Blondie!

..bought a 1200gs adventure last year.
fell over several times getting used to the extreme seat height.

So, the bike's name is Blondie....she goes down easier than
a Frisian whore...

My first bike was a 1999 Honda Xr400. My 2nd and concurrent bike was a 1985 Honda vf700s.

So calling them "The old one", "The new one", "The honda" didn't work at all. Calling them "the XR" and "the VF" or "the sabre" didn't work for people who had no idea what these bikes were. Calling them "The dirt bike" or "the street bike", well, I blurred those lines quite often.

So I named them normal girl names that aren't as common in my generation. Now that you've read that, I'm not even going to list them.

My cats, however, are Pumpkin and Ignats. They do come when they're called. Also, pumpkin sings a sad meow when we're in the kitchen and I call her. They are crowding me as we speak.

I tend to call them "The Aprilia" and "The Suzuki" these days.

I named the Aprila Dorsoduro "Furio", but never call it that because nobody knows what the hell I'm talking about. My wife has not named the Suzuki yet, and since its her's that is her call.

I don't know if it's ghey, but...

The CBR is Captain America! (really captain Thailand, but don't tell my 13YO). The F has a written/proper name - kleine pfauin - and an objective/locative name - the yellow bike - but no vocative name. In fact, I think it is the only motorized thing I own without a specific vocative name. Hmmm. Weird.

I am what people call me........ and that varies a bit from place to place.

I am variously known as Michael (by my family), Mick, Mike, Sonny, Jim, and there have been a few others over the years. To those has been added the title, -sensei (teacher, in Japan; thus Mick-sensei) and Ajarn (also teacher, here in Thailand).

At present, here in Phuket I am Ajarn Michael, Mick or Mike, depending on who is addressing me.

I'm not fussy. People can call me anything, as long as it is not late for dinner.

Honestly, never expected any replies to this thread....bored and isolated from the bike...bad combo. Funny stuff.

Keep it coming.

Uh, let's see.

Son's Ducati ss is "the Ducati"

My DP Suzuki is "the Suzuki"

My '92 BMW K100RS is "the BMW"


It says it right there on their gas tanks. Keeps the confusion to a minimum
