    What is your Bikes rad name?

    mine is Gloria, which was originally the name i liked best when i came to older women. But it now has two meanings, as it is the name of one of my favorite characters from a Douglas Coupland Novel "The Gum Theif"

    Ya shes an elegant and regal lady who enjoys the finer things in life and yes, i enjoy being creative with my bikes nameThis is Television; Late Night Television; Scripted with Percision; a Corner Store Pulp Fiction

    i have been naming my bikes since i got my first road bike.

    - blue lagoon
    - death weave (this one had a nasty habit of shaking violently when the rear rack was loaded)
    - red scare
    - white out (my current whip, the shogun)what does he commute to clowntown on that thing

    I like to name my bikes according to their ethnicity:

    '74 Raleigh: Sir Reginald Wordsworth of Nottingham
    '76 Fuji: Fumio-san
    '78 Guerciotti: Guiseppe Veloce d'MilanoThink you're escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.

    there is only one car amongst team gigantic, unless you count mary's car, but alexi has never had a driver's license so he only gets rides in it.

    erik maybe hiding on though, who knows what/who he actually has/does.

    I do miss the Red Menace occasionally. Eventually I sold it to a scrapyard for $50 after a friend drove it into a parked car. Damage to my car in that accident: $800. Damage to parked car: $80. Damn that thing was a death trap!Word nerd

    What if you think of a name for a bike WHILE you're riding it?Think you're escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.
