    What a shiny piece of machinery on 2 wheels! I've been tempted to upgrade to a 701 but I'll probably wait until retirement and see where I will relocate. Got SW Utah on my radar.

    Keep up the excellent progress on the Monkey! Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year to you as well.

    After Monday tuning session is done with we'll see where the Monkey is headed, project wise.

    Edit: if you are looking at the 701, go for it. It really can cover a lot of bases. I was hesitant because of preconceived reliability internet drivel.

    Still stock clutch slave cylinder on mine(there is a big aftermarket for "upgraded slave cylinders" which I sometimes wonder is the real reason they are supposedly unreliable. A couple people had issues and then it became gospel to immediately replace the unit when somebody bought a 690/701.

    I decided to not buy into the hype and mine has been without fault.

    Most of my miles are highway though so maybe the slave cylinder hasn't had as many cycles to cause issues. Couldn't say. Bulletproof for me though.

    Wish I'd went for one sooner as I never would have needed a Super Tenere or CRF450L. The 690/701 to me is the sweet spot between the two(If you aren't packing 2 people and tons of luggage).

    Any bike with a windshield I could never be happy with airflow and visibility so I'd rather be without.

    I don't wear the big MX style dirt boots.

    Was using Ariat work boots until I messed up the lace loops in August and now I'm using the boots I bought off of Joel that are like a hybrid hiking/riding boot.

    Plus, I'm beyond careful with everything and I don't consider myself to be that hardcore of an off-roader. Competent and calculated but never really pushing the limits. If I think I'm going to crash or drop the bike I'll avoid a section.

    Chillis- there’s a monkey in Havasu on Craigslist with 200 miles for $3500, if you’re still looking for one...

    Clutch issue is real, my 2020 701 failed at a stop light with 175 miles on it. I still love the bike and planned to replace on first service anyhow...shifts fine without it.
