Naming/nicknameing a bike

Recommended Posts

So I just picked up a new bike and I am wondering if I am the only person who names/wants to name their bike. Is it weird? Do you do it? What is her/ it's name?

I'm thinking of naming my street bike "the coffin"

We did this before. I only call my bike names when I crash and/or break something.

If I find I'm talking to a guy who has given his bike a name I immediately cover up my crotch area. Because he is probably interested.

My girlfriend manages to give all my vehicles names and she commits to them. Eventually I end up referring them by said nicknames.

I had a Saturn that was green and had a "Buzz Lightyear" look-a-like scent thing. Buzz just stuck to the car.

If it were my choice, my vehicles would be called whatever color they are followed by "machine." My first street bike was "Red Machine" for a while.

My XR600R had a nickname.

 

My friend had an old F250 that burned more oil than gas* that had "Built Ford Tough" hand painted on the tailgate.  Everybody called his truck "Old Tough."  Kept a gallon of oil behind the headlight and replaced it every trip.

When my 600 started burning and leaking oil, I kept a quart of it wedged behind my headlight, and we called it "Little Tough"

 

No nicknames for anything else though.

 

*It was a 7.3L diesel, so it didn't burn any gas.  But it did burn a lot of oil.
