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.
