Only the Ducati..

Bice- pronounced 'beechay', means 'voyager through life'. I had been calling her my new Italian mistress and figured a name was in order. So some days I go ride the Italian mistress, some days I just go flog the b!tch.

Vietnamese Honda Win 110cc: Marilyn.

So names because it was an unreliable hard to handle (after I rode into a buffalo hole at night and bent the frame and forks) and generally fairly useless, but still worth it.

The ugliest looking rat bike when I first saw it, now it's more... civilized...

PS: Yes, that is the Vatican, no, I wasn't having my bike blessed, I was there to scare all the nuns away !!!

My bike got its name by all the kids that I pass around town
It never fails when your on a pearl solar yellow and jet black klr650 and pull up at a light and the kids in the car next to u hang out the window and ask you if that's bumble bee.
No its not a Camero but what ever makes the kids happy so I turn to them and say yes and pull a wheelie threw light. Anything to put a smile on a kids face
So the name bumble bee stuck and all I need now are a couple 3d Autobot decals to put on it
