I have had my LT for only 3 weeks but already my girlfriend and I refer to it as "The Bus".

I am sure that you too have become so affectionate with your bikes so, What is yours called?

Lunch Truck

Mine got named the Lunch Truck because every time I take a long ride, my wife sends me off with cookies and brownies. So when we stop for a break, the trunk opens up and out comes the lunch! Also, I have a tendency to ride a couple of hundred miles for lunch.

My bike is called "MEINBYK," and it sometimes rides in my "BYKTRLR," which is pulled by "MEINTRK." Three guesses as to what the personalized license plates on each vehicle say :).

"Oh, Kay"!

I was rolling through the gears one day just after getting her and I thought to myself "Ohhhhhhhh, kkkkkkkkkkkk" (as if saying Ohhhhhh, baby! :D ). Thus she earned the name "Oh, Kay".
It was really hard on me when I dropped her since she has a name and all.

Officially U-99

Officially "U-99" but in the first couple months when I was learning to handle the weight and dropped her twice I started calling her the "Pig." As in I going out on the road and wrestle the pig around. New that I'm more comfortable she is no longer a pig but a greyhound.

mine is in the sig line, but the best I've read since joining this forum is the BRILLIANT member who named his Anna Nicole...if you're lucky he'll post and you'll see his signature line for the explanation...

The LT's official name is "Emil". Named by the original owner, and left it at that out of respect for him. He's quite a guy and has been through a lot. But, my original name for it was the Spruce Goose because it will eventually fly, but it takes a while to get it there. After getting more accustomed to it, I gave it another name, "das Schlepper Boot", or the tug boat

too soon to tell

I've only had mine one day and she hasn't screamed out a name to me yet. That is why my sig has (TBNL) in it. It is for "To Be Named Later". I was thinking Die Blau Frau (the Blue Lady) just because it rhymes, but it seems too generic. I'm sure she'll let me know what she wants to be called soon enough.

I am enjoying this thread, though.

Gray Ghost

I resisted (or rather, just didn't think about) naming my LT until I saw my own shadow going down the road one day. Yes, we were trailering the bike, but it looks like a riderless bike (that's where the "ghost" part comes into play) is following us.

I took this picture. The bike is gray, the bike's shadow is gray, and I'm gray. That's where I got "Gray Ghost" from. I also like the alliteration. :)
