Good Afternoon wingers.
I have an 82 interstate that looks beautiful with all the fairings and the hondaline bags, but I have been looking at pics of naked Gl's and I think they look pretty sweet. I know there are a couple of advantages of going naked, better fuel economy, easier to handle at really low speeds. Are there anymore advantages to this?? I think I might just take front fairing off and have it half naked. Any tips or comments are highly appreciated especially from wingers that have gone naked or own a dressed and a naked.

I put a plexifairing windshield on my '82 GL along with hard bags and a trunk and loved it. The plexifairing windshield was the best windshield I have seen or used for keeping the wind off. The bike handled wonderfully set up like that. It was completely naked before.

My naked bike is a Triumph Speed Triple.

That's very naked in comparison to a 'Wing. But it has purpose.

I had a GL-1100 standard for a while, and that bike was a hoot and a half!! Losing the fairing and weight from the accessories really transforms the handling of the bike.

I don't think going naked improves the fuel economy at all, maybe even hurts it. I had 2 standards and an interstate, the latter got the best mileage.

Just buy yourself one of each and you won't have to ponder that question. Well that's how I solved that delima.
