    Does anyone else name their bikes?

    Surely I can't be the only one who names their bikes. I'm curious, if you did what are the names you chose for a few of your rides? Do you guys/girls consider there to be rules for naming your bike (i.e., girls names only...unless it's a German bike)? Let me know, I'm struggling to come up with a name for the new CB, and the only thing that's been suggested was "Scumblebee", I'm guessing due to the hooliganistic styling of the bike, or my unsavory character. One or the other...

    Welcome to the forum.
    I just call mine bike. Never really was big on naming my rides.
    Now my daughter on the other hand does. Jeremy was one and i talked her
    Into Christine for another.
    But to each his own.
    Have you decided yet?

    Sure. All of my bikes have had names.

    "The CB"
    "The CX"
    "The YZ"
    "The SFV"
    "The CRF"
    "The XR"
    etc...


    No, I've never had the urge to name an inanimate object.
