It's okay to go around nekkid, but keep your headlight mounted to the RT bracket; http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=747394

Should you yearn for a naked bike, why not just get a bike that is naked in the first place?

Going to give my RT and RS a hug and a fondle........
This is how I feel about it, unless the fairing is seriously trashed.
The RT ranks among the best for weather protection of all motorcycles, and it makes them excellent all-weather rides.
I took the fairing off mine some years ago, and enjoyed the weight reduction until the first cold, rainy day.
It went back on shortly after.

I eventually compromised and found an old RS fairing upper section, which i put on for summer riding. Got the changeover process down to about 3hours of concentrated effort.

I ride my RS any time of the year and see no need for an RT. As you can probably tell, I'm not an RT kind of guy, the RS is the one that turns me on! It gives me all the protection I need.
