    What's in a name?!

    Okay, I've noticed a few of you have named your Tdub. I've always referred to my Victory Gunner as Tank. Never really thought of it as a name, but none the less I've always referred to her as Tank. Now, my new TW has quite the personality. After reading all the different names I've seen here, I'm really thinking she deserves a name. But what to name her...

    I know you referred to your TW as a her, but you should name it gym as in going to the gym. That way you can tell people you are going to the gym when you’re actually going TW riding.

    I named mine after my grandmother. TWs aren't the fastest of bikes so associating it with an elder seems appropriate. Plus it's a nice way to remember her.

    Mine is Rex T. Dubber. Rex after my grandfather. Pops is cool and unique like a TW. It started out a private(the t-dub) and has since been promoted to LCPL. So... LCpl. Rex T. Dubber.

    I like these ideas! Keep them coming!

    I never thought about naming her after a person.

    "Bender" could be a good name for your TW , I've thought of it along with the appropriate decals.bender.jpg

    I'm thinking of going with "Nibbler" to re-christen my second bike. nibbler.jpg

    All good! You know if I come up with or find a few names I like, it may come down to what's available for a license plate. After all, what better way to show off your TW!

    I just named mine Lucile after her clutch burnt up in the Idaho backcountry..."You picked a fine time to leave me Lucile"...
