    I don't name my motorcycles, but I always thought "Buck Naked" was funny, as I ride buck naked.

    I'm tempted to name my new carbon black rt "bruise" since the color is black and blue.

    I call my current RT "Ol Thunder" because its Thunder Gray Metallic ......

    It pretty much depends on the day and what I rode yesterday. Don't want to wear em down. There's Pete, the Tennessee Walker, Ruthie the App, Button the little Morgan, and Annie the thorobred racer:

    Name

    Would that be the name you called it when your drive shaft / finale drive destroyed itself again?

    1976 R60/6 "Little Blue" (Because she is, well little and blue... it was the "smallest" Beemer BMW sold at that time, and the color is Monza Blue)

    1974 R90S "Grey Ghost" (Because the previous owner named it so, to honor its legacy plus the name felt very fitting)

    1981 R80G/S "Marfa" (Because I traveled many times to Marfa, Texas and Pinto Canyon Road and area might be some of the best R80G/S terrain)
    sometimes one goes slow, sometimes one goes fast.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.
