    Withy this thread 102 pages long, I lost the map someone posted showing a couple routes out of Boise. I am planning a quick haul from California, and looking for some fun roads to get me there. I have 5 days to get to Great Falls, 3 days to get home!

    Thumbs up "The" Rally : Opening Day at ExpoPark in Two Months...

    Guessing you will be there! And likely already have for a couple of days & nights... in the State at least.

    Great riding where history abounds. Interesting museums, good food and cold beer.

    Oh... You want a ride for delicious pie with hot coffee, and later that afternoon a mermaid show! Check.

    All combined with the lovely fresh air of Montana's June weather.

    Get ready for Great Falls... Saddle Up!

    You're right! I've been Googling small towns we'll be passing through as we finish our westward journey and begin hooking north through Wyoming and Idaho into Montana. Many of those towns you'd pass through without a second thought have significant history of the First People and the pioneer eras. We're definitely slowing down to take in some of it!

    Going-to-the-Sun Road reservations filling up fast!

Please be prepared to show your reservation confirmation and photo ID at park entrance stations upon arrival.

    Day-use entry reservation tickets are limited. Approximately 2/3 of the entry reservation tickets will be available up to 60 days in advance with the remaining 1/3 of entry reservation tickets being released two days in advance. Prior to the full opening of the Going-to-the-Sun Road there will be fewer tickets available each day.

    Entry reservation tickets can be secured at www.recreation.gov beginning at 6 am MST on April 29, 2021.

    Visitors entering the park at Many Glacier, Two Medicine, Polebridge, or along Highway 2 do not need an online entry reservation ticket. Access to these areas may be temporarily limited during times of peak visitation.
    I got my reservation for the 25th this morning and had a wait to get them, over 100 reservations were made for Friday in the first 10 minutes!

    Any idea why it is now called the the "BMW MOA National Rally"? All the previous ones I attended were international rallies.

    Maybe because the northern border seems closed to riders?

    My 2020 confirm says National Rally

    My 2017 confirm says International Rally

    My 2018 confirm say National Rally

    I missed 2019 :-(

    I always referred to it as the National Rally but not sure what the official name was.

    National or International

    Memory a bit fuzzy but I remember seeing on events calendar in the past, two separate listings for MOA National and International rallies with same time, place and description.

    I always thought "National" which is what it was called the first dozen or so I attended. Then "International" was used to recognize our many non-U.S. members. For several years I have just called it the BMW MOA Rally. You know: like the Kansas Rally, the Shakamak Rally, the Iowa Rally, the Sipapu Rally, etc.
