Bike Conversions

I know this is crazy, but has anyone ever turned an F4 into a Brutale? I was reading a sport rider article about making an R1 into a naked and got inspired...

'05 FJR 1300
'05 F4S "Custom"

'04 Brutale
'08 Suzuki DR650
'74 RD350 Restoration Project

Do you really think that someone would shell out over $20K for a beautifully designed motorcycle and then tear it apart...

I ride mine without the fairings while I'm doing work or servicing on it.

This (historic town of richmond) was two weeks ago on the way to Port Arthur 90k's south east of Hobart.

Many guys that saw it thought it looked wicked or mean!!!

Is it possible and reasonable?

Brutale handlebars? No fairing? Different lights? Can it be done? Is it crazy?

Gazman, how much cooler does your F4 run when you took the fairings off? My buddy, who has a 1098 says his runs a lot cooler. He has been running it most of the summer here without the fairings. We call it the featherless Duck.
