Please Help Me Name My Road Bike

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Heisenberg for no other reason than it's a good name with an excellent pop culture reference. I suppose it's also because riding is like meth. The addiction and how it makes you look stupid skinny.

I am out of touch with pop culture. Werner Heisenberg, the great physicist must not be who you are referring. Schorodinger is another cool name.

Breaking bad is a must see, culturally a landmark that is excellent and thought provoking on so many levels.

I tried watching the first season. I couldn't get into it. I am actually a chemist and have/had no interest in the show. Though everyone tells me I should watch it. Meh. That makes sense with the meth reference though.

Don't know how far you got, but Walter White adopts the name Heisenberg. I watched bits and pieces here are there when it aired. The GF had never seen it so we got NetFlix. We both became hooked. It get's more intense with each season.

My bike's name is "My bike." You can, of course, pick any silly name you like.

Current ideas are as follows:

- Black Dynamite (hilarious movie and fitting based on color scheme)
- Oreo (recommended)
- Shamu / Orca / Killer (recommended)

Thank you all in advance.
If you don't have another Kestrel, then "the Kestrel" is a great name. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with "the Talon."

Given the themes you seem drawn to, you might consider:
  • Napoleon Dynamite
  • Ding Dong
  • Willy
