Most of my vehicles have names:
- 1994 Trans Am is "Mullet" (self explanatory)
- 2005 Chevrolet 2500HD 4x4 pickup was "Bubba" (roll up windows, rubber floor instead of carpet, big tires)
- 1996 Chevrolet 1500 4x4 with mismatched fender and door is "Cletus" (needed a name more country than Bubba)
- 2001 Yamaha FZ1 is "TWYSTY"
The names all kind of make sense and just came to me, either as inspiration or comments from friends.
I first rented an Africa Twin for a guided tour throughout Slovenia last year and it got named very quickly. I went with 5 of my best friends. The bike was a red 2016 that we named Squirrel after the 2nd or 3rd day as it was light, fast and often darting about in the streets.
Since then I bought my 2018 Adventure Sports. I have over 5,000 miles on it and it hasn't "earned" a name yet. A buddy keeps bugging me about that, but it can't be forced. I absolutely love the bike, but maybe this bike never gets a name... Who knows...
