What is your bike’s name?

Just curious. Never named mine - yet. Working on it. Love to hear the names of your bikes.

Cool Kiwi is her name

Me and my son were texting back and forth right after I got her. His spell check kept changing Kawi to Kiwi. So now she is known as Kiwi,

I try to be the kind of person my dogs think I am

Big Mean Green Machine.

Actually I don't call it anything.

It usually calls me saying: "Hey you old fossil. How bout you throw a leg over me and ride!" and I usually do.

Mine is White Fantasy 2. First, yes, it is white even though 2011 was a red year. The first owner just had to have white and changed out all the body panels. The first White Fantasy was a 1983 Porsche (in white of course) that was lowered and had a near race suspension. Driving that car came as close as possible to the phrase "Driving this is better than s_x!"

Never named any of my bikes, but they get a pat on the ass quite often.

Once referred to it as the "Adventure Ninja" but after this week I've called it all kinds of inappropriate things that should not be mentioned on a family-friendly forum.

Years ago, in my mechanicing days, one of my cohorts, came back from a motocross event and kept raving about these fantastic new bikes called Kawolskis and how fast they were. Needless to say, it is nearly impossible for me to hear the name Kawasaki and not think of my dim-witted friend. So my 2008 is named "Ole Kawolski"

I kinda thought they already had names. 'The Versys", "The KLX", "The Voyager", "The Road Glide", "The Guzzi", "The Himalayan", etc.

If I had to come with with individual names for all the bikes I have owned over the years, I would have to have a database to remember them all! LOL!

I don't think he had a V-2. The photos are of the first generation.

I liked the looks of my 2nd generation more than the 3rd because it is unique. The 3rd looks like it was influenced by the Tiger 1050 and the Ninjas. Having only one light lit when on low beam on side to side lights is something I just have a hard time getting used to.

I thought it is a rule that everything Kawasaki green must be referred to as "snot-rocket.
