NO! Names for motorcycles are just plain idiotic!

I also dont have a pet name for mine, but I dont consider it idiotic if someone does. Someone could make a sound argument that half of what we to these heavy old bikes is idiotic, but we do it anyway.

:lol: Indeed... I would probably agree with you there.

Of course wasting the hours that it took to morph a CRF rear fender on my bike certainly rises to a similar level of silliness :bonk:

It's never called anything nice if it's not working properly,,If it's working it's simply "bike"

My eight year old girl named both the thumpers at my house.

The 09 XR650L that I ride is called "Bull", she says because it is like sitting on a bull's back when she rides two-up with me. I am not sure if that is a commentary on my riding or not...

The wife has a 06 S40 Boulevard cruiser, that my daughter calls "Periwinkle" , she says that it is periwinkle blue and a nice friendly motorcycle.

I guess I can live with those, my folks when I was growing up called all of my motorcycles "that stinking Honda" regardless whether it was actually a Honda product or not.

cheers

I call mine "The XR." I call my truck "the truck." I refer to two of my other cars by the model year or trim level because they are the same chassis model. I use nicknames to make fun of other peoples' vehicles. :bonk:

It was funny when they weren't right.
