    FZ-07 is gutless. Great bike if you're new, timid, or (I guess) more responsible than me, but in my opinion it was seriously lacking in the fun department. FZ-09 on the other hand....great bike.

    Lacking fun and bikes bubs usually owns are one in the same.

    The 701 occupies an uncomfortable niche in that:
    - there are definitely much better bikes for me and my use cases
    - I can never quite bring myself to seriously consider selling it

    I have a 2019 SM. It is the most fun bike I have ever rode. There is nothing like it. One of the best purchases I have ever made.

    I have a '17 690

    send it

    but if you're just doing street, why not get a street bike

    I do 250-400 mile loops from home into where the fist 60-80 miles from home are at 75-95mph on freeways...hmm, maybe I do need a 790/890/T7. but man do I hate 400+lb bikes in the desert

    I think you have the perfect bike for your locale. Just make it optimal and KEEP IT FFS! lol

    For long trips this seat is worth every penny. I have done a couple 200mi rides with this seat and it was great. The stock seat sucks after 20mi.

    Yes that’s the only place that has a 2020/21 Husqvarna 701 that I can find.
    Was one in PA but that sold so I guess I’ll just scour FB marketplace

    So it looks like the two dealers that had one sold them but did not update their website so maybe I’ll be watching for the 2022s to come out , can anyone recommend a good Husqvarna dealer in mass or New Hampshire to deal with

    Good luck finding any knowledgeable KTM/Husq dealer in the northeast. The only one I've ever heard decent things about is Edelmann's in Troy NY, but my buddy didn't have the best experience with them with his 790.

    I believe Souhegan Valley Motorsports still carries Husqvarna. Just over the boder of MA in NH.

    Noel (Gixerjockey) is sales manager at Colonial Power & Sport in Milford (KTM)

    Motorbikes Plus https://www.motorbikesplus.com/ in Portsmouth is where I bought my 701SM and Edlemann sales https://edelmannsales.com/ in NY is where I bought my 300 both did right by me on the pricing of the bikes in my opinion. I get my parts elsewhere for pricing reasons and typically do my own maintenance.

    They got back to me today and said they’re not expecting any for a while
