Blue Pig.

No names for any other bikes in the fleet.
Excellent, our country is now run by folks that would allow you to smoke pot in Washington State, but not buy a Big-Gulp in New York.

Yep I name my vehicles (cars too) as well.

Ninja 250: Niki (good dirty girl name, and this bike is the one that usually gets dirty and abused )
VFR 750: LeAnn (A sexy name, I think, for a lustful sounding machine with classic curves)
Miata: Mia (easy but it works)
500 Abarth: Eva (the headlights remind me of Eve from Wall-E. Plus it's cute but can be mean)
Xterra: Kai (wife's car, her name, I think it works. Her old Land Rover was Naya)

My bike is "The Mighty KLR" because it seems to be indestructible.

My '79 Austin Mini 850 is "Cecil", named after the tortoise in the Bugs Bunny Cartoons. 37hp but faster than you'd suspect.

'65 F100 pickup is simply "Big Red", because it's both big and red.

Haven't really named my BMW race car yet, but it needs some kind of feminine slut name because she likes to be beat on mercilessly and asks for more.

Name that beemer bangher cause you love to !!!!!!!!!!

Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

Zorak the Dakar - b/c he looks like a praying mantis and is a bit of an ass to me (and is Episcopalian).

I usually just call it "The Shadow", but sometimes it's "The Yellow Peril".

I have a TLA it is just FFS when it seems difficult to handle. In fact the same TLA has worked as a name for all bikes in all conditions when action is required. ‘Hi-Yo, Silver!’ HYS just does not have the same ring as FFS.

'The beautiful woman has come'.

That and she is considered "other worldly" with a mis-shaped head..Weird like the bike Similar profiles...

At least for the purposes of this thread....

If a physical fact can produce a psychological state, a psychological state can produce a physical fact... The whole of creation is asleep within the deep of man and is awakened to objective existence by his subconscious assumptions.
