Cylinder Head gasket

Hi there
Im tripping through patagonia right now but im stuck because my cylinder Head gasket is damaged. This happened on the Careterra Austral and im happy that i found a mechanic. So while im waiting for the new gasket i wonder how this could happen. Its a New 2011 bike with 15000 km. Yes it was hot and yes i drove about 4 hrs gravel until my cooling liquid came Out like a fountain. I Talkes to another f 800 rider and he told me that he never checked his cooling liquid since 100000 km. Of somebody has an explantion for that and Knows how to prevent that this won't happen again let me know. Maybe its just bad luck but i dont want to get stuck on ruta 40 cause auf these issues.
Thanks for help
