I refer to mine, if ever, as my "little motorcycle." I have to avoid putting on a very bad Gruber accent, but that's the reference I assume nobody ever gets!

Klapp !!!

After a good when all is running well it's "a beauty"

After a bad ride if things have not gone well with the bike "useless bundle of crap"

Other than it just a tool to use.
Its not always the destination that counts its the ride, having a destination just stops you going round in circles.

I presume  that the 'Trigger's Broom' sketch in Only Fools and Horses was an original zinger from the show's writer, John Sullivan. Turns out it was already a legend when Plutarch wrote about it, not as a clever joke, but as a thought experiment involving a paradox.
Embrace the wind.
