    Do you name your bikes?

    What's it's name and why?... or.... Why don't you name them?


    I had never named any of my bikes until the S1000XR..... I had put a lot of thought into it......

    It's name is Christoph Waltz

    Named of course, after the actor. Similarities between the 2 just occur too often....

    -Both made in Germany...
    -Both Classy..
    -Both... sleepers; in that, They seem calm and collected but can go berserk quite easily and quite excessively... to others' surprise..
    -Both can seem very nice and even cause smirks and giggles...
    -Both can have a very dark, almost evil portrayal...
    -Both capable of more than they appear (sleeper again)...

    Although on occasion, I call my bike, "bike".

    The gs is Frank. Hes a reliable guy that always works when I need him to. he only gets lazy when I'm not ordering him around enough(not sexual).

    The Tacoma is Tammy. She's a little trashy but very reliable, not in the best shape but other guys always look at her when we drive by. (mostly sexual)

    Have not named the xr or the zrx yet, accepting suggestions.
