Yep - I like my naked bikes - well naked!

Actually I'd like to lower the instruments so the view was even narlier!

I love the way the bike looks this way as well, but man after about a week I had to put that windscreen back on. It looks ugly as hell but it drastically cuts the wind down so I'm not hanging on for dear life at anything above 60/65mph. I don't know how you guys do it without screens.

A nice set of low bars that has you leaning over a bit with the wind force countering the upper body weight.
Real hanging on does not begin until about 80 mph - unless there is a bad head wind.
Hours at 60/65 is a piece of cake.
Slimmer cut jackets help.
The neck still takes the gaff though, always fighting the wind on the helmet.

I did notice today that it takes me a bit longer to reach 100 than it did with the screen on; actually is amazing how much differnce that little piece of plastic makes... still haven't put it back on, though.

What can I say, cars are better topless, bikes are better naked.
