club.... another nice gesture. Taco night.... with ALL the trimmings!!
Saturdays ride looked gloomy and wet, especially on the radar. But the Ride went very well actually. Didn't get wet until the last 6 miles or so. Coming from NebraXi, this ride was a dandy, as it was nice and cool.
Club had reserved us a place to have supper Saturday night, but the social hour got the best of us. We all just ended up having left overs from the previous 2 nights at the motel, which in its self wasn't bad at all.
Until 8ish oclock rolled around. Frank Nowaczyk and his Wife showed up with a mini van full of pizzas, and a case of beer. And as we tend to know, its always beer 30.....   Thanx again Frank!!

A special event took place Saturday evening. Jamie Jones took the floor, and made an official announcement. Jamie and Marti are idling down in the X community. They are not quitting, but slowing down into retirement. Lovely (Mom)Marti is having some health issues, which will be taking up more of Jamies time. I know Jamie will continue working on X's, but most likely not as many, and they will not be dealing with parts anymore.

This announcement was the passing of the guard in a sense. With Jamies blessing, Mike and Sandy Seastrom will now be handling ALL parts, and are eager to start working on X's.
Mike and Sandy have purchased ALL of the parts. Note to repeat....ALL of the parts. You can find these parts at EHparts.net. I've ordered a few from them since they have gotten organized, and I've been very pleased with the service. But I will miss my lengthy calls with Marti.

Anyone who knows me, knows I'm the worst guy to remember names.... if I punished your name above, or if I missed mentioning you.... please forgive me. it really doesn't make your presents any less, it just shows I'm an idiot. Great seeing everyone, and catching up.

Great write-up. Glad you had a good time. From the pictures on Bookface, that seemed to be shared by everyone. I wish picture posting and sharing worked better on this forum. I stole some of the pictures from over there and reposted here for the non bookface members.

I'm not on facebook either any more.... been off of there 2 years now. Phil Marks in Penn. keeps me up to speed on what's posted.

Nice pictures. The group bike shot, doesn't show how unique that place was. Very pretty..... lake/pond with big ass rocks and ledges. Right in town.
Next shot obviously a ride... looks cloudy, so I suspect saturdays ride.
Next shot looks to be friday night....  Locklear and his Wife Doris, ....
And yeah, Me with Sandy and Tami in the last shot. I'm looking like I'm a giant...
