I refer to one as the K and the other as the GS. I know not very original but I've never had a name for any of my cycles, motorcycles, cars, vans or aeroplanes.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Our family cars have usually been named but not my bikes. I also have referred to the K as The Beast but only casually. If I'm addressing the bike while riding it, I usually just say "Bitch". No idea why.

Depends on my mood and if anything has gone wrong with it.
If all is well I have muttered phrases to myself like like "come on my beauty".
Its not always the destination that counts its the ride, having a destination just stops you going round in circles.

Mine's called 'The Bike'. But I'm thinking of changing it.

I saw an FJR pass me in London with a home-made decal... 'THE PUNISHER' !

Not sure why it's called that, maybe he can't switch to the ESA comfort setting when the road gets bumpy - lol
