Does your bike have a name?

In some older times, when weapons were more commonly part of daily dress, it was not uncommon to give a name to a particularly fine one. This seems to have crossed through a variety of cultures; Norse (Thor's hammer), Japanese (Grass Cutter, Oil Seller) Tolkien's literature (Sting, Glamdering, Troll's Bane?), etc.

Although this might be a personal thing, do any of you have a name for a special bike? I feel one coming for my 6R, but I have not yet found it.

To me... it is as light and fast as the wind and as dependable as the rising sun. With it, my legs stretch to the mountains. It's ability is as deep as the sea and there is nothing I have asked that it has not instantly given. It warms my soul like a fire in the depth of winter. Also like the sea, or the tail of the tiger, it could turn on me in a careless moment and I would be gone. It can let me soar, or erase me from the earth.

Wind, sun, sea, fire, long legs, a tiger's tail.... and yellow.

i named my 400 after the white zombie song "black sunshine."

so the yellow gsx-r became "sunshine."

The SV is named Shiva. The pocketbike is Little Monster.

Isn't Shiva a Hindu diety? Any relation?

Yep! Shiva is the Hindu goddess that requires total devotion and blood sacrifices. My bike is quite similar.

Cool Names give it character

So far I have had

Suzi Suzuki (GS550ES)
Katrina Katana ('89 Katana 750)

Now I am with Holly Honda.

I use white out and write the name on the inside of the fairing. Call me crazy
