I used to train sport horses, but now I have a bike and she's my city pony. Her named Trigger.

Sport horses... cross country jumpers (3-day eventing), show jumpers, foxhunters.

Ahh, okay. I kinda thought most horses are sporty horses, except for the ones that skid wood, pull plows, wagons, that sort of thing--and that's pretty rare nowadays.

I personally like the name "Black Mary" , a reference to the book "The Secret Life of Bees".

I named mine Ruby, she's red and my BirthStone is Ruby.

^I really expected you to say "Scarlet!" But the combination of Ruby & Scarlet has a definite charm. 8)

Oh, and um, my new bike's name is not very motorcycle culture-like. It's Blossom. I can't help it, that's her name! Came to me on the test ride. I've tried to change it, but it seems to suit her. I think it is because of that bloomin' red gas tank & cowling, and because she's going to help me blossom as a rider. At least, I hope she does.

LADIES - Have you named your bike?

#69 Unread post by Tightjeansincali » Thu May 21, 2009 12:02 pm

Hello everyone. I finally got my bike. 20 years later than I wanted. I have a 1996 ZX6R. It's green and Alpine white with white seats (looks MUCH better than black). I don't have a name for it yet. One of my friends suggested "Mistress". Nothing comes to mind. She's bright, she's LOUD and she's MINE!!

Hubby has a 1984 Venture Royale we call "The Starship Enterprise". LMAOOOOOOOOOO

I named mine Rusty. Rusty Racer. Or Racer Rusty. Or Rusty the Racer. You get the point. :-)

She was a little on the neglected side when I picked her up.

My husband actually named the ZR7S, a sport standard. He had been used to riding a cruiser, and was not used to a sportbike-type tank. He was riding home one day, hit a pothole, and thus hurt the Jewels...thus, the bike was christened "Crusher" :lol: When I got the Ninja, I just couldn't resist, and named it "Nutcracker"! :lol:

LOL, catnip.

I got my HD sporty just before my ex and I separated. The guys I worked with teased me after the separation. What are you going to do now the Jeff is gone? I casually told them I didn't need a man: I had my vibrating Sven, who has plenty of thrust behind his 4 stroke engine and could go all night if I wanted. :motorcyclelove: I cryed when we parted, Sven and I that is.

My Honda was christened Matilda, she was "hardly a Harley", and then for one of my milestone birthdays I purchased my dream bike. She is going to give me the "edge" needed to attract second glances from the younger crowd. I named her Sylvee, The Silver Cougar.

I loved reading the names of everybody's bikes. My GV 250 has a sweet little hummmmm--not loud at all and I laughingly likened it once to the buzz of a giant hummingbird. So, it's a little bike with a big name---the Blue Hummingbird.

Names for bikes

#75 Unread post by Sonshine0311 » Mon Aug 31, 2009 3:38 pm

I didn't even think about naming my bike until I was at the AMA Conference 2 weeks ago. My current bike is a Kawasaki Vulcan 500 and is red. I waited, as told, until her name came to me. MY name also is not very bikesh but I am not worried about that. Her name is Miss Kitty. I have 2 Cat decals on the windshield . Just seemed to fit her! And she got me acrossed the country and back with NO problems! :-)

When I got my Honda CG25 I was learning to ride in Ireland. The roads are terrible, 2 many pensioners, and you are basically invisible to everyone. Terrifying experience and my bike became "Effie" as in "Eff it" which I had to say frequently! lol.
Hiya. Ex Irish Road and International Racer. Looking for help with a trip to Spain (accom, breakdowns, repairs, etc?). Need help with bike repairs? No question too silly.

I haven't offically named my bike yet. But I have a few ideas. I have a 2001 Buell Blast 500. It had been custom painted with red hot flames when I got it. I am open for suggestions.

I would like to post a photo of it but I have not figured it out yet.

First you need to upload the picture to a web hosting site like tinypic.com or Photobucket. When you upload the picture the site will give you a url that looks like http://i25.tinypic.com/23jk45i.jpg . Next you surround the url with the image tags so it looks like

Code: Select all

[IMG]http://i25.tinypic.com/23jk45i.jpg[/IMG]
After you hit submit the picture will show up.

Thanks for the tinypic web site :D . I was finally able to get the picture loaded..

Now I need some ideas for a name for it. You can see by the photo that it has a custom paint job (came that way) I love the way it looks. I got the bike inspected yesterday. Someone with another bike come over and commented on the its looks.

It is a really 8) looking bike.

Thanks in advance for suggestions.
