There is nothing more assuring than discussing your motorcycle and your motorcycle issues with fellow enthusiasts. And when it comes to troubleshooting, I find the most comforting and experienced resource is other riders of the same make/model as your bike. That is one of many reasons I am a constant reader and contributor at the Kawasaki Vulcan motorcycle forum. In fact, it is my homepage!
An interesting topic popped up the other day that I found interesting and humorous, and I thought it would be interesting to hear from Rubber on the Road readers – Do you have a name for your motorcycle? When you get attached to something or someone it is not uncommon for people to give it an affectionate name. Sometimes the name is only used in private, sometimes you have a special name for it when it is not running or causing problems – regardless, I am curious!
My current Kawasaki Vulcan 800 I haven’t named, but my past bikes all had names – “Six Shooter” for my 83 Kawi LTD 440, “Red Molly” for my red 85 Honda Magna 750, “Lady Triumph” for my 03 Triumph America 800.
