So it seems to be a good mix of people who name and don't name. I find that when I name an inanimate object it gets stolen, then I care about it and it hurts. I never named my jeep then when I got my window bashed and radio stolen I didn't feel bad for the jeep.
Cool names. Are there any special reasons you chose the names? Nothing seems to fit my bike...yet. Since most of you all are men, and name your bikes a female name, does that mean mine could be a male name?
I usually call my Schwinn "Schwinn" but lately I have posted it many places online as the "Minstrel Cycle" of The Bicycling Guitarist. I made up that pun back in the 1980s when some people called me a traveling minstrel.
from my web site: "I've been called a traveling minstrel. Does that make my Schwinn a minstrel cycle?" Someone in a songwriting forum added to the pun last year by saying "only if you play ragtime."
