Great pics so far!


My current three rides:







Now that winter is over, I'm glad to have no fairings. Generally about December I start dreaming about wind protection...

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 agree with everything you said, except I need more than a moderately comfortable riding position, and am willing to give up some handling to get it.

Uh, no offense, but it sounds like you're in the wrong thread, Jerry.

Nice mix of bikes you have there. I like that cabin too.

They call it a naked, but that fairing always looked like a D-cup bra to me.



Still love the bike to death, and it's actually replaced my trusty, reliable and well-farkled Sprint ST as a touring bike too, just have to stop for fuel more often and plan routes a bit differently, but it's worth it because it's just so much more fun to ride, and actually more comfortable for everything but high speed sustained slabbing, which I simply avoid doing.

I used to own a KZ650 standard and loved it. It was way more comfortable than what people are calling standards these days. It had pegs that required a slight rearward knee bend, but were not to high, and bars that required a slight forward lean, but not much. It had no bodywork, and could be ridden either aggressively or sedately. It had a big wide long comfortable seat that gave you room to move around.

I bother with it because a 140mph windblast sucks at the track when there is nothing be the headlights to direct wind.

.......on the street I agree fairings make doing anything a pain in the ass.

Yep.

I'll have to post a picture of mine. It's not that nice, but I like it.

I know I have linked this image before, but I really like the angle and weather has been too weird to get any better ones since:



it really lets the engine "hang out" from this perspective

Fair enough, Jerry. Really, the thread title is a little confusing I think. I think of a naked as something more modern (generally an alloy frame, rational, but still sporty ergos, maybe FI engine), and standard as something more traditional, like a KZ650. But not a cruiser -- that's a whole different style in my opinion what with the extremely low seat, high bars and generally feet-forward controls.

My 2011 FZ8, compared to my old R6s, this thing is a breeze to work on and more adventure friendly than ever. Love this bike so far.

Was checking out a 2011 FZ8 at the dealer in Rapid City this week. Very cool bike -- I was tempted, but am considering that new CB1100, so talked myself out of it.

Yep, that's probably true. Kind of a shame how Suzuki seems to have lost the plot with nakeds. I always liked that SV.
