Name your bike
« on: January 22, 2020, 03:46:36 AM »
I'm pretty big on giving my favourite bikes names.

My MOST favourites were Kealy (an XS1) and Maxine (the 100th VMax to roll off the line). Those names really seemed to suit the character of those bikes.

Right now I'm wondering about possible names for my #1 XZ550, and also wondered whether anyone else likes to name their bikes and, if so, what those names are.

So, if you don't mind me asking, what is your bike's name?

But I've got my Vision.
His got him into strife,
Mine just takes me fishin'.

Hmm. Naming bikes. I do name my cars but haven't named my bikes. No particular reason. My kids however have named our old Kawasakis.

The blue 1978 KM100 is dubbed the Blue Spirit. The red G4TR is named Dragon of the West (both are Avatar: The Last Airbender references).

The first vehicles I named was a 1971 911S. Named after Mozart's wife's nickname, Stanzi.

So, a name for the XZ. I think once I ride it a bit more a name will come to me.

lolol
I've settled on Maxini. My VMax was Maxine, so a baby Maxine is a Tini Maxine or "Maxini" - for me. :-)
