Is it normal to name your ride?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by KimViv, Nov 29, 2015.

  1. My recent new bike purchase prompted a thought when I'd just arrived home and the partner jumped on the back and promptly burnt a very large round hole in her right calf, causing an impromptu trip to the doctor for second degree burns. Ouch!
    As a result my new ride has a name "Blister"
    So, does everyone name their rides?

    Puppy (so called because it just followed me home one day)

    So I guess .... Yes it is.

    One bike I had was called "pooh" it used to cut out and misfire all the time (new bike) but by god it handled. So because it was a bit of a pile of sh*t but stuck to the road like sh*t to a blanket, it got nicknamed pooh.

  6. It is absolutely normal to have names for our rides.

    I think some of us find it normal to talk to the bikes as well.

    What may not be normal is when some of us think that the bikes talk back. :D

  7. I used to think of the Triumph as the 'crumpet-burner.' Either that, or 'sexy' ;)

    She is Japanese, hot and tasty, hard to handle and an acquired taste
    Oh and green colored ;) (I always overthink every decision in my life!)
    Sometimes she gets called the minja or the whinja as well.

  14. Mine's called a variety of names - "Start you fuckin' bastard" is one.

    It's getting tired, and needs money spent on it. But it's not gonna get it... I'll just continue cursing at the bloody thing until it dies.
