Willing to trade basically swap my 16 Blue F plastic for a naked. Show me what you got or pm me if interested.

I'm sorry, but I don't get the naked thing. For a mere 16 pound weight penalty you get a nose that splits the wind and a screen that keeps it off your chest with the F model. Maybe if I only rode in cities or from bar to bar or slow the naked would be fine.

I'm not saying that the naked is not a fine looking bike, but that the faired suits my riding better IMHO.

By the way I am only posting this because it's been raining for four straight days......flooded roads, etc. and I am bored as s**t.

LEAVE, I guess is should have said more specifically that I don't get the naked thing with respect to the GSXS 1000 where you can have the exact same bike in a naked or a faired version then no question I will go for the faired version every time. Hey I grew up riding nakeds (ie "motorcycles") too. And I like them. My other bike is a Diavel and that's naked (even though you cant see the engine too much).

But for getting out on a highway and ROLLING give me some wind-related comfort.

Sometimes change is good even if it is difficult for us to do.

Still raining here.

I just purchased a faired 2017 Yamaha FJR1300, and my 08 Hayabusa. I have to get something different, but its all good will be picking up 18 gsx-s1k. Happy just the same.
