Does your ride have a nickname?

2624 57
I thought this could be a fun post...does your ride have a nickname? Curious to see what others have come up with, especially our friends from around the world! Post a pic along with it if you can!

My Scout is Kavorka, after Kramer on Seinfeld. Its a joke between my wife and I. In Seinfeld, Kavorka is supposed to mean 'The lure of the animal'. It is something like the animal attraction which causes friends to adore you and women to lust after you. So if you have got the Kavorka, you are said to be a real player and some kind of Casanova.

I affectionately refer to my Road King as "Pas Bon". I'm Cajun by birth and in Cajun French, it's slang for a person that causes trouble or is "no good". The RK belonged to my late father in law and we joked about the Indian vs Harley rivalry and his "Pas Bon" bike.

Edit...after posting this thread, of course, I saw there was an older, similar thread about nicknames here , but hey, it's 2022...maybe we can start fresh?

Lord Bard Prime. Lord like a Baron. Bard is my fav character I play in League of Legends. Prime, because if it were a transformer it would most definitely be a Prime. And Lord just sounded good because Bard Prime was a bit short.

My new Pursuit is Zaptan (5 in Sioux), since this is my 5th Indian.

I've become a little more reflective as I get older.

My Triumph is called Charlotte - the feminine of Charles,
My Indian is called Toni - the feminine of Tony.

I'm the last of three biking brothers, my two older brothers Charles and Tony both died while riding their bikes, Tony at 16 and Charles at 49.

I like to feel they are 'with me' when I ride and as I get older, riding (for me) is a way to honor and remember them.

Cheerio,
Roy
