Actually i don't get it why you need a 2nd cooling fan/lower tem thermostat in Canada of all places ? Has you bike overheated anytime (not just the fan coming on) ? My bike has never overheated even in the humid summers here in the middle-east while riding in the desert. Of course the fan keeps running all the time like crazy but the engine has never overheated.
Vicks great to know you do most of the work yourself. I do most of the work or any mods myself as well except if there is any mapping or warranty issues as I have purchased the KTM extended care warranty plan. I'm also in the process of making a few special tools.

It does get pretty hot & sticky here in summer, but there are times when the temperature could go upto 40 degrees & the sun is really sharp out here. I do not have any overheating issues, but in summer when the temperature is 35+ the fans kicks in & stay on most of the time (especially in stop & go traffic). I guess your bike you must be equipped with the middle east cooling package for sure which comes as standard to withstand the temperatures out there .

This city was flooded by the river after the Chaiten volcano erupted three years ago. While some people still lives there, the view is quite sad.

These will be my last current pictures for a while, we pack up tomorrow and head back to 8200' and snow .

Today started out on the 450, but 10 miles in blew the front tire then made the wife cry. No I didnt bitch at her- I had her follow me through some stuff that was a little over her head (too steep-too rough). So the day ended early with the thought of no spare tube with us now for 2 front tires. Back home by noon and she says to go ride the 990
Here are a couple of her (I know its not showing off my 990- YET)
doing good here

Not so good here - why dont women like their picture taken when they nap ?

Heres the 990 and a couple bonus pics-



Sink hole - actually a mine


These guys giving me the stink eye - just cuz I roosted em a little bit,




This was freaking steep and that 908 was not performing any magic here.

Thats Mexico in the back ground, Im about 4 miles from the border

The end : for a little while at least.

yikes, we will be in Pagosa by Wed afternoon , hope it melts. We have 40mph winds here today, made the decision to leave tomorrow afternoon after the winds subside- rather haul 42 feet of trailer in the cool of the night with less wind.

I know, huh?

But, you've gotta give him credit... he's done way more than just ride his GSs to Starbucks; and he's put way more miles on his bikes than Ewan ever did... all without a gigantic support team following him around.

Hmmm... I'm suddenly in the mood to read Roadshow again

Drive safe. The roads are crap right now. Warm snow.
Let's hook up for a ride once this melts!
