I was reading some Adv Bike pages on Facebook and came across a guy who put a hole in his radiator on his GSA. There were several comments from other guys who said that you could carry on to seek help if you were stranded. Is there a limit as how far or how fast you could go in this situation. I always thought you were #"$&ed in this situation.

Even on a cool day with light load I'd be concerned. The coolant also acts as a lubricant for parts of the water pump as @PerazziMx14 points out.

Definitely a "your mileage may vary" situation.

I saw it on Facebook so we know what that means, could be true or not.. But I would still like to know what is possible in these circumstances. Specially when I travel in my area, not too many BMW shops around in SE Mexico and Central America. I think Aventure Rider is where I saw it.
