It's like going out of your way to find the hardest bike to turn "naked". A goldwing has always seemed so iconic for having all that extra stuff to me I guess it just seems like a waste to tear t all away when there's a dozen other bikes that could look way better as a "Nekkie" with a lot less work. Apr 28, I have bought a honda goldwing, and its a blast to ride, but a little heavy for me, and i figured instead of trading it in, or buying another bike, why dont i turn it into a "naked" goldwing, where i take off the front end, traveling packs and back touring pack.I was wondering if i would be able to do that now, and eventually replace the parts on it back to standard specs like it is now.
