Have you got a nickname for your CT?
on: April 23, 2013, 07:52:25 PM
Bit of a daft question but do any of you have a pet name for your CT? I affectionately called my last couple of Triumphs "Tigger" but i haven't really got a nickname for the Honda. Not even sure if it's male or female yet to be honest  :084:

Never had a name for my bikes apart from my old X7 which my ex called Callum for some reason. I think my bike(s) are she's.
What do you mean it's raining....get ootside and ride the thing.

I don't do 'pet names' for my bikes but have been moved to refer to my CT as "The Growler" as i just love the growl that emanates from the airbox when you open the throttle wide!!!  :037:

"The Growler" I like it Scotsy   :047:. Did you know that a Growler is the opposite to a Brazlian ? So your bike is a hairy ###t ?  :005: :431:

Rob you daft bugger, i read your post last night and it had me chuckling to myself all day.

Do you remember a Cheech and Chong film from years ago where they were driving around in a van covered in grass? Well  your post kept giving me visions of Scotsy riding around on a bike covered in pubes  :008:

 :431: Scotsy, its Robs fault.

In my neck of the woods, a growler is also an affectionate term for a sausage roll as well as its "opposite to a brazilian" use.
