The dread physical break internal to the battery. Woe is me.

    So I rode my bike north to Great Falls on this nice Sunday morning to the Walmart store where I found the Everstart ES14-BS battery which fit the F800 perfectly. I have fond memories of Great Falls. For those so inclined this Walmart Supercenter is about 1.7 miles from the Montana Expo Center. I think I'll go back just to visit the battery shelves in the Automotive section.
    I trust that it is just a platonic relationship

    Great Falls, MT. Looks like there's about 80 RV sites with power, some with shade.

    Hey boys and girls, Still a few months away,,,, but wanted to throw this out, The wife and I have a campground just west of Cody .Wy which may or may not be on the way for some of you travelers onto the National Rally but if you need a safe campspot for a day or two coming and going to the rally, let me know. We offer tent camping for motorcyclists only and also rent furnished tipis and cabins . The tenting I will give you a MOA deal on but the tipis and cabins are in our high season so if desired , no discounts on them. We have a killer bath house , wi fi, creekside tenting, firepits, and hot coffee in the AM. There will be about 6 to 8 of us riding up to Great Falls on Thursday of the rally, so any and or all could ride along. PM if interested . See ya on the road

    Annie and I visited the rally site (MT Expo Park) this past Saturday. There was a crafts fair and it gave us an excuse to drive up there and take a look at the park. There is an area with many very tall trees that should offer some good shade. Some of the RV hook-ups are covered by trees. I do not know what space will be allocated to tent camping, but there are some good options that offer shade. There are two restaurants and a bar right outside the fence and near a gate that is near what I can only assume will be a camping area (a very good BBQ place and a Kobe Japanese Steak house). We found a shopping area with several food options about a mile away from the park. I cannot say we did a complete recon of the surrounding area.

    The facilities at the park look like they can meet the needs of the rally with ease. There is a great deal of parking space and potential locations for venders and seminars also look ample. I think the park will be a great rally site.

    Thanks for the update and recon mission!

    Shady parking is always appreciated at summer rallies!
