I named mine Nikki. It was originally a boy, but she rode me up in the grass and smacked me around with in 5 minutes of meeting her. (First time on a bike) she gave me a bruise that lasted 2 weeks. She also has a bad additude if I haven't given her enough attention in a few days. She likes to stall out at stop signs/ lights and hills, yup she's a female with an attitude. Nikki the stubborn ninja.

Marigold McDuck is mine. The result of a lot of bantering between my hubby and myself. I forget why it was a duck name, but there's where she sits. Now I need a tiny little rubber duckie for my dashboard and we'll be good.

@CaliGrrl, that's adorable. Dash mounted duckie.

@RacinNinja, holy **** your bikes are gorgeous! Never thought I'd see a sportbike with a copper paintjob! And Old Faithful is some space-age looking machine! What kind of bike even is that, that's glorious...

Thank you! I like to keep my bikes clean.....some say it's an OCD issue, haha! CopperTop is a factory paint job too....one year Suzuki thing. CopperTop is 13 this year!

The space age bike is one my Dad built in 1977 that I resurrected and currently race, with my Dad. Thread here so we don't clutter this one up: https://www.ninjette.org/forums/showthread.php?t=258992

Given that my name is Dante, I named my bike Charon, after the ferryman that carries him across the river Styx to Hades.

It's custom plate is even "CHARON"

Oh that is so cool! I'm getting a custom plate for Hurricane too - her name won't fit in the letter limit but the Japanese transliteration will

I love this thread! I'm glad I'm not the only one who names vehicles. Haven't gone to the point of getting a custom license plate but it's a possibility in the future.

CB750: Black. I didn't name it, the self proclaimed custom shop that hacked at it named as such.
CBR: Julia. She's not as sexy as her namesake, but she's close enough to engender (mostly) fond memories.
Ninjette: Hanzo (半蔵). Both a historical figure often cited as a ninja, and a tremendously popular name for ninja characters in various fictional media. The version from Samurai Shodown is probably the fictional example I was thinking of.

An elder woman, neighbor, has named them:
250: Revzilla(Female)
675: Big Blue Bubba(Male)
Truck: Jaws(Fish lol)

Revzilla and Bubba are in a committed relationship.

I don't have a name for my bikes or truck.

Does My bike have a name ? Well, it came with one Ninja ! so I call her Ninja !
but in all the movies I've seen I don't really think Ninja is very appropriate for her... and much like the other guy on here when she breaks down the names will flow for sure ! I've worked on bikes all my life and now I'm Retired, and I don't want to work on them any more ! LOL...and then I get this Ninja... the hardest motorcycle to work on I have ever owned... you need hands the size a 3 year old has and 3 sets of allen wrenches just to get down to the bike itself.
we have a Love hate relationship, when she is running good I Love that bike
but when I have to work on her I hate it ! there is no doubt it is a marvel of engineering.... but there are times I wonder if this O'l Man is up to the challenge !, I have named only 2 other bikes Jenny and Exodus, Jenny (a 305 honda dream, served me well all her life, Exodus ( a Honda 450cc twin) never did... and I had great hopes for that machine it was My ticket away from the Ranch ! but alas that never panned out. sense then I just call them by their original names unless they empress me to a certain degree, and this bike and I have not been together long enough for that .... yet.
Bob.......
