    The Bogini [that's Polish for Goddess] named him "Junior". I've tried to come up with something I like better, but this name sticks.

    I name mine after obscure historic figures that I happen to admire for equally obscure reasons.

    The T'dub is "Hi Jolly".

    Each of my succession of KLR's has been christened "Hiroo", after Hiroo Onoda.

    If you know who either of them were, we BOTH need to get a life..

    I'd read about Onoda in the past, but forgot his name. The determination of the man... has got to be one of the most epic accounts of human endurance ever. Puts me in mind of Shackleton's adventure. Lizrdbrth, I'd love to know your obscure reason for admiring Onoda, that is, if its different from the obvious.

    Hi Jolly... Wow, that is an obscure one.

    Impressive.

    Btw, I've had my TW for 3 months and haven't found a name I like yet. Still thinking.

    I'm not in the habit of naming inanimate objects (Except for my old Remington 600. "Lucille". Not very original). Out of dozens the only vehicles I've ever named were my 5 KLR's (which I kinda treat as one. I fear change) one old truck and more recently, the TW. For me to name something the name has to jump out at me and give me my own private giggle every time I look at it.

    Onoda was just one of those goofy things. For whatever reason I remembered his name and can recall exactly where I was the day he surrendered. Several years later I got the opportunity to make a bit of a study of him and whatever else the man may have been (Actually near as I can establish he's 91-ish and still kickin'. Nuff said.) as far as I'm concerned he forever re-wrote the definition of "tough". After failing to kill my first KLR at some point I thought to myself "This damned thing is tougher than Onoda".

    Near as I can tell Hi Jolly may have been equally bada**ed and even more unsung, but mostly his life and story kinda ties in with local history and at one time I was gunna retrace the route of the Camel Corps, the hard way. That plan kinda fell apart, but it's still on my list. When I installed the 350 tank on mine it kinda reminded me of the hump on one of these and for now you might say it serves the same purpose, so I figgered it was time to name another bike knowing that if asked it would once again probably be best to keep it to myself. LOL :

    Now it makes complete sense why you named those bikes what you named them.

    And... Onoda was relieved of duty, there was no surrender!

    True that.
