I ride a
CBR1100, GSXR750, XR250
I agonise long and hard over names for my bikes.......

Long ago I had a CBR600 and it was known as "the Bike".
Then I bought a CBR1100 and it's name was "the big Bike" and the CBR600 became "the little bike".
A few years later I bought A GSXR750, which I christened "the Gixxer".
I then sold "the little bike" and the CBR1100 was renamed "the 'Bird" (CBR1100 is also known as the Honda Blackbird).
I then took up greenlaning after buying a Honda XR250, which I named "the XR" or "the greenlaner".

So, 'Bird, Gixxer or XR. :D

I ride a
2014 Yamaha R6
Watched the first couple of seasons, then i kinda lost it.
Midway season, after Monty deceased. :(:oops:

Have had the chance to start it over yet.
Yeah that was sad, I think V7 redeemed the series though

Spoiler alert?
You're good man, Monty was actually the creator of the show not a character! He passed away unfortunately :(

Fun fact: Monty actually voiced a character, then when he passed his son took over the voice

What year btw? I actually can't stand older bikes sadly, but occasionally I find one that just gives me the butterflies, and this one does for some reason.
It was a very customised 1983 (iirc) Yamaha XS400, originally it'd have looked very very different! :)

I ride a
2011 Triumph Rocket 3 touring
every one of them, plus trucks, cars, boats and my tricycle. because they each have their own attitudes just like folks. My old Sonoma was Emily the corpse Bride (just kept on living after dying), my F250 is Athena Wisdom and Warfare, My 82 Honda Magna was Sarah Conner , and the 2011 Rocket III Touring is Dacey (had to pick a ‎Hinckley Name), Project Pulled pork became Babe "the pig", Project Broken Whing became Pretty Ricky's Girl. Its just good luck.
