I would guess, that if the temp doesnt get above 100* out...You wouldnt be able to over heat them at all.
I heated my rear 5100s to the point that I couldnt hold my hand on them for more than about a second while out wheelin last week in about 40* weather(once I realized they were so hot I let em cool down a bit). So, i'd say its more than possible to get em hot as I wasnt even trying, granted I was mobbing down some old dirt logging/fire roads at a decent clip for probably 5-10 miles. The front OMEs only got a tad warm though, so I was less than impressed with my Bilsteins when I found them to be cookin hot.
