    bike names

    I decided to personalize my Kona with a name. Anyone else name their rides?

    I call my Kona, "Kona". Actually, mine has so many names (Hei Hei, King Kahuna) plastered all over it, I'm thinking about removing some of them. But, no, I haven't named any of my bikes other than what they are labeled.

    "$#@%#% Bike!" Is a frequent one....



    Seriously though, I name my bass guitars and all my boats have had names....but really never a bike. It is always "My Schwinn LeTour", "My Rainier" or whatever the model is called. Well, except for my current Rincon. That one frequently is called "The ill - tempered, Zebra striped bike"....
    Remember when we were kids and our Mom's said we could not play in the mud? I'm making up for it now!!

    I have always named my bikes something embarrassing like "Schwinn Le Tour". It keeps them humble.

    My bike is called "The Octagon".

    My front wheel is James Westfall and rear wheel is Dr. Kenneth Noisewater. If you righteous trails play your cards right, you might just get to meet the whole gang.

    when it breaks down. Does that
    count?

    I haven't named my bike yet. We are still getting to know each other.


    Right now I call it broken.

    Monocog = Monolog (due to its weight)
    Superfly = Stupify
    Vive LeRoy = LeeRoy (as in Bruce Leeroy)

    My rig has a custom headset top cap that has my user name on it.

    But I commonly refer to my bike as "my other, other woman". My first "other woman" is my truck.

    My bike has many names. The most frequently used are...
    Gary (Guess why )
    My precioussssss...
    Heavy cow. (usually on ascends)
    Worthless piece of cr*p. (when something breaks)

    There are other names but they aren't that common.

    I've owned maybe dozens of bikes, but my current bike, a Yeti SB-66 carbon, is the first one I've named, and it's called "Socks" which is short for "Tube Socks and Super Glue". My new DH bike (which is currently being built) shall be dubbed "Teh Bruiser" I think, as that seems like a suitable moniker AND it'll be a matte black and ano blue color scheme.
    The older I get, the faster I was.
