I've begun to refer to my bike by another name. It's been several months since my last encounter with any avian "fly-over" evidence, so the CrAFT (Chromium Avian Farkle Target) no longer sticks....so to say. On Father's Day I made this post to the forum where I debated changing the name of the bike to 'Tickets' because I thought that I would be receiving a few performance achievement awards from the local officers. While that has not been the case, I've thought about the name and it sticks due to the numerous lottery runs I've made for Powerball tickets in North Carolina. If you're still searching for a name for your ride, just give it some time and it will come to you. I tried to name my bike shortly after it landed in the garage, but it doesn't seem to work that way.

Naming a motorcycle can be frustating. However, I have found in the past if you just ride her as usual as well as admire her for a while her name will come to be. My wife and I have ridden our 99lt for two years so far but haven't come up with an appropriate name as of yet. Patients has always been one of my virtues so when all the factors fall into place at the right time and place we know she will be labelled once and for all. Good luck on naming her but wait to be sure her name is appropriate.

My wife simply calls the bike The Mistress.

"Where's Ken?"

"Oh, he's off with The Mistress again. I'll probably hear from him in a day or two." :D

In my case, I unknowingly purchased a very loving mistress that has a well documented albeit sorted history. She began life in New Braunfels, Tx with a knowledgeable gent before she was "traded" for a younger one (you know how those Texans are). Then she was exploited for her body to a well known "offender" in Sacramento, Ca Ultimately, she was sent to a Doctor in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, hoping she could be rehabilitated. I believe. The doctor gave up very shortly, as she has a terrible wild streak and then I found her. With the history the old girl has, she still keeps me "satisfied" and she has no problem keeping up with the younger ones.... :D

Although she has a new set of implants (clutch and GB)! :histerica

At least your wife has a sense of humor about it. My wife doesn't like any jokes referring to that subject. And saying, " Just kiddin' honey", doesn't cut it either.

Yeah, I nabbed a good one. :)

Why, she didn't even mind when I took ol' Barbara out for a spin down the Dragon and across the Cherohala a few years back (Hi there, Hoss :D).

I don't know how to break this to you... so I might as well come right out and say it straight up:

Your mistress had a "sleepover" at my house before moving in with that miscreant in Sacramento. ( :wave ) She really got around. :D

I have an 05 LT and never named it but my wife did. It is the DDM, which stands for the "damn, dumb, motorcycle". Probably fitting since she has never set a foot on the thing! I started calling the DDM the first year and oh well.

After my Helga (stereotypical German name) was totaled last spring, I picked up her replacement near Nashville.

Dolly came to mind immediately since:
1. She is so damn top heavy
2. I bought her from the neighbor of Dolly Parton's former personal assistant.

You're only the latest in a very long string to come up with the name "Dolly" for just the reason you state. Fortunately, I was never one of them.

I used to simply refer to her as the "fat lady" who could dance once out of her chair till one day my wife overheard me talking to another rider at a rest stop and assumed I was referring to her (wife). Since that day, which will remain in my memory for ever, I refer to my LT as Clementine - as she reminds me of that old Bobby Darin song - Chubby Clementine.
