What did you name your bike?

Any well-loved vehicle needs a moniker. I had a 1988 Suburban in the family for three owners named 'Big Bertha' and an original bug-eye WRX named 'Blu Ru'. What did you name your new Trail 125? Mine is 'Trailer Swift'. (My pre-teen girls may have had a hand in its naming...) Now, I'm not a pop music guy, but the Honda red is a very close approximation of the color of Taylor Swift's typical lipstick. Further, it's anything but fast, so 'Swift' is ironic. What'd y'all come up with (aside from the well-documented 'Little Red Donkey')?

a few of mine were named but not nec by me. the funniest one is the 'white bike of death' being my liquid cooled rd. its the only bike i've crashed on, and did it 2x. (gf named that one) I had one called 'the frog' before, (green and white kawi h1 that was very, very modified) and one of my r5's is 'barney'. the naked red concours is 'clifford'. the trail is just the '125 honda'

""Red" for SN 36 and "Black" for SN 48, with LRDs or 125s used collectively. Black is mine since my birth year is 1948. Red is wife's due to bust size...(I wish) LMAO)...:giggle:. I color coded some accessories to make them determinable from each other at a distance so you don't mount the wrong one when together. Chain-guard largest add on thing in color but you can only see from left side.

I just got my bike last week. I really got lucky. I called Freedom Cycles in Grandview, MO on Tuesday at 9 when they opened for the week. They had one, but it was sold. An hour later they called back to say the guy didn't want it anymore and I could have it! I've done 264 miles so far and it's been a blast. I took it to Denny, my auto mechanic to show it off this morning. His first words were "Well isn't that precious?" So there it was--
My Precious!
Thanks Denny!

I think I'll call mine the Missing Link... or the Missing Bike...maybe just Missy for short, since Honda doesn't seem to be able to deliver more than a couple of dozen bikes to the U.S. It's been 8 months now since I put down my deposit. I'm keeping my hopes up for at least a 2023 delivery.

Hey that's great. I still can't believe how lucky I got to get one about 10 days after I knew I wanted it! Let me know if you find some trails around KC. I can't find anywhere to het offroad legally.

My Trail will be called “Conchita”, after the donkey/mule ala the Juan Valdez coffee folks.
