What you name her?.....or him?

Just thought i would get a thread going with some pix and brief background info on the zx's. I call mine Mattie May after my grandmother who recently passed while i was stationed at fort bliss. Plans are to repaint emerald green and call it green lantern. Heres how she looks. Just got a custom Supersprox in the mail emerald green 40 tooth rear 520 . also 16T renthal ultra light front and 3d chain. Puig smoke windscreen trex frame sliders with zx10 logo. Currently saving for akro evo

"Precious" is my girls name. She is named after the ring in the JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series. The character Gollom/Sméagol is obsessed with the ring and calls it "His Precious". Kind of the way I feel about the bike.

Her, of course it's a "her", cuz my bike has two HUGE (or is that Y'ooge) jugs...

I call her, "She who must be obeyed, The Mistress of Fury"... or sometimes just "M....F...'n" for short.

Always thought it was silly to name a bike or a car or a fishing rod or a stool. I call mine the zx10, or zx, or zx10r, or ninja, or the green one, or the track bike, or the fast one. Depending on who I am talking to and their level of sophistication with motorcycles, dictates what i call it, because i have a few bikes. But naming it a women's name just seems plain silly to me. Also, OP, i have never seen a painted bike that looked as good as an OEM one. They always seems to look gaudy and ghetto. I have seen some race fairings on bikes whose vinyls were done by dripping wet look better than oem bikes tho.

@or10r; love the Tolken reference. Maybe i should call mine Old Toby hahahahaha.

I don't know why, but for me the only machines that should have girly names have propellers and dropped bombs in the 40's.

I call mine "It", as in from Stephen King's "It", or more specifically from the movie when the clown is staring up through the sewer grate.

I'm new to 1000cc so I'm not really sure how to perceive it, as in the same reaction I would have if I caught a glimpse of a clown looking up through a sewer gate... I would double take, and move in to get a closer look, once I realize what it is all about I get freaked the fk out. Same with my throttle!
