Every time i buy a bike/car, part of the fun for me is thinking of what to call it. My latest bike, a red/black GSXR1000 is called Joanie and part of the fun is being able to tell people that i spent the whole weekend riding Joanie. Or that i had to give Joanie a good wash because she’s a dirty girl.
So, anyone else on here name their steeds? Or do ya all think i’m crazy. :w00t:
I owned a light metallic green ford Focus that was called…are you ready for it…“Fish Puke”. Now just to be clear, that was a name my missus chose. Her reason? Well, she said that if a fish was swimming aorund the ocean and it did not feel to good, and then had to throw up…then the colour of that puke would be the same as the colour of out car.
Hurrah for other peeps that name their cars/motorbikes!!!
My R6, lovely bike. Looked amazing, spent 100’s on it and many miles but never got to the point of naming it. I had a few issues with it over the few years of owning it and had fallen out of love with it - hence the sale!
Now KaTie (my new to me, KTM 625smc) on the other hand…cor…WHAT A BIKE!!! may not look the business or be everyones idea of a good bike but feck me…its a riders bike! none of that relaxing behind a Busa screen or relying on a Blades ‘userfreindlyness’ This bike really rides well and already has a personality. I looka t her and want to ride her. Plus i also get the saddistic FB posts: “cant wait to ride KaTie later!” She earnt her stripes on the BCR already!!! Booooom!!!
Got the SM bug - Cant wait to get a full-on EXC KTM.
It’s a passion, it’s freedom, it’s pure joy. It’s the excitement of deciding what bike to buy next, and then the hours spent searching for the perfect one. It’s spending way too much money on it and all the paraphernalia that goes along with motorcycling. It’s popping your first wheelie and getting your knee down on that local round about. It’s meeting other like-minded people who would help you out at a moments notice even if they don’t know you that well.
