Do you have a name for your bike ? ?

I have noticed lately the amount of names that people give to there bikes, as most of us it's always 'SHE was awesome today', 'I took HER round this corner today low and fast, and SHE stuck to the road like glue'.

So in that I have to fess up that I do say (telepathically of course) 'Come on Baby', which is about it.

But what do you call your bike, and what do you say to it ?, especially, for example when you get a corner REALLY wrong and are running dangerously wide

Do, or do not, there is no try !

Honda already named the bike, that's enough for me.

Now I'm intrigued.

I call mine Jack - from Jack-jack in the movie The Incredibles. Jack-jack is the baby which can turn into fire and something very heavy.

Re: Do you have a name for your bike ? ?

The 600RR is the "black bastard." I haven't come up with a name for the 1000 yet, I had some choice names that almost stuck but I won't post them as I don't feel like getting banned. Now that I have the kinks worked out of it and it has become my primary ride it will probably get labeled something different.
