Did you name your bike?

Postby Michael Faircloth » Fri Aug 22, 2014 8:45 pm



Hi Guys,
Wondering if others have a name for their bike. I named my 1996 1500 "Gladys Goldwing".... mostly because it makes me glad when I ride. On the contrary, I named my Rolls Royce "Christine" ( from the Steven King book) because I knew it we out to kill me when I started working on it. :P

Mine is named "BnB". The reason for this was because I purchased it from Ronn Moss, (former) star of Bold and Beautiful. Now spouse wants to know who is the Bold, and who is the Beautiful? I will let you guess :lol:

I've called a few motorcycles a few names over the years, but haven't named them anything that stuck.
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

My last few bikes have all been BI*CH ( not Goldwings ), but it does not fit this one, so no name yet. . . .

I named my '96 SE "Grimace", the purple monster from McDonalds because it's, well, a purple monster. My '75 is named Ratwing due to the rats nest I found in the plenum when I trailered it home from PO. My '80 Interstate is named Ugly.

Have not really named this bike, but I did put a label on her. "Geezer Glide" seemed to fit, so I had a label printed up and put it on the back fender just under the license plate. I consider it more a description than a name.

I've owned 22 cars and bikes in my life, only one of them had a name: My four-cylinder 1979 Ford Mustang, which I called "farking piece of crap" (or words to that effect). :) Last time I saw it, it was burning on the side of the road. :)

That seems like an appropriate name. I had a sail boat that I called "a hole in the water in which I throw money" so I can understand.

My wife named ours Dirty Harry the Honda...Dirty harry for short, cause he is alway rough starting after he sits overnight. As a birthday/fathes day gift she had a set of vinyl lettering made to go on the trunk and it say dirty harry. Also the bike is now all black and since I am in law enforcement she got the lettering in blue and as a bonus it is reflective so it can be seen pretty well at night.

I just picked up an 1984 Aspencade, Midnight Blue. She is a high mileage ride, 98000+ My husband calls her my girlfriend. But her name is B3, from the George Hrab song 'B3' which stands for Brains, Body, Both. In B3 case its Big, Blue, Beautiful.

the red 1999 HD Electra-glide was called POS
And the newest member is a 1983 GL650I SilverWing Interstate named Little One because it look like a mini GL1100 Interstate.

When I first bought the bike I toyed with the idea of naming her "Flower" because the first part of the registration number is FLR; but I soon dropped the idea and until recently she has been un-named. However, following a spell of mechanical work inside the cavity where the carbs usually live I have started calling her "The Purple People Eater"....
