Day 7: 259 miles, Browning, MT to Lincoln, MT

Written on: Thursday July 12th, 2007

With daylight, a fresh battery, complements of Ted, and freshly adjusted valves, we left the reservation and hit the Going to the Sun Highway through Glacier NP. This was really great, though much busier than I had expected. There were countless mountain lakes and streams to stop and take a dip in. Of course, ummm, we didn't.

Next stop was to locate a voltage requlator, slap it in and head back to Yellowstone (~395 miles to the south). Found a regulator, but still no charging; a bunch of calls led me to check the rotor, which had failed. By luck, we found the one rotor in the state at the Cycle Haus in Kalispell, MT. After about 4 hours BSing about guns and manufacturing, and a little work, I left there $200 poorer, but a new rotor and sweet belt buckle richer.

After a dip in Flathead lake (check that off the life goal list), another late night took us to Lincoln and another motel.
