Would you ride your bike naked?

After sitting for days looking at the choke and clutch cable, being too tight for the 2" rox risers I've installed, I've finally decided to have a professional get it right.

The place I'm thinking of taking it to is pretty damn close, and I'm thinking of just riding the bike there with out the panels on. That'd probably be fine right? Why put the panels back on when they are just going to take them off shortly after.

Dubcut -

The Gen2 bikes rely on the left side panel to hold the radiator secure.

Even though it's a short ride, I'd pop the left side plastic on just to hold the radiator. It's only two bolts and one screw.

Any of the others - go ahead and leave them off.

Hey man, been doing any good fishing? Me and my little girl have been terrorizing miniature bluegill.
