So I recently had a discussion with a buddy about naming bikes. I have been in the superstitious habit of giving all of mine well thought out (or so I think) names once I have had them for a while and give them enough use. Is anyone as neurotic about picking the 'right' name for their bikes? What have I named my bikes? I'm glad you asked... In order of ownership: 1992 Yamaha XJ600 Seca II Cricket - she chirped like one when I was on the brakes. 2003 Yamaha R6 (Sliver/Black) Alana - was my first R6 that I lusted after (silver and black) named after the really subdued beautiful girl in my HS 2000 Yamaha R6 Race Bike Samara - named after the girl in the ring cause the bike kept trying to kill me 1984 Honda XR250 pit bike Daisy Duke - Speaks for itself 2006 Yamaha R6 Race Bike Persephone - was a brand new off the floor raven R6 before i tracked her. Reference to the greek mythology story cause of her 'dark' side Jezebel - 2002 Yamaha R6 Race Bike She got around. 5 friends had her before I did. Amelia - 2006 BMW R1200GS My first (and dream) adventure bike. Who else to name her after that would be more fitting than one of the most adventurous women in history?
