The only name mine has is "The Adventure Cycle".
Not a him or a her, just an adventurous bike.
Seems whenever there's a road (or maybe trail would be a better name) that looks like the bike will make it down or up, it decides to go that way. Seems I have no control over it.
I think it might have been a dirtbike in a previous life.

I named her "The Other Woman" due to spending so much time with her, and the wife agrees but understands.

Well, seeing as the only differences are colors (for the most part), yeah, it might be a bit of a real, biased opinion.

I named my Vulcan T'Pol. If you've ever seen Star Trek: Enterprise, you'll understand...if not, then I'm the only nerd here.

Depends upon one's taste, I guess, but how 'bout "Kate"? As in "Katherine Hepburn"?
