Well...I decided that, if I wound up with a green Versys, I'd name it "Pistachio."

Let us know what you choose. I'm in the same boat and am almost settled on a name for my Titanium Versys.

I've found that the best "names" happen when you are least thinking about them. It may be something somebody else says - "Hey that thing looks like a _______" or something you use repeatedly to describe your rig to others "The Versus looks like a motorcycle from the movie Transformers, but in day glow green". Just relax and enjoy the ride and you will know when you hit on the perfect name. Trying too hard will only muddle your mind. PS: NO, I am not a psychologist.

That's exactly how I hit upon the preliminary name for mine. The front end reminded me of something. Now? I'm just going to keep riding her to see if the name matches who she really is.

The most bikes I've had at one time was three.............I just referred to them as "a bike". My wife didn't care which one I was taking out as long as she didn't have to go along.
