Bike Names

Recommended Posts

I've been a good boy and done a quick search to see if I'd missed a thread on this and from my quick glance it would appear not :-)

ok, I've had a few cars over the years and they've all had names. Mitzy, Betsy, The Bitch etc etc. But despite having the bike for a while it has remained simply 'The Bike'. Until recently, when I called her Ebony - due to the fact she's gonna eventually be gloss and matt black.

So, What do you call yours? Or am I just one of those crazies?

:-D

It depends what she's doing at the time....

If she's horizontal, then anything goes, I even make up some new swear words.....

When she's going well, it's normally "that's my girl"

I did have a Varadero called Val..... and I named my TTR Tina, but I had to stop as both Val and Tina are also the names of my wifes friends.... and it was getting a bit too erm,,,, you know ..... "I'm off for a ride on Tina.." just didn't go well. Especially as I wouldn't, with any of her friends. :huh:

Oh yes, you may have noticed, all my bikes are female. :D

I don't call my triumph or the yammy by name. However, I do talk to both of them.

Maybe I could call my Triumph whitey-Mcwhite-white-blueline-face. Seems like far too many syllables though.

Yammy could be called Ol'Clacksy, but that's not really very flattering.

hope you dont do that to everything in your life lol

a bike is like a pet! you wash it , dry it, keep it in its own little home, feed it , take it to the mechanics or look after it when it gets sick, and all bikes have there own personality so its just natural that some people give them a name! whats so wrong with that? and anyway if you talk about engines to someone who hasnt got a clue it sounds sooo wrong anyway. lol B) "i need to grease up the crank shaft to slot the bearing into the hole" lmao or my sparks gone i was doing 50 then smoke started comming out then it splutterd and died on me.

I have to admit I do stroke mine and say things like "Come on, girl....." But I always have with cars or bikes.... doesn't feel right treating it like a lump of metal when you spend blood,sweat.... and yes, sometimes tears on them. (The wind gets in my eyes, ok?)

oh, and I admit I'm weird. I said 'Thank You' to a vending machine not long ago :-0
