General Motorcycle Discussion / Re: Did you name your bike?

I had a kawasaki, called it herpes because I had a right hell of a job to get rid of it. My nighthawk 700 s is called black Betty. Everyone in the village knows black Betty( bambalam).  Being as there is only about four nighthawk 700 sc left in England, she gets the looks when bigger/ need bikes ride by.

There are no hard and fast rules on motorcycle "gender". We tend to make assumptions sometimes...easiest way to find out is to avoid naming your bike until 'it' tells you exactly who and what 'it' is...and usually the name follows suit.
Aye Captain!
Wise words (that I also happen to agree with).
No wonder they kept you in charge of the Enterprise!

I guess the only other notable perturbation would be when your ride isn't happy with the gender on their birth certificate.. err title documents..
Okay, I admit it... Being silly...

I started calling mine "Lazarus" because I raised it from the dead.
but

Aye Captain !
Well stated - but there goes my theory that motorcycles are female...
I can live with that.
In the case of "Lazarus", I'm sure "he" appreciates his second chance  and will reward you with ongoing performance and reliability.

A motorcycle officer once told me to "keep the rubber on the bottom" - Sounded like good advice.

Keep the rubber on the bottom, Captain!

That's alright. For as much as I enjoy riding dirt bikes, it's about the right level of investment. Maybe when I get back to the free states I'll spring for a 2 stroke and get it plated. For now this bike is pretty convenient in CA since it has a green tag.

Enjoy the super inconvenient picture link since photobucket is lame.

I definitely appreciate the criticism.  Before photobusket started charging I had a post with pics of the seat progress and mentioned it was my first time doing a seat.  After looking at it and riding it I like it.  I like that it looks "off" a bit.  There's no other like it.  This bike is definitely not about perfect or straight lines.  I may get a bug up my butt in a few years and have a seat made professionally but not now.  Thanks bud.

That's a bit far away from me...  I wouldn't be able to convince my wife that it was an impulse buy!

I was actually trying to provide some subtle honesty myself by saying they all look DIY.
But maybe you didn't know what I meant.

2004 450 EXC in Bakersfield, CA. It runs well. Cosmetics aren't the best. Big desert tank. Needs chain and sprockets soon. I'm gonna keep riding it for now I guess.
