    Husqvarna 701 SM

    Does anyone here have a 701 SM? I picked mine up used recently, a 2016 model. Absolutely loving this bike so far, but its the first of its kind I have owned. I have only owned "conventional" road bikes in the past (last bike was a Speed Triple).

    Also I noticed that my bike has a Rally Raid lowering link in it. I haven't decided yet whether I want to keep the lowering link or swap it out for stock, but I'm leaning towards swapping it out. Anyone here got a standard link and would be interested in swapping for a lowering link?

    Cheers.

    Bruuuuuh so sick! Funny all I've owned is motards. I rode a conventional bike (KTM RC8) once and it felt alien to me. Nearly cramped up.

    How does the riding style feel to you? Must feel agile as fuck.

    The riding style is really fun - the bike is so light and turns soooo fast, but it takes getting used to, leaning at such high altitude. The torque is crazy.

    I don't do any HDR photos. Just increased localised contrast and a bit of desaturation. But here's a couple straight from the camera.

    Still looking for a standard suspension link - if anyone with a standard bike wants to lower theirs for free, get in touch and we can swap.

    Just bought my first motard...also a Husky FS701 2017. Has Akro exhaust and intakes on it. Not the 170-200hp I am used to on road bikes, but such a riot in it's own sense. Really light and flickable - was going to be a love it or hate it decision, and definitely falling the way of loving it so far.
    Nail your colours to the mast that all may look upon them and know who you are.
    It takes a big man to cry...and an even bigger man to laugh at that man.
