I have a Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic, red-on-black. I just bought it a week ago while on Christmas break from work. Before I left work, I posted a color picture of a pretty red V-Star Classic up on my workbench, and wrote in big red letters, "Santa Baby..." (from the song.) Now, when I go back to work, I'll have that Christmas wish fulfilled!
I have been trying to think of a name, this is my first bike. Maybe Pegasus, after the mythical winged horse. He/she (can't decide yet) has Mustang seats and they have a little Pegasus figure stamped into the back of the seat-back. Pegasus was also my favorite mythical character when I was a child.
On the other hand, my BF suggested "Sweet Christmas" since it has, indeed, been a sweet Christmas, and she is
red, after all.
Names of my other vehicles:
Mercury Villager van - Wolfey (the namesake)
Ford Focus sedan - Zippy (cuz she is)
