Personal bike names?

Talking of Wee and, choke, Glee, what name do you have for your Strom? I thought I should have a name for my 650 but never could come up with something with a good sensible ring to it. Suggestions?

This has been done twice before. I found one thread.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

I have almost never been able to settle on vehicle names. There are four I did name, but thirty others never suggested anything.

Bike's names

My first VStrom was named "Little Miss Magic", felt like she took me through the turns, it was like magic.

Then my second Vstrom was silver, and as I rode it, "Sargent Pepper" came to mind, it seemed to fit.

I think it's a bonding thing.

I only name mine when they crap out. Then they are all called POS!
Almost as silly as referring to it as he or she. It's a chunk of metal!
