Question Sex!

Got you attenjtion now did I?
Whey do you refer to your bikes as her, as in female?
Bots and ships, yes but that goes back to ancient times.
Why do you give you bike a name, it's a dead object and won't come if you call it's name!

Good question never really referred to my 950 with any name (Katie some times but only when speaking with other english speaking people for some reason), simply called "her" 950 when using the native language.

But have nicknamed my new 990R that is kitted with blue plastic from a -06 S model.

I present:

The Blue Whale

I never refer to my bike as "her". I don't want to fuck the thing and sure as hell don't need it to be as finicky and unreliable as a woman.

My bike, only ever referred to as "the Beast", is never referred to as he or she, and it is far from DEAD!!!

Named mine Astrid, always refer to bikes as her.
To add even more confusion to the issue "Das Motorrad" is gender neutral

This post gave me a chuckle since I read the one below in another thread only a couple of minutes earlier (posted by an 1190 rider).

"He cleared the code and the bike started right up. He also told me that he was told by KTM that the bike is "finicky" so behavior like this is expected. Seriously?"
