Just curious. I am now a bit nervous about remote trips on the Dakar.
Can happen to anyone, anywhere any time. Try it sometime in the outback of Nicaragua, bitched at the bike till I was red in the face. The whole time it was a 5 day old battery, did the same thing yours did.

Ride the damn thing and enjoy.

One of the beautiful things about riding solo is the quality of the social experience.
