At first I thought you were making fun of my middle name but then I realized that you have no head.

It took me a while to come up with a name for my RGU. i came up with Alia. Paul's sister in Frank Herbert's Dune Universe. She was special to begin with and then after while became a crazy woman... Just like I am trying to slowly to do her.

Plus Alia in the mini-series Childern of Dune was pretty sexy and so is my RGU

Mine underwent a sex change during the recent upgrade. Originally my bike was Herm. My grandfather used to call everyone he met Herman. He named everything Herman, actually. My family gave him a plant one time and he named it Herman. I guess his habit just kind of rubbed off on me. But it always felt a little weird to me having a male bike name. Plenty of dudes have male names for their bikes, nothing wrong with it, but it seemed to me that Herm was a male trapped inside a woman's frame. So I took the opportunity when doing the upgrade to make the switch. Just like in real life, the switch of a few parts here and there and he was a she. The former Herm is now known as Winnie. I have no idea where that name came from, but she's definitely happy with her new identity. I guess I could have gone with Chaz......oh, wait, wrong direction.

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

my bikes name would be Scarlet Fire.
HD calls the color Scarlet Red. my bike is Grateful dead themed, and live, the grateful dead would play Scarlet Begonias into Fire on the Mountain, and would read Scarlet>Fire on a setlist.
however i never call her "Scarlet Fire" or even "her".

"Grateful Glide"or "Steal Your Glide" is what it is though. I usually say "the bike".
My Sportster i call "The Sporty".

I don't always refer to the sex of my Road Glide, but when I do, it is a
Her


i don't always anthropomorphise my Road Glide, but when I do, I call her
Enterprise


She is ridden by the most interesting man in the world.

OK, I had to look that one up. I'll save others the trouble: "Assigning human attributes to a material object." Guilty here. When I did my 48 state tour I had a riding companion, my stuffed shark, and my Roadie. We were a team of three. Not quite Tom Hanks and his volleyball Wilson, but possibly dangerously close.
