This is a discussion on you know what really grinds my gears... within the General forums, part of the Caferacer.net Forums category; huh? never knew that. no no im not wound up at all, i just couldnt stop myself from being cheesy with the family guy reference ...
huh? never knew that.
no no im not wound up at all, i just couldnt stop myself from being cheesy with the family guy reference on a motorcycle website. plus all the replies from craigslist ads in my phone start with "yah i still have her" or "she runs great" and when i hear those words i dont really believe that the person spouting them out has any clue what there talking about. just from my experience.
and geeto with the zinger!
from now when i refer to one of my bikes, ill use bitch, as in "the bitch runs great", "got new shocks for the bitch" , "wrecked the bitch" etc.
I like my shocks like I like my women. Cheap and Chinese.
I`ll be a gentleman and call mine `Darling` whenever it fires up on the first kick, different story when Im on 3rd or 4th attempt, its a definitely being a stubborn bitch then
i didnt even think about that. ive definitely said thanks baby when it starts up first kick and i need to get somewhere fast.... i guess i was overzealous with my posting (walks away with tail between legs)
I hate it too by the way. But then again I do it all the time.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.

I kinda throw up a little in my mouth when people name their "project" bikes. Like Bonita Applebom, etc…..
Having said that I unofficially named my Intruder Rosie….as in AC/DC Whole Lotta Rosie……(ain't exactly pretty, ain't exactly small)
It came about when I was on a 2 week bike tour - had a lot of time to think and talk to the bike…..
"a bike takes ALMOST as much effort to keep as a girlfriend"
I bought a DR350 and lost the girlfriend because of it. Generally.
DR350 is easier to deal with, but the girlfriend was more funner to wash when dirty after a hard days riding.
I've never personified my machines, save for The Wizard(CB450).
