    Ya know... that's funny. I have named just about everything in my life from my Jeep (aka: Jeep With No Name) to my tools... but aside from the home appliances and various house plants I have never named my bike. I will ponder this on my next ride. Thanks for putting another wrinkle in my brain.

    I call mine the Mule and she is female in gender. I comute to/from work on her and she has to haul my fat butt, my saddelbags packed with clothing, the over seat bag and water pack. I also use her to run errands and do shopping on. I have hauled cans and bottles to the can redemption center, recyclables to the drop site in my city, ran errands to The Home Depot, Menards, Wal-Mart, a store called Bomgaars, Petco, and the grocery store. I have folding baskets I attach to the rear rack with cable ties when I run errands.

    Norco Rampage is named Heather for the stiff rear ended super hottie I used to bang in high school. Iron Horse 7Point is named Erica for the big titty super hot ultra slut I used to toss around with my early years of college. These names are strictly in my head so mums the word or my current sheila might catch on...

    Of course! Everybody in my family does. My brother has "The Grey Ghost", my wife's is "The Red Winged Blackbird" (she loves birds), mine is "The Red Rocket". (If you get the joke, you get it... if not, I'm not really going to explain it here). I went to purelycustom.com and bought everybody custom headset caps with the bike names on them. Makes for a cool gift!
