Grace, or the more familiar "Gracie" for a few reasons.

CJ. My late wife's initials. She died 3 weeks ago after a 6 year battle with cancer at the age of 50. Before we had children, we managed to make all but 4 states east of the Mississippi on our Yamaha Venture Royale. We always planned on getting another bike after the boys were grown, but with her cancer we weren't able to. I now ride with her in spirit. Plan on getting her initials painted on to the fairing glove box cover.

I named mine CJ, in loving memory of my late wife. Carla and I have been in every state east of the Mississippi River, all done 20 years ago B.C. (before children) on a Yamaha Venture. We had always planned to purchase a new bike after the boys were out on their own and continue our quest to ride in as many states as possible. However, 6 years ago she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and those plans were put on hold. On October 31st, she passed away at 50 years old. I purchased a 2012 Big Blue Pearl Road Glide Ultra to continue with our dream.

I named mine after my wife. This way I can ride her whenever I want!

Bike name

During my stay in Daytona for the 2006 biktoberfest, I stopped to gas up in some unknown little town after a day of riding. I paid the cashier, walked out to my bike and pressed the diesel button on the pump by mistake. Needless to say I didn't get but about a 1/2 mile before I figured out what I had done. After dumping 5 gallons of diesel gas, I named my bike at the time, a 2005 Roadking, diesel. Some members of my motorcycle club were with me when I did this, so it wasn't long before my club name was changed to Eddie-Diesel.

When I got my 11 RGC, I named it Deezul to remind myself of my stupidity.

Named mine skully because I finally did what I said I never would, and put some Willie G Skulls on my bike.
