True, suspension work is a given. If I do the lowering deal where reach on tough terrain is a non-issue I wouldn't much care about bodywork damage as it most likely won't be seeing the deck. Famous last words... My bigger concern is will the bike be struggling at 70 mph and will it get decent range at that speed? With our frequent high speed winds it could struggle just to maintain speed limit on our roads too. With riding the Monkey on back roads I've learned to take it easier which is why the consideration of the smaller bike. That 701 though. 70 mph was nothing! Did everything well. Would have liked more range stock. Wonder if KTM or Husqvarna would do a twin Enduro with the 890 and not be a pig?
