Is it practical to remove the fairings from a typical 250 street bike? As a new rider, I know I'm going to drop my first bike and I know that typical fairings crack and scratch very easily, potentially reducing future re-sell value. Personally, I'd prefer to buy a naked bike to avoid this issue. But 2nd hand naked bikes seem to be more expensive. So is it possible to buy a standard street bike, and remove the fairings while I get my riding experience? Or will it look stupid? Or will the handling be shot?
