what do you call your bike?

now I know some people like to name their bikes, so what do you call yours?

Mine will be General KLusteR when I get him.

Depends on the situation.
Usually "my bike".
Occasionally names that I am not allowed to use on this site.
One or two phrases with the word Kluster in it.
Most times it is my fault but I blame the bike anyway.
Welcome and good luck with yours.

Too young for medicare
Too old for women to care
I aint paranoid. The whole world IS out to get me.

I hear ya. there have been times with previous bikes, namely my last one, blueballz that it has brought me to using colorful expletives in place of the proper name. and thank you.

Mine is now called "bambi killer" largely due to the fact that in june as I was returning from Moab, Utah, I was nailed by a deer near Olean NY, putting me into a nice 60mph+ lowside down the interstate. KLR 1, deer 0 I only broke one bone in my thumb in 5 pieces, 3 ribs and a partridge in a pear tree

I'm boring..
My KLR is "The KLR"
My Wing is "The Wing" or occasionally "The Road Couch".
My Strom is "The bike that won't leave".
My scooter is " The Yamati"..

I wish I had names for them, but they've never struck me as something to name. Oh well..
