Naked/Standard Bikes. What else do you need?

Two wheels, a frame, engine, controls (excluding clip-ons), and a moderately comfortable riding position. Why bother with fairings or torturing yourself in the hunched position?

Calling all: FZ's, CB's, GS's, KZ's, XS's (getting old school ), Speed Triples, Monsters, those other Italian bikes, I guess the XR by H-D?, etc.

If you don't need to remove a hunk plastic to get to the engine, let's see 'em! Just another thread to post awesome bikes and brag who's is the sexiest.

I've got a nice 2003 Honda CB750, but what else I need, several months of the year, is some weather protection. I have become such a cold weather weakling that I've even been looking at the BMW C 650 GT (heated grips, heated seat, electronically controlled windshield).

B-E-A-utiful! I was hard pressed between the FZ8 and this sexy beast a year ago. I just couldn't justify spending $3000 more for the CB1000R so I walked out with the FZ8. I still love the FZ8 but this one was winking at me hardcore while I struggled making a decision. She still calls for me and so does her hot sister, the new CB1100.

So far I'm loving the Ol' Hondas as I'm a SOHC lover.

The original modern naked? Has clip-ons, but they're not down by your knees...

Nice Magna, HondaFanatic. Not sure it qualifies as a Naked though. I think that would be categorized as more of a power cruiser.

Yeah, you're right. My controls are about 3 inches too far up to be considered a standard. But she is a naked...and I just love posting pictures of her

My trusty scruffy M900 Monster. I agree, nothing else is needed (unless you want to carry a passenger very far).
