Thanks
my understanding of "naked" means no fairing or windshield of any kind, and no bags of any kind. Think Triumph Speed Triple, Yamaha FZ8, Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom, etc.

But I am an old fart and now a days it seems to mean any bike without a large permanently mounted fairing and bags. Your Buell would qualify under this interpretation.

I don't know man, I'm 44 and have been a licenced rider since 1983 and that almost qualifies me as an old fart, well at least to the younger crowd, but anyway... We always though of bikes that had what we used to call a bikini fairing were still naked bikes and I believe my 2004 Z1000 falls into that category as would any of the ZRX1200 bikes or anything similar. Its just a fancied up headlight cover and the windshield offers little to no protection.

^^^^^ What he said. If ya think those kind of little bikini fairings shield much if any wind spend a 600 mile day at 80 mph+ holding on to one

My former '04 Z1K the last day I rode her was 400 miles round trip to a job site and back in a 25 mph cross wind. Miss the hell out of that one, should have sold the ZRX instead

Well, since I started this thread with a pic of my '04 Zed, I'd say you betcha!

You know, I love the naked style bikes, but every time I see a pic of the 1st gen Zed Thou, I drool. These bikes are just so damn sexy!

TU brothers

Tu brothers unite.


The more I ride it, the more I want to ride it.
Want to try a windshield but it's still fun the way it is.

I don't think you could get much naked-er





When it was brand new. Oh that was like a couple of months ago and the mileage is racking past 4,000.
