I stopped naming bikes years ago ('68 R60/2 w/sidecar is Max & Helga, '77 R100RS is Scooter) haven't named any of the bikes since. My wife however named her Gray & White '03 Mini Cooper Gracie which was recently replaced with a white Mercedes C250 sedan she calls Elsa from the Disney movie Frozen. I refer to my '10 R1200GSA simply as the GS, and my RnineT simply as the 9T, but I don't name them. If I were to name the GS, it would be Bugly as a GS has got to be the biggest ugliest bike ever made, and the 9T as just 9T...I've been riding 45 yrs and 37 of them on BMW's because I like seeing big jugs out in the wind.... ;-)My wife gets really annoyed with me for wanting to name my bikes. She thinks it's stupid to name an inanimate object such as a bike. I think she's jealous but I want to know if there are any other crazies out there such as myself who like naming their bikes. Please chime in. Need ammo against the wife on the topic.
I have a liquid-cooled blue GS called 'Isabella' and an R NineT called 'Scarlett'...
