    I used to give names to my bikes but at some point I realised they do not react when I call them by name... so I gave up naming my bikes. Whats the point?

    Same with pets - they don't know their names they are just familiar with the voice signal and body language associated with it.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    To be fair though, if you've got a dog with a stupid breed name like cockapoodle or sproodle or labradoodle then 'Bob' is much better when you're shouting it in the park!

    Fookin' Fast Steed

    Nailed it

    Joking aside, as I mentioned in the other thread I named my Cube 'Rubiks'. Not just a random association, as I also like solving Rubiks cubes. However, I can't think of a suitable name for the Ribble 883.

    I have thought about '19' as 8+8+3=19, but it doesn't sound right.

    Any suggestions?
