This likely won't help you:

But I'd say if they did it, a welder should be able to get some racks done where you can mount your Trax cases.

It is not a Street Tripple but here is the evolution of my naked bike into a sport tourer that I use to commute, tour, ride and loaf upon.

When purchased


After adding a wind screen, Renntec rear rack, top case and soft saddle bags.


Lastest version with factory GIVI/Kawasaki wing rack 36L side cases, the same cheapy top case and a Nuvi 500 GPS with a Ram mount.


If I ever get around to mounting handguards and a set of grip heaters my naked bike will have made a pretty decent middle weight sport tourer. I can strip the bags off and still have a lot of fun on my naked bike or pack up for a long trip.

Last bike I had, I spent about $500 to set it up with a fairing, took one ride with it (Seattle-Oakland-Seattle via I5 and 101), and decided I prefer touring naked.

My Ulysses is a great touring machine, and it pretty much just has a mini fly screen. I'm considering taking it off, too, and rolling with the bomber look on the front end. First long ride of the year, I get a little neck sore on the first day, but that's about all the naked-related fatigue I can think of.

i usually buy naked bikes and why could you not tour on them? i have a XT660X (supermoto version i think usa just got XT660R?) and have done long rides on it. only annoying thing is wind blast on freeway but that is no issue if you cruise at 70mph instead of 80-90+ like you would on a faired bike. if your not on freeway or big wide open freeway-like roads then wind blast isnt a problem. or maybe doesnt bother me since i had nakeds for years before i ever tried faired? as for rain, its shit on any bike. just get the rain suit on.

I had a Ulysses and found it wasn't very good at highway speed. The small windshield pretty much funneled the wind right into my chest, just under my helmet. I tried it once without the fairing and found it was better, but looked like s#!t!! My Ducati Streetfighter is actually better.

For years I toured on a bike with soft saddle bags and an tank bag. But I always had a small screen.
