Having been in similiar situations I can say Yes. HE was overheating. Ridin in snow is a LOT of work.

Here's a shot of my Beasts I took today.

It was my first ride in the snow. Very difficult for me. At some points the bike was overheating, but it was in first gear spinning like crazy. Enjoyed it a lot.
I just love this bike

KTM 950/990 Adventure owners show off your bike

...not sure if I'm showing my bike in this pic but yes, that spot is my 990 in the Route 40, Argentina, during my last trip to Tierra del Fuego

It's a 450 km long dirt ultra-mega-superhighway. I was riding alone for hours, no cars, no bikes, no nothing. Fascinating !

But it's tricky; you begin doing 100 km/h, then 110, then 130, then 140 ... you even don't realize you're going too fast, alone in the middle of nowhere, you get tired after three of four hours and it's very easy to make a mistake, very easy to ride out from that narrow line clean of stones.
I panic a couple of times, too tired and going too fast.
Next day I met two dutch guys and they told me they found a guy in a BMW with his neck broken ...

Ya, ya, I know. I have the vids uploaded now (left it running overnight) - just have to post it here now. (Got home at midnight Sunday night & 1am last night ... cream crackered!)

Where is the photo of us side-by-side? BDG??

The challenging stuff was fun! Tough. But fun. Probably easy for you guys - but Im keen to get back out there.

An excellent weekend - many thanks to Pyn and BDG.
