Do any of you give your bikes a personalised "name", like a pet? If so, what?

I even replaced the ugly Trek factory white paint job with a custom red-purple-black fade with a silver LeMondster decal on the top tube. Now I'm spiritually one with my bike:)-

Humma Hah. Custom decal applied to the cruiser's chainguard by CyclArt. It's the bike's name, not mine.
I'm glad you cleared that up...bicyclerepairman

I saw the picture you posted of it in the wayback, and thought it was actually the name of a real model. Nice decal work....authentic looking... You had me thinking something (else) was wrong with my brain...
I consider it a real model ...Humma Hah

... the only one of its kind. It is unique ... does not even ATTEMPT to be an authentic restoration, and it is a considerably better bike now than the day I bought it.. I'm the original owner, modified it into a MTB before Fisher and Breeze coined the term, and to call it what it used to be, a Typhoon, would be just WRONG!

Big, black, and heavy. Rode like a dream and took a mile to stop. Look out, icebergs!

I think I'm going to start calling my MT bike "Killer" because it keeps throwing me over it's handle bars and breaking my bones.

It's stable enough that I can whizz off it at speed.

my 3 year old quickly dubbed my bike "little blue" when it arrived in January, as she has been calling my truck "big blue" for about a year.

the color coordination was *NOT* planned

My boss actually gave it that name, since all the parts were bought off eBay. There was a stretch where a different part showed up everyday....
