    Do you name your bikes?

    Just curious if anyone has named his/her bike? I have named my 2000 Rock Lobster my giant green road racing machine and my 2004 Serotta CDA my giant green high tech road racing machine.

    Those aren't really names, those are descriptions.

    As I sit here, I feel like weeping looking at the stripped frame that is Gala. Knowing she will not see the street until the salt has left. I look at her, and I know that I will have to buy her better components to wear by that time. She wants them and deserves them.

    Answer your question?

    How long before you get your licence back? And are you going to sell your bikes when you do?

    I used to ride with a guy that put "The" in front of everything he owned when he talked about it. His bike was called "The Tommasini" and his car was "the Taurus." His helmet was "The Giro" and his shorts were "The Pearls" and so on.

    So, I'd say "Are you going riding tomorrow?"

    And he'd reply "Yeah, I'm going to the ride tomorrow and I'll be taking THE Tommasini. I'll be wearing THE Pearls and THE Giro. Do you want me to pick you up in THE Taurus?"

    It got kind of annoying...

    I like the guides on yours, and the holes. May I ask where to get a sprocket like that one?

    You know, I would have never thought of naming my bicycle. But now that I've been
    forced to think of it I came up with a name.

    'Puppy Killer'.

    Horrible, ain't it?

    Well, to be sure I'm not sure if it (my bike) actually killed those puppies but in the course of the
    past 8 months (since I've been riding again after a 25 year lay off) me and my bike have managed
    to run over two wee puppy type critters. Both ran off screaming and yelping. I went the other way cursing
    loudly. I'm 6,1' and 230 pounds (currently, I lost a lot of weight since 8 months ago), so anything I run over that is wee sized surely gets hurt somewhat.

    So, maybe Ill get a silk screen paint job done. Black and flaming red letters 'Puppy Killer".

    That could have been an episode of Sienfeld.

    does your friend live in "The South"? I'm guilty of doing the same thing. I realized that after reading your post.

    Assuming you are replying to me, no, he just had a strange way of referring to HIS things by placing a "the" in front of them. He referred to other's possessions in the normal way like "your" Serotta or "your" Chevy, but his was always "the" Chevy. It was creepy.
