WHAT'S IN A NAME

Postby roadwanderer2 » Fri May 13, 2016 5:00 pm



for all you guys that have or getting new wings, what would you name your new bike? your ride does say something about you, why not give your bike a name that suits her.

think of a name and tell us why you picked it for your bike.

My wife named mine Esmirelda.

It reminds her of a lady by that name that she worked with. She said (this isn't politically correct) They are both big and black.

Yaaaa, consider this a REFRESHER.
SO not to let this go to waste,... IF i may step on some toes (jokingly of course)

What were some of the ODDEST or WEIRDEST name[s]
you heard a motorcycle called?

. . . may as well throw in cages and trucks too.

As we were kids once, we had this game of counting Volkswagen Beatles. We would punch the others arm when we seen one and yell out "PUNCH-BUGGY 26", etc., etc..
I once I seen one with a front end damage and yelled out "PUG-BUGGY 1". That name stuck but we renamed that game PUG-BUGGY since it's normal look was that of a Pug Puppy.
YA-ya, not funny now but as little kinds... ;)
