I love him! He's so easy to ride: super responsive and easy to throw around. Still getting to know him. My other bike is a Triumph Street Triple R with a huge rev range, which is really different than this little thumper.

The tires are awesome. The suspension is lovely - though not stock. I got softer springs put in (I weigh about 100 lbs) and had them compressed to lower the bike a little.

I got him for the tight twisties that I normally ride in Marin, Sonoma, and Napa counties. Turns out he's ok on a longer trip too. I took him on a long weekend trip to the Sierras a couple weeks ago. Got a couple Wolfman saddlebags and made a duffle to strap over the top. Obviously long freeway riding isn't the best. Vibrates a lot, so can't see anything in my mirrors. The seat is the most uncomfortable seat I've ever had. It has about 1/2" of foam. He's already too tall for me, so adding more foam isn't something I want to do. I'm learning to stand more instead.

The one complaint: the exhaust is angled directly at the rear left turn signal and melts it. I made a heat shield to protect the light.

Not sure about the 701, but the 690 has the catalytic converter in the pipe. Put on a Leo Vince slip on, and the heat goes away.

Good to know about the catalytic converter. This weekend a deer pushed my exhaust out of place and now it's melting the tail piece. I guess it's time for a new exhaust.

Here's some deer hair in my front wheel.
