I have been riding for 49 years. I enjoy it , it is a passion. I like bikes big,small old and new. But in the end they are machines not people or live pets. Some will for ever stick in my mind. The 1996 FB we still have is a bike we just had to much fun on ,parting with it would be painful. My grandchildren have named them. Things like big red ect but just never really worked for me.I have to agree with this. In my family every vehicle has had a designation that we all know and understand, but giving vehicles actual names just struck most of us as silly.
