The Kawasaki KLE we named Ripley, for the Sigourney Weaver character in Alien: She's a tough little bitch who never lets you down.

The Supertenere we named Tom, for Tom Ripley, ie the Talented Mr Ripley. Cause he's a mean bitch.

SR500, KLX, and ZeFAR... the latter being the pronunciation some guy used when talking about my bike when we were at a flat track race. I guess it's kind of the "redneck" version of Zephyr.

I just never quite gave my bikes credit for having any sort of living traits, although sometimes it might seem that way. Just never suited me to literally name them... although I have been known to call them some obscene named when they do seem to take on those traits, like not starting or having a flat tire, or something isn't working right on them.

After 42 bikes or so, I don't name them. But I referred to my Sportster, as, the piece of shit, because it was a piece of shit. Nothing wrong with it. Just had shitty brakes, was slower than shit, didn't turn well at all, and was, in general, a piece of shit.
