The dealership I bought my bike from gives all the bikes names before you buy them. my yellow 2k5 650 was named Rose and I decided it was a good name. Though "tokyo rose" was the the name the gi's in ww2 gave to many of the english speaking female japanese broadcasters that spread propaganda. A yellow rose is supposed to symbolize friendship and freedom. I never gave my new car a name, prolly cuz it doesn't really feel like it has too much character, but I used to name my old cars; my 64 chevelle was ernie(my friends named it) and my 64 cutlass was the bananna peel(cuz it was yellow and it did nice posi burnouts).
