This makes me want to name my bike....but I haven't come up w/any good ones.....
"the aero" is as close as I've come, & it's not sticking....but that's ok.
My car has a name (GG). And my old, old scooter has a name - even if I don't ride him anymore....(Harley).
Maybe it's because I'm always "shopping" for a different bike. I have LOVED my bike since the 1st time I sat on it, but I sitll want a big Gold Wing Trike....and that, someday, will have to be named, LOL

Nell,
I have to be honest, it was a surprise that we rode to the dealership.

It was not a surprise in that,,,,,we had looked at the bike for 2 weeks and I had
drooled over it, sat on it, drooled some more.....then dropped it. He knew the
surprise would be tht he figured out the financial end himself. ha

I had sat on it several times, he didn't just go get it....he knows how hard I am to
please on stuff so, the only thing he has bought without me being there, was a new
cover for my bike..................LOL.................
.....

I don't think I'd like my hubby to buy me a new bike. It's like buying a bra: it's all about fit. I prefer him cheering me on while I get my own bike. And not mentioning money, which is a downer. Besides, I know more about the money angle than he does.

I have a Scarlet and Black Softail Deluxe, and while I did name her, I
generally refer to her as the Softail.......

My first 883 was Red, hence "Red."

My 2nd bike, a 1200 Sportster was also Red, and just as I was getting
used to her, my husband went and traded her for the Softail, because
he wanted me to have a ride more suited to my problem back, so she
wasn't really around long enough to get a name....

My current bike is Scarlet. Before her I had Ruby, Angel, and Lucy.

Lucy got her name because she was red and I loved coming home to her so we could get out and play. "Lucy, I'm home!"

Angel got her name because she was purchased after Lucy and I were involved in an accident and I wanted/needed all the protection I could get! I even had 3 gremlin bells on her!

Ruby got her name because she was red with metal flake that reminded me of Dorothy's ruby slippers.

Scarlet is of course, Scarlet Red and my response to those that believed I was buying a bike that was too big for me was, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a da%^!"

I also name my cars with the current one being Gracie.

Because she (yes she) is the smallest in the garage and the newest member of the household (not in years). LOL.
Oh, and she's mine...

No, just refer to them by model name, the R and the RT. Previous bikes by complete model name (1100R, 1100RT or 1150RT). No genders.

Have you named your bike (or previous bikes)? If so, what is it called and how did it get its name? Is your bike male or female?
