I was playing in the snow today for a couple of hours. I suppose there is around 1.5 to 2ft out there, at least. I was mainly in second wide open, when I got home I couldn't believe it................never even thought about overheating. The whole front end was packed solid, I mean solid. My Ruby and Rinny would have overheated for sure, been there done that. The old Foreman was virtually WIDE OPEN the whole time, yeah fan was running but that is it.....................AWESOME!!

That's why I bought a Foreman S.More simple and less things to go wrong. Mine's been packed with snow too,which probably stops air flow,but it still never overheated.

Same here. Runs often but never seems to overheat. I installed a switch to turn the fan on manually and I run it if I'm worried about the bike running hot. Plus it's great to be able to hit the switch to confirm that the fan is working.

Coop, I have ran my foreman going 55mph on the road for over 15 min and it ran fine. That is even after i took it in some slop mud for over 2 hours. The fan kicks on once i ride it for a while, but i just run it in the open for a few min to get some air into it. I cane imagine it overheating if you drove it at 65 for a while though.

After we got our 2 foot blizzard here in Colorado I ran down the road in 2nd wide open I didn't even realize I was in second I never ride with the throttle wide open except in 4th or 5th gear when I got off my dad was outside he said look under there where your winch is its completely packed with snow he didnt think it was getting any air because he didnt know where the air intake was on the new foremans I tried to get some out of there and it was like a rock the foreman never overheated though but the fan was runnig

I like MN, I'm sure Warroad is in State Tourney's again. Seems like they are a constant in the world of Hockey .

I would trade it for Colorado though I can just imagine the hunting I could do out there; probably wouldn't be married very long but it might be worth it
