My girlfriend refers to her KL250SF as "Thumper". Therefore she's started calling my Vstrom 1000 Bambi. 'Cos Bambi is Thumper's friend.

My AX-1 is known as "You Bitch" or "Good Bitch" depending on the day.

The KTM EXC was named by my wife "Moto Skuit, skuit" - "crazy bike" in English.

The DR is "Durr"

Unusual for me to use those names with other people.

This isn't all of them- some of them didn't stick around long enough or have enough personality to get named.

'82 Virago 920: El Diablo (technically La Diabla is probably more correct? The bike was evil and female.)
'93 Seca II: Reba
'85 FJ1100: Maverick (Kept writing checks I couldn't cash)
'00 KLR650: BGDPB (Big Green Dual Purpose Bike)
'01 Aprilia Falco: Bettie (Page)
'04 FJR1300: Bongo (From Matt Groening's Life in Hell comic strip, after a [former] girlfriend near sideswiped me and took off one mirror.)
'83 Maxim 550: Zippy
'06 DRZ400SM: Bart (Simpson- "IDidn'tDoItNobodySawMeDoItYouCan'tProveAnything")
'12 Tiger800XC: The new hotness hasn't told me it's name yet.

There's an '89 VTR250 that may be Crockett; I've never really ridden it.

Wife's bikes:
'98 Seca II: Pinky. (It was black... ?)
'97 VFR750: Mae West (She thought it was top heavy)
'06 Speed Four: Birdie

Her (white) '06 Toyota Yaris is "The Egg"; the '97 Camry with 240k miles that preceded it was the POSie.

My daily driver is named: The GS

My fun fast bike is called: The K

Sorry. My dog and my three turtles have names. The machines, as much as I love them, do not.

This is Sophia. The name sounded italian and like a redhead.


This is Klaudia, since she's a k-bike


My 1150GS is called T.W. for the Tuetonic Warthog. There's just no way it looks pretty.

This is Fugly (cause it was):



This is Cruella (same grey color and angular looks as Cruella Deville, and it was also a pretty cruel mistress):



This is Blossom (think Orange Blossom Special, it pulls like a freight train):



I name my trucks and cars as well. My truck is "Pepe", the Caddy is "Daisy".


Not naming a vehicle is like not naming your pet, they are a member of the family and should be addressed properly.

Not really into naming stuff, but I usually refer to my bikes as that 'piece pile over there' or 'oil leakin sob' or terms of endearment along those lines. My Italian stuff- now thats a different story. I had a two names for my Vespa P200. One was the name of my Italian girlfriend I had when I was in Italy in 1977. I kept that name to myself. My 2001 Moto Guzzi Jackal - what else but Goozfraba.

I think it's a universal fit one...maybe made by MRA? It *might* be this one. http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...tview/934/343/ Came with the bike, though, so don't know for sure off the top of my head. Send me a PM and I'll take a look at her bike and let you know for sure tomorrow.
