Why hide the engine? It's such a big part of the whole kickass-power-in-an-affordable-vehicle-attitude that bikes are all about to me. And when I play with kickarse power, things get bent and busted. I don't want to include fairings in that equation.
You'd better start another thread for that cause I could spend all day refuting that bollocks. Screw wind blast, and screw having to clean all bugs out of hard to get into areas. Naked bikes are only good for slow**** who don't ride much.
I want a hobby, not just a bike
