Quick story on vehicle naming , I worked for NAPA for 16 years . A guy comes in and tells me he has an 88 Jimmy and I need brakes all around . OK great I said , two or four wheel drive . Two he says , great , I get all his parts together and he is on his way . Next day he comes in toting all his parts , boxes and packing all greasy and torn to shreds ... He says , all my parts are wrong , I said from the note I printed on his slip , 88 Jimmy right ? He says no , its a 88 E350van , I just call it Jimmy . WTF !!!!!! True story . :ltr:

I worked harley parts for many years and the names these guys had was funny. There would be four of them standing around and one would say the name of his bike xxxx the others would give him the wtf look.
If your going to give it a name call it "son of a bitch". Cause one day when it breaks down thats what you'll call it.

I don't form unrealistic relationships with inanimate or mechanical objects, hence, I do not name my vehicles.
Those of you that do are on a very slippery slope........;)

So you don't become one with what your driving or riding? You ever autocross? Drag race? Do a track day on your bike? Helps build relationships with these objects relationships thst let you know what you can and can't do to them
