    I know the feeling, my 701 leaked oil from new and it took a couple dealer trips to resolve. Nice having a warranty. But aside from that it's been a great bike, had it a year now and 4,200 miles on it.

    Hopefully yours is an easy fix, sounds like it's a common issue. You can bring it to any KTM shop as others said. What area of Jersey you in?

    I stopped wearing a watch several years ago when I worked a job where they were not permitted for safety reasons. It got to a point where since I wasn't wearing it through the week I gradually stopped on the weekends and later stopped bothering all together. Cell phone made it so I didn't even miss it after a while.

    Thanks for all the clock suggestions.... I realized a standard wrist watch around the handlebar pad would probably work well... if only I hadnt of just thrown out my random "Assholes live Forever" watch I got in a bundle!

    fuuu, that sucks. All them fancy electronics man.

    +1 In the last 10 years working at a university I have seen this shift too. Out of 20-30 student employees in our dept over a year you'd maybe have one or two without a drivers license (usually foreign with no need to get a license here in the states). Now it seems like over half of them just have zero desire and have no license... because why would they, they can get door dash, uber, and simply sit inside and on a computer all day, and never have to go more than their electric scooters range... its kind of sad to be honest.

    I can understand the convenience, but I get a lot of peace just being on the road......kinda like I'm running away from my problems. Fucking things are still there when I get back........but still :rofl:

    The no license thing is crazy to me too... I was counting down the days till I got mine. I was ready to go had already bought a cheap truck when I was 14 y/o. And it was stick - another foreign concept to these kids haha

    Yup makes no sense to me. Like I get it, cars are expensive so owning one as a mid highschool through college aged person can be tough BUT AT LEAST GET YOUR DRIVERS LICENSE. Every one of the student employees that dont have it because they come up with some excuse mentioned above I always tell them. At least get your license, you never know when you will be out with friends and the "DD" had too many to drink and you are the only sober one.

    But its really a sign of the times kids are lazy and lots of rules and regulations have made them that way. Where I grew up there was ~200 acres of land that we would ride dirtbikes on, it got built up but there is still ~80 acres still rideable, from 10yrs old till 18 all the kids in the neighborhood would be up there in one way shape or form just playing having a good time... the land is still there yet its hardly ever touched by a young soul these days (and its not like im SUPER old and this was a long time ago either.... im 34). First full sized 4 wheel vehicle I drove was up on that random land and was pops ole beater 1989 5 lug toyota pickup with a stick haha.

    Nice I love the old Toyota pickups. My first truck was a 1982 Chevy S-10. I learned to drive on my dad's '93 Silverado dually that was manual as well

    Agreed at least get the license it's so easy. Times change for sure, I think phones/screens and social media are the biggest distraction from getting outside.

    I am glad this next generation doesn’t want to drive. Makes driving a lot safer for the rest of us. It’s terrifying seeing young kids behind the wheel with their eyes glued to their phone.

    SERIOUSLY. Add in all the driving nannies of current cars, god forbid have to pay attention to driving down the road. People literally dont even look over their shoulder backing up and just rely on their backup cams.

    I don’t even think they look at their backup cameras. They just throw it in reverse and go! Watched a lady back out of her driveway and run right into her trash cans. She was driving a brand new BMW so you know it has a nice backup camera and collision sensors
