    Pull the engine
    Powder coat the frame

    Or you could just buy a GSA and these good suggestions will be standard. And you will get to ride 300+ miles per tank regardless of your speed. I use my GSA as a touring bike, as well as very light...

    The San Antonio police department has for years used trunk-less Wings. It's not my kind of bike, but I don't think they look all that bad either.
