Naked bikes are just the best...

My old man's Suzuki M109r had the cooling fan shoot craps.
I spend 45 minutes taking all the plastic bullshit off (I was going slowly and being careful because I didn't want to break or crack anything).
Then it takes me all of 15 minutes to replace the fan, and refill the coolant.
Then I spend over an hour trying to puzzle piece all the plastic back together. If you don't put them on in the right order, then you're just gonna be taking them back off because they all have to fit together a specific way.

The whole time I was thinking of how much easier that job is on most naked bikes.

2007 Honda 919.
Used to be Red, now it's Green. Open for name suggestions.

Agreed. I freaking love naked bikes. Always spend the majority of the time taking off and putting on the plastics on my F4i whenever I do an oil change. I loved the ease of maintenance on my 919...now I miss it lol.

Wind protection is something that some like.

The great half/half is a bike like SV and FZ1.
