I had to jump in on this one. I have been through a few name ideas over the last six months. This bike came to me with the name "White Dog," but I couldn't get used to that. I tried "Polly" for a while - taken from St. Pauli Girl because of those jugs, but decided that really wasn't me. Right now I think I have settled on "Ruth" Festus' mule from Gunsmoke. She is sure footed in the mountains, and gets just about anywhere, just not real fast.

I had a friend back in the 70's with a 62 Plymouth Valiant in powder blue, named The Blue Grunt. So, if I ever named my S3, I'd probably name it that, because that was one tough slant six.

Couldn't help but name him Frank, Jr. Frank for the F in F800 and Jr. because he's light and agile!

Haven't named it yet, but with the black wheels, knobbies, pannier racks and all the other stuff hanging off my neighbors call it "Mad Max". Not sure it's going to stick with me but for now ok...

I have "the big KTM" and "the small KTM." On occasion when the 990 is all loaded with travel gear I call it "the donkey."
