Nope.

I used to own a '75 BMW 3.0si (sedan) that earned the name "DAMMIT!"

I guess I just don't feel that much connection to most things. Even my dogs respond to about 5 or 6 different names each depending on what kind of mood i'm in :)

I spend to much time on the bike now. I think if I named it, my wife would put an "end" to our relationship (me and the bike).

Maybe we could start a naming service here on the board. Start with me!

My wing is an '80. Its a 20 footer, meaning it looks good from 20 feet away. Any closer, and the flaws are more obvious...

Hmmm what should I call it?
Goldwing! OOOH Yah!

I've named cars and guitars before, but I've yet to name my bike (come on, I've only had it a couple weeks, this sort of thing takes time!)

Eventually though, when I find a good name. ;)
