Do you name your bike(s)?

Does it have a gender? If you do give your ride a name, is it the same gender as yourself, or the opposite gender? Is it a mythical name, a character from your favorite movie, did your friend/loved one name him/her for you?

I'd love it if you'd reply with why/how/when and If you chose a name for your Baby.

I called my Triumph the Tiger or Bonnie, depending on how I had the engine configured. I called most of my Hondas the Honda. I call the Concours Connie, and I call the XS750F Yammie. I guess I don't name them at all, I also don't refer to them as females. Unless I'm cussing at them. :oops:

I bought a bike on EBay and the seller told me the bike's name was Lucky Linda. Guess his girlfriend's name was Linda. Anyway I see no reason to change it. Of course I don't refer to my bike as Lucky Linda or else my wife (Carol) might get Teed Off. Ha ha.

I'm a Renaissance Man and as such believe that all self propelled machinery has a soul, usually feminine in nature. Yes, I name all my bikes. And my Jeep. And my lawnmower.
