I don't have a name for it so occasionally have to apologise or clarify whilst riding if I swear or curse someone, "sorry not you, the idiot over there".

I call mine The Bike, now many years ago I had a girlfriend with the same nickname but that's a whole different story which I won't go into  ;D

Maybe something is coming across your mind when you jump and ride it!  :o ;D

If it is running sweetly then I'm too busy to think of a name...

If it is having a hot-start hissy fit you'll have to ask Richard what I called it the last time it did it, he was the only one within earshot...

I must be down on the humanity spectrum. I have never named cars or bikes, they are all sexless 'its'.

A friend just found a name for mine this weekend: "Tangerine Extravaganza" (it's the lava orange K1300R model). I love the excessive number of syllables, just like the excessive torque and HP on the bike.

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!
