im the lone person on the planet that thinks giving your motorcycle some silly name is just retarded.

I ran across this guy at the gas station.

Me: Hey, whats up man, nice bike.
Him: Oh thanks.
Then he actually does a Vanna White presentation arm swing thing, and says.
Him: This is Shadowfax.
I waited for a curtain to open, or angels to descend from heaven trumpeting on golden trumpets or something, and when that didnt happen.
Me: Shadowfax? really?
He had a look on his face like he just realized how silly he sounded, and quickly changed the subject.
Him: so, what is that?
Me: Its a Honda Silverwing . . . . . . Just Silverwing.
He went inside and wouldnt come back out, i even sat at the pump and made 3 calls. As i was finally leaving, i thought to myself. " ill bet a thousand dollars he has a name for his dick too"

Wow I would never think of any cute names for my bike or truck even thought I have a nice name for just about everything else on the planet.

And I find it utterly ridiculous to complain in a public forum about other people's tastes or preferences. Yeah that's just what we need to be doing in America - the same thing as everyone else. Russia tried that for 70 years or so. Lemme know when you realize how that turned out.


As for me, well I've been naming cars and bikes since the mid 70's when my older brother tricked out my green '75 Volkswagon Super Beetle with a Pinto engine and my girlfriend then named it "Turtle" because it looked like one but it sure wasn't slow. Twisted Evil

I name my vehicles because I want to.

One could argue that it's as retarted to name a boat as it is to name a bike.
Even US super-carriers have names if I'm not mistaken.
And wasn't it Enola Gay that dropped the first A-bomb?

People name pets they own. Parents even name their children rather that letting the child choose their own name. I certainly wouldn't have used the same name my parents gave me.

Not sure if 'retarded' is the correct word, personally I would have used 'sad'

Cheers,

p.s. I own 'Black Beauty', 'Slivering', 'Licence Loser', 'Flying Shed', 'Windy', 'Min', 'BillyBongo'. and 'Load Lugger'. (But I keep the names in my head Laughing )

Indeed, strange people who call their two children "tarmacburner".

I've known worse names, in fact I have probably been called worse. Laughing

Giving one's motorcycle a name -- who would do such a thing? Time to get Revere out of the garage, start my morning ride, and forget such foolishness.

+1. It was the way he "presented" his bike that made me laugh.

I stand by my statement, so far, from the responses, Im justified when i said "im the lone person on the planet that thinks giving your motorcycle some silly name is just retarded." And i didnt even mention cars, people, aircraft carriers, pets, and somehow, the fall of Soviet Russia?

And it wasnt even a Shadow, it was a Vulcan. Im thinking it should have been named Spock, or Pom-far, or, live long and prosper or something. But really, if you would have seen the way he did the Vanna White thing, you would have been hard pressed not to laugh!

Okay, sounds fair. Yeah, I would probably laugh at the "Vanna White thing" too. Speaking of presentations though, it was how you presented your post that fostered my and others reactions. However, text is well known to be a limited form of communication. So, no worries. Smile

OLD JOKE:

A man pops into a bar to use the bathroom, which is locked and has to be buzzed open by the guy behind the bar.

When the man asks to use the bathroom the barman says.
"Under one condition. You have to tell the bar the name of your penis."
The man is in shock, as all the patrons agree and start rattling off the names of their members.
Finally realizing it is a gay bar, and regaining his composure, the man smiles and says, "Mine is named SECRET".
The barman is puzzled. "Why secret?"

The man replies, "Because its strong enough for a man, but made for a woman. "

If you don't get that joke, highlight the white area below and the explanation will appear:

Secret is a brand of deodorant in the USA that is targeted at women.
Their slogan is "Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman."
