F650 Problem

Quote:
Having riden with L2l, I know what you're talking about. That boy rides like the wind.
L2L is an incredibly skilled rider, I can't tell you how difficult some of the muddy sections were, and to watch him negotiate the mud on a fully loaded (overloaded) GS was a treat. Of course he could have lost about 40lbs if he'd left the Red Bull's behind.

JimC, what happened to your 650?
The fan froze up on me, and with the radiator guards and fork gaiters, the bike overheated. The fan was suspect before I left and I wanted to replace it, but just ran out of time. I blame myself more than the bike for the problem. Other than this self inflicted problem the bike worked incredibly well in all conditions and and I averaged 60mpg for the entire trip.
